QoSDB is a QoS registry designed for supporting QoS management in realtime SOAs. It can be exploited for gathering QoS data related to different functional behaviors of the application (application operating modes) and for predicting future performance based on historical data. A modular architecture allows for defining various models for the prediction of resource requirements under a set of conditions which has not been observed yet. This allows for achieving nearly-correct resource allocation (self-configuration) for the application with a great reduction of needed observation/benchmarking points, especially in those contexts in which the space of possible configuration parameters is big (e.g., multimedia applications supporting arbitrary resolutions). By leveraging the QoSDB, SOAs can be built with auto-tuning capabilities, for better exploitation of internal resources while guaranteeing the QoS required by users.
LDAP Authentication Plugin for MySQL (auth_ldap) is an authentication plugin for MySQL Server. It allows you to create SQL users which are going to be authenticated using an LDAP server. This minimizes administrative duties, since your users will be able to reuse their existing accounts to access the database. The plugin requires MySQL 5.5.7 and up. It is compiled as an add-on, and does not require you to alter MySQL source code or recompile the entire server. The plugin adds support for LDAP using the openLDAP library.
Libcvautomation is a GUI automation and testing tool based on image recognition and response. This program was designed as a direct replacement for Sikuli and Xpresser. Each solution had large problems with crashing, and both refused to function on Red Hat Linux and Ubuntu 12.04. The author really liked the way each of these programs approached GUI automation, but they simply didn't work. As such, a simple library was designed to integrate OpenCV and XTest, which can be used by BASH to drive GUI testing and automation, and works on both new and old Linux distributions.
Subsurface is a dive log program. The user can download dive information directly from a large number of supported dive computers. Subsurface is able to track multi-tank dives with air, Nitrox, or TriMix, weights and exposure protection used, dive masters, and dive buddies, and allows the user to rate dives and provide additional dive notes. It calculates a wide variety of statistics of the user’s diving and calculates and tracks information like SAC rate or OTU. Subsurface allows the user to print out a detailed log book including dive profiles and other relevant information.
M-Pin Strong Authentication System enables true two-factor authentication for Web sites and applications, based on the open source M-Pin Authentication Server and M-Pin Managed Service. The M-Pin Managed Service is a highly available, fault tolerant software as a service that issues cryptographic secrets to M-Pin Authentication Servers and Clients. The M-Pin Authentication Server uses just one leak-proof cryptographic key, and can't reveal any information about your users such as identity or login details, even if the key is compromised. The M-Pin Client is an HTML5 browser, so developers can easily integrate M-Pin into their Web sites and applications, enabling frictionless two-factor authentication and removing all username / password vulnerabilities.
