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.
COID is an object-oriented networking library with a tool that automatically generates a lightweight communication layer directly from a C++ class declaration. The coidgen tool automatically extracts designated classes and methods from specified header files and generates a corresponding client class and host dispatcher. The server library manages networked and local connections and provides various services to running objects. The communication layer establishes either remote connection through TCP or direct (vtable) connection between the client and the server (if they reside in the same process).
Spiritbot is a suite of agent/bot applications with an IRC core. The core component interacts with a natural language chat interface (Scheme/LISP) base that parses input natural language (chat) input and then tries to come up with valid responses. The focus of the chat centers on technology.
Shimari is a simple, flexible, lightweight component enclosure for standalone Java applications that translates a configuration file into an object hierarchy. It is similar in purpose to Apache Digester, except that responsibility for instantiation is encapsulated in the object's constructor, and the resulting objects form a loosely coupled collection of co-operating components.
Better ASN is a Java ASN.1 API that focuses on speed and efficiency rather than extended functionality. This strategy prescribes one-pass decoding and near 100% encoding efficiency for typical ASN.1 usage patterns. Although BASN was developed for use by a Certificate Authority, the release comes packaged with an ASN.1 to Java compiler, which can be used to generate Java implementations of ASN.1 structures. This allows the API to be used for any Java application that may require ASN.1 decoding/manipulation/encoding.
Etiquette is an interaction protocol construction toolkit. The project's goal is to build a framework for rapid design of network communication code. Etiquette interaction protocols are intended to describe valid communication processes that can occur in networked applications, along with error-handling code. Etiquette provides protocol tracing and single-stepping support.
Format XML allows data formats to be defined through a Java Swing GUI application, and stored as XML and saved to a Web database to be shared amongst users. The XML definition of the data format can then be used to generate Java source code that can parse the format that has been built.
