Alma is a software workshop for modeling and analyzing. It reads several sources (languages, models, etc.), helps you design for object-oriented modeling (definition of classes, relations, patterns, etc.), modifies the structure and the code, and outputs new sources, documentation, diagrams, etc. It is designed for object-oriented modeling (definition of classes and relations) and for migrating code in older languages. It meets two needs, offering a simplified software modeling workshop for small projects and making it easier to do rewrites, ports, and encapsulation of non-OO code.
ANTLR (ANother Tool for Language Recognition) is a language tool that provides a framework for constructing recognizers, compilers, and translators from grammatical descriptions containing C++, Java, or Sather actions. It is similar to the popular compiler generator YACC, however ANTLR is much more powerful and easy to use. ANTLR-produced parsers are not only highly efficient, but are both human-readable and human-debuggable (especially with the interactive ParseView debugging tool). ANTLR can generate parsers, lexers, and tree-parsers in either C++, Java, or Sather. ANTLR is currently written in Java.
APRIL is a symbolic programming language that is designed for writing mobile, distributed and agent-based systems especially in an Internet environment. It has advanced features such as a macro sub-language, asynchronous message sending and receiving, code mobility, pattern matching, higher-order functions and strong typing. The language is compiled to byte-code which is then interpreted by the APRIL runtime-engine. APRIL now requires the InterAgent Communications Model (ICM) to be installed before it can be installed.
ArgoUML is a pure Java open source UML CASE tool that provides cognitive support for object-oriented design. ArgoUML provides some of the same editing and code generation features of a commercial CASE tool, but it focuses on features that enhance usability and support the cognitive needs of designers. Uses XML file formats: XMI and PGML.
NFSv4 specifies that the RPC calls be batched into a "compound" call. There is no support for this in RPCGEN. By rearranging the ONC IDL for NFSv4 into AutoGen definitions, these templates will emit the original IDL *plus* all the code to package, send, distribute, collect, return, and dispatch the results. The distributed program author merely needs to call and supply server procedures for the routines specified in the IDL. Templates for these calls and service routines is provided, too. The NFSv4 definitions are included.
Clig uses a simple description file to create C-code to interprete the typical *NIX command line as well as an up-to-date usage-message and a manual page skeleton. It supports Flag, String, Int, Long, Float and Double types, with ranges, defaults, and more. The generated C-Code is ANSI but has been reported to work with C++. It is self contained code which does not depend on any library other than libc. Included is a TCL-only TCL-package to instrument your TCL scripts the same way as your C-programs.
clo++ is a command line option parser generator. Given an XML file that contains a description of your program and its options, clo++ can generate code to parse its command line. In addition to code generation, clo++ can also generate man pages. Other languages and output formats can easily be added because clo++ generates its output using templates.
EJBWizard is a GUI Java app that allows you to fill in forms to create the prototype code for an Enterprise Java Bean. All 4 types of EJBs are supported, and if you have an existing database connection in your JOnAS server, it will allow you to log in to the DBMS and pull field definitions into the bean-generating process.
Euphoria is a simple, very high-level programming language. It has automatic garbage collection and lots of run-time error checking. The Euphoria interpreter makes it easy to develop and debug applications. The new Euphoria to C Translator converts any Euphoria program to C. You can then compile it to get a stand-alone executable file that runs almost as fast as compiled C.
