PHAkt is an open-source PHP extension for Macromedia Dreamweaver MX, allowing PHP generation using the same techniques as when developing ASP/JSP/CF. PHAkt has a lot of improvements over the original PHP_MySQL server model of Macromedia Dreamweaver MX, including support for multiple databases in a transparent way, support for MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MsSQL date locales, user authentication server behaviors, master/detail server behaviors, go to detail page server behaviors, improved code generation, and multiple and extensible recordset support. IIS and Apache 2 are supported by using absolute redirects.
NeXTensio is a collection of server behaviors and commands designed to boost programmer productivity for task automation and form generation. It based on UniFORM, the Unified FORM Architecture, and UniVAL, the automated validation algorithm. NeXTensio allows developers to concentrate the application logic in one location, while allowing Insert/Edit/Delete operations. This provides great flexibility and a centralized way of dealing with form logic. It includes KTML, the online WYWIWYG HTML editor, and the Improved Repeat Region, which features list filtering and sorting.
distcc is a parallel build system that distributes compilation of C/C++/ObjC code across machines on a network. It can be set up in just a few minutes and makes builds up to ten times faster. It does not require machines to share a filesystem or have the same libraries or header files, and installation does not need superuser privileges.
Autotools Bootstrapper scans a package's Makefile.am and configure.in (or .ac) and creates a customized bourne shell script which can create the configure script with a single command. The resulting bootstrap script can also be used to clean all autogenerated files from a project's directory tree, which is useful for importing into a CVS server. This tool is especially useful for developers who are not familiar with the use of Autoconf, automake, and libtool.
Clover makes the gathering and analysis of code coverage metrics as painless as possible. It features include tight integration with the Jakarta Ant build tool and accurate, configurable coverage recording. It gathers Method, Statement, and Branch coverage data. Compile-time properties and source level directives allow for precise control over the coverage gathering process. Coverage data can be viewed in XML, HTML, or via a Swing GUI. Report-time options allow for the exclusion of particular statement types from coverage analysis. Plugins for the Eclipse, NetBeans, JDeveloper, JBuilder, and IntelliJ IDEs are provided.
UltraMake is a powerful tool for the management of build process from source code to binary software releases and for setting up automated test suites for the produced software. Its most important features are access to a standard scripting language (Tcl or Perl), extensive consistency checking of builds, and support for division of larger projects into smaller parts while retaining full consistency checking between the parts. It integrates with version control systems.
