Velocity is a Java-based template engine. It permits anyone to use the simple yet powerful template language to reference objects defined in Java code. When Velocity is used for Web development, Web designers can work in parallel with Java programmers to develop Web sites according to the Model-View-Controller (MVC) model, meaning that Web page designers can focus solely on creating a site that looks good, and programmers can focus solely on writing top-notch code. Velocity separates Java code from the Web pages, making the web site more maintainable over the long run and providing a viable alternative to Java Server Pages (JSPs) or PHP. Velocity also provides template services for the Turbine Web application framework, making a template service that allows Web applications to be developed according to a true MVC model.
Dragon produces a consequent, object-oriented, integrated scanner and parser solution and scales for very large grammar definitions. It provides LR(1) and LALR grammar analysis methods and combines the lexical and syntactical analysis and the corresponding code generation. Either C++ or Java code can be generated. The resulting parser code is readable and clean, and can easily be integrated into any C++ or Java application.
Marathon is a GUI test tool that allows you to play and record scripts against a Java Swing UI. It's written in Java, and uses Python and Ruby as its scripting language (the emphasis being on an extremely simple, readable syntax that customers/testers/analysts feel comfortable with). Marathon includes a recorder, editor, player, and debugger to simplify working with test scripts.
Aubit 4GL compiler is a programming language based on (and compatible with) Informix-4GL. It provides an easy way to generate screen/form based programs, since statements for handling Windows, Forms, Menus, SQL, and similar are built-in. With support for SQL statements forming an intrinsic part of the language, it's especially suitable for developing database-oriented applications. Database connectivity is provided for PostgreSQL, MySQL, Informix, and others via ODBC. It supports both ncurses (console mode) and GTK+ (GUI mode) output.
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.
re2c is a tool for writing fast and flexible lexers. Unlike other such tools, it concentrates solely on generating efficient code for matching regular expressions. This make it suitable for a wide variety of applications. The generated scanners approach hand-crafted ones in terms of size and speed.
Cibyl is a programming environment that allows compiled C/C++ programs to execute on Blackberry and J2ME phones. Cibyl uses GCC to compile programs to MIPS binaries, and these are then translated into Java bytecode. The use of binary translation and the simplicity of translating MIPS instructions means that Cibyl programs can be quite well-performing. With Cibyl, programs written in C/C++ can be ported to Blackberry and J2ME without switching languages.
