VoltDB is a blazingly fast relational database system. It is specifically designed to run on modern scale-out architectures: fast, inexpensive servers connected via high-speed data networks. It is aimed at a new generation of database applications - real-time feeds, sensor-driven data streams, micro-transactions, low-latency trading systems - requiring database throughput that can reach millions of operations per second. What’s more, the applications that use this data must scale on demand, provide flawless fault tolerance, and enable real-time visibility into the data that drives business value. It includes client application drivers for applications written in Java, C++, C#, PHP, and Python. VoltDB community members have also authored client libraries for Erlang, Ruby and Node.js. There are streaming export capabilities for leading analytic database environments, including Apache Hadoop.
ZixFS is a simple embedded file storage based on a Zip file structure. It has been developed as an alternative to GridFS, but is still not on par with it. The main objective is to provide a powerful filesystem under a Windows 32-bit environment, with the capability of handling terabytes of data, which is not offered by GridFS. The original ZipStorer class library was developed Jaime Olivares.
Polar POS is a point of sale system that integrates support for biometric readers, electronic shelf labels, RF terminals, time attendance, payroll, automatic ordering and re-ordering, price changes, inventory management, and promotions management. It uses the MATE desktop environment and provides additional security through checksums and sandboxing. Hardware from NCR, IBM, Datalogic, Honeywell, CherryPOS, AdvanPOS, Logic Hardware, and others are supported using OPOS drivers.
Piglet is a tool for parsing and lexing text for the .NET framework. The purpose of Piglet is to provide an easy-to-use tool for parsing text which can be easily included in any .NET project as a single assembly. In contrast to most parser generators, Piglet provides a fluent interface which enables you to express your grammar in a syntax which is accessible for users with no prior experience of parser generators. Piglet generates efficient, type safe, and reentrant LALR(1) parsers at runtime, which saves you from having a pre-compile step to generate your parsing tables. It also includes a lexical scanner generator which can be used independently of the parser generator.
System# is a .NET library intended for the description of real-time embedded systems. It comes with a built-in simulator kernel and a code transformation engine that converts a design into synthesizable VHDL. The main focus is currently the development of FPGA designs. System# not only supports register-transfer-level (RTL) descriptions whose translation to VHDL is straightforward, but is also capable of converting clocked threads with wait statements to a synthesizable VHDL state machine. Furthermore, System# introduces synthesizable transaction-level modeling features. From a technological point of view, it uses reflection and assembly code (CIL) decompilation to reconstruct an abstract syntax tree (AST) from the system design. The AST conforms to SysDOM, a document object model for describing component-based reactive systems. An unparsing stage converts the AST to VHDL. The decompilation process can be instrumented in various ways by attribute-based programming. Furthermore, transformations of the AST itself are possible. This enables implementation of advanced features such as converting clocked threads to finite state machines.
Aspose.Slides is a .NET component to read, write, and modify a PowerPoint document without using MS PowerPoint. It supports files from PowerPoint versions from 97-2007 and all three PowerPoint formats: PPT, POT, and PPS. It lets you create, access, copy, clone, edit, and delete slides in your presentations. It can save PowerPoint slides into PDF format and also save presentations in SVG format, Streams or Images.
