Turck MMCache is a free PHP accelerator, optimizer, encoder, and dynamic content cache. It increases performance of PHP scripts by caching them in a compiled state, so that the overhead of compiling is almost completely eliminated. It also uses some optimizations for speeding up PHP scripts' execution. It typically reduces server load and increases the speed of PHP code by 1-10 times. It is tested with PHP 4.1.0-4.3.3, and Apache 1.3 and 2.0 under Linux and Windows.
ERW (Entities and Relationships on the Web) is an innovative system for handling complex databases using a Web browser. It uses the most recent standards endorsed by the W3C to offer to the user a sophisticated environment, similar to a dedicated client. Moreover, the user interface is generated in a completely automatic way starting from a conceptual description of the database by means of an XML-based description language for entity-relationship schemata. From the same description, you can also automatically obtain diagrams and documentation. ERW can be used for content management, in particular when the data is structured along complex relations.
phpCodeGenie (PCG) is a code generator for database driven applications. PCG can talk to different databases and generate entire applications for you. While the core version generates mostly PHP code, phpCodeGenie can be modified via user plugins to generate code in any programming language. It will build data entry forms, insert scripts, database lister scripts, edit record forms, update record scripts, delete confirmation scripts, delete scripts, search forms, search scripts, and other frontend/database interaction code. Basically, it provides a basic code base which you can build on.
phpHtmlLib is an application development framework for developing OOP style Web applications in PHP. The application framework supports an MVC style architecture and Ajaxable and Cacheable interfaces for developing rich client Web applications. It comtains a set of PHP classes and library functions to help facilitate building, debugging, and rendering of XML, HTML, XHTML, WAP/WML Documents, and SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) images as well as complex HTML widgets.
Ice is a modern alternative to object middleware such as CORBA or COM/DCOM/COM+. It is easy to learn, yet provides a powerful network infrastructure for demanding technical applications. It features an object-oriented specification language, easy to use C++ and Java mappings, a highly efficient protocol (including protocol compression), asynchronous method invocation and dispatch, dynamic transport plug-ins, TCP/IP and UDP/IP support, SSL-based security, a firewall solution, and much more.
Lumenation a complete middleware and framework environment with its own SDK, LightBulb. It is a complete browser-based WYSIWYG PHP development suite that includes an application generator, a code editor (with context and classes prompting and highlighting), a GUI application interface, record locking, record access journaling, HIPAA, FERPA, and DOD application compliance, user application logging, transaction logging, user monitoring, a library of PHP classes and data access security, report, query, and SQL builders, a source code manager, an application management system, and a virtual desktop system metaphor, and many other features.
Metastorage is a PHP data access object generator compiler tool. It implements an object persistence API from a description in an XML format named CPML. The persistent object classes implement object-relational mappings, so developers do not have to write SQL manually. It features an object query language for specifying conditions for querying objects, generation of classes for producing reports, generation of classes to manage templated Web forms for creating new persistent objects, and generation of UML class diagrams. It can be run from the command line or from a Web interface.
PHP GEN reads the list of tables in a database, lets you select one, then reads the structure of it, suggests a basic (modifiable) configuration, and generates good-style and easily maintainable PHP code capable of listing, searching, adding, editing, detailing, and deleting records. Both the generated code and the engine itself use Pear::DB for the database-abstraction layer and Smarty for the presentation/interface layer. Master/detail (foreign keys) are supported.
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.
