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.
Grammatica is a parser generator (compiler compiler) for C# and Java. It improves upon similar tools (like yacc and ANTLR) by creating well-commented and readable source code, by having automatic error recovery and detailed error messages, and by support for testing and debugging grammars without generating source code. Grammatica supports LL(k) grammars with an unlimited number of look-ahead tokens.
SQLpp is an SQL query generation framework for C++ and .NET. Its main features are .NET assembly, automatic SQL code generation, multiple database support, solving table joins puzzles, support for update, insert, and select queries, C# class wrapper generation (generates an entire Data Abstraction Layer), generation of a DAL for DotNetNuke or your application, Graphviz database representation generation, and smart stored procedure generation.
SMC takes a state machine stored in an .sm file and generates the state pattern classes in fourteen programming languages. Its features include default transitions, transition arguments, transition guards, push/pop transitions, and Entry/Exit actions. It requires Java SE 1.6 or better.
Gentle.NET is a CLS-compliant, database independent object persistence framework. It has an extensive feature set, excellent performance, and reasonably complete docs. It features automatic SQL generation, object construction/caching/uniquing, validation, bindable list support, relation management, transactions, and much more. Oracle, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Firebird/InterBase, MS SQL Server (incl. CE), MS Access, SQLite, Sybase, and Sybase ASA are supported. It includes a NAnt build file as well as VS.NET project files for building under Windows. Mono 1.1.4 and higher is fully supported.
The QueryDOM library is a DOM-based technology whose purpose is the generation of SQL queries at runtime. It's based on a single model representation of the query to be rendered. To represent the SQL query, QueryDOM elements are linked to each other to form a data structure known as the QueryDOM graph, which models the structure of the SQL grammar. The QueryDOM defines types representing the logical structure of the query string in a way that is independent from the specific DBMS. The object model is simple to extend for specific database features.
Caffeine is a free high-performance interoperability solution between the Java platform and the .NET framework, with special emphasis on the enterprise variants of such platforms. It makes software originally written for .NET available to the Java platform. It promotes library reuse between Java and .NET by transferring APIs across environments, and allows code written for one platform to run on the other platform with minimal performance degradation. It is powered by Mono, and runs on Alpha, Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, HPPA, SPARC, and s390 systems.
Visual Paradigm for UML is a Unified Modeling Language (UML) design tool that supports all UML diagrams, SysML diagrams, and entity relationship diagrams. Visual Paradigm for UML provides extensive use case modeling features, including full function UML use case diagram, flow of events editor, use case/actor grid, and activity diagram generation. Visual Paradigm for UML produces system documentation in PDF, HTML, and MS Word formats. A developer can design system documentation with the template designer. A system analyst can estimate the consequences of changes with impact analysis diagrams, such as matrix and analysis diagram. Visual Paradigm for UML generates Java code.
SDE for Eclipse is a UML modeling environment tightly integrated with Eclipse IDE. It lets you draw all types of UML diagrams (use case diagrams, class diagrams, component diagrams, etc.) in Eclipse, reverse source code (Java, C++, XML, XML Schema, CORBA IDL, etc.) to UML models, and generate Java source from UML diagrams. It features the latest UML notation support, a Rational Rose importer, an XMI importer, Microsoft Visio integration, HTML/PDF documentation generators, and plug-in and template support.
