Builder Xcessory PRO for Linux is the industry's most advanced graphical user interface builder for Motif. BX PRO provides a comprehensive visual reuse environment that speeds development of mission-critical applications. BX PRO integrates three best-of-breed tools to create an unparalleled application development suite.
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.
DWI, Data With Interaction, is an Object-to-Relational Mapping (ORM)-based RAD (Rapid Application Development) system for rapidly creating data-driven desktop GUI applications. It maps SQL tables into several object systems, including QOF, GLib GObjects, and GTK/GNOME. It can be used with the Glade GUI designer. It supports multiple databases through ODBC and libdbi.
The Oculus Layout System supplies a Java layout API, and an easy-to-use visual builder, which works with both Swing and AWT. Main features include a proprietary stretching model, which enables the system to automatically infer how to properly stretch almost any user interface, and a cursor-based layout paradigm which dramatically improves the readability and maintainability of the layout code.
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.
Uxtobx processes user interfaces generated by the UIM/X Motif GUI Builder tool developed by Actional and converts them into an UIL file that ICS’s Builder Xcessory (BX PRO) can read and manipulate. Conversion is accomplished by giving the tool a list of files on the command line, which are read in and parsed. The resulting BX PRO UIL file is written to stdout and can be saved using standard file redirection. Any C/C++ code saved in a .i file is moved into a file called usercode.c during conversion process. After conversion, the user starts BX PRO and reads in the generated UIL file.
Phptempt is a template engine for PHP and Java. Templates are precompiled and then included to the script/Java program as a PHP script/Java program. Templates are organized in blocks and placeholders, all placed in one single file. Blocks may be recursive. A version of the engine is available that is optimized for Java and particularly useful for the creation of code generators of any kind.
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.
Jamon is a text template engine for Java that is useful for generating dynamic HTML, XML, or any text-based content. It has a rich feature set that supports encapsulation, parameterization, functional decomposition, and reuse of presentation logic. Because it is compiled to non-reflective Java code, and statically type-checked, Jamon is ideally suited to supporting refactoring of template-based UI applications. Templates declare the arguments they require for rendering, including dynamic template content ("fragments"), and are translated into Java classes with public methods whose signatures reflect the arguments declared in the templates. This provides compile-time type- checking as well as excellent performance.
