Orac is a GUI tool for Database Administrators written in Perl, Tk, and DBI. It organizes many useful DBA scripts into a nice graphical interface, for collecting statistics on your database, or diagnosing problems. It currently supports Oracle, Sybase, and Informix. Richard Sutherland's DDL::Oracle Perl module has been integrated with the current version for the Oracle side of things, greatly improving the Oracle developer options on the program.
XDBM is a database designed specifically to handle XML data. It offers greater speed (since the data is stored in a preparsed format), lower memory usage (since only those parts of the file needed are loaded into memory) and faster searching for XML elements. XDBM can also parse and store plain text XML files. XDBM aims to be as close to the W3's DOM specification as possible. XDBM also comes with utilities for converting between XDBM file format and plain text and for reading XDBM files in less and emacs.
Adaptive Server Enterprise, (formerly Sybase SQL Server), is optimized for OLTP and mixed workload environments, with unique features that allow it to adapt to the unpredictable requirements of the Internet. Adaptive Server Enterprise is specially designed for high data availability, while providing predictable, high performance with terrific scalability. The package includes the standard features of Adaptive Server Enterprise and all related connectivity components.
ColdStore is a gigabyte-scale persistent object store which mmap()s objects into a file (for persistence), can allocate objects in a minimal working-set of pages (for speed), permits library versions to change without a rebuild of the store, permits application checkpoint/restart. ColdStore might be used to replace a database, cache highly structured objects, act as an OODB, make STL persistent, act as a Document Store for XML/SGML/HTML, create a MUD. Future projects include a virtual machine toolkit, ports of several languages, VM and byte-interpretive language workbench.
This release of Domino further demonstrates Lotus' commitment to supporting multiple platforms on Domino and continuing the strong momentum Linux has generated in the enterprise and outsource community. <BR><BR> PS : Only the Server is available under linux at the moment. No client yet.
The unixODBC project provides Unix applications with the same ODBC 3.51 API and facilities available under Windows. It provides a Driver Manager that supports the full ODBC API and performs the ODBC 3 to ODBC 2 translations with UNICODE to ANSI conversion. It also includes a set of graphical utilities that allow users to specify connections to DBMSes to be used by applications, a collection of ODBC drivers including a simple text based driver, an NNTP driver, a Postgres driver and others, and a selection of templates and libraries that to aid in the construction of ODBC drivers. It works with MySQL, Postgres, StarOffice/OpenOffice, Applixware, iHTML, PHP, Perl DBD::ODBC, and many other applications and drivers. Connection pooling is also provided to increase performance with applications such as PHP.
Easysoft JDBC-ODBC Bridge enables Java applications and applets on any JVM to access any remote ODBC data source, such as MS Access or SQL Server. It is a Type 3 driver certified by Sun Microsystems for use with J2EE™ branded products. The client driver is 100% Java, eliminating the hassle of client side ODBC drivers. It is compatible with any third party ODBC driver and gives multiple concurrent access to multiple data sources from multiple client devices. It is built for commercial use with high transaction rates and dependable performance. It is compatible with all leading Web application servers and Java™ IDEs.
XSet is a performance oriented main memory XML database and query engine. XSet is meant to be a low level application component that enables applications to have high speed access to stored metadata in the form of XML documents. In order to achieve the highest possible performance, XSet does not support the notion of transactions. Compared to its industry and research counterparts, XSet is miniscule. It uses a simple subset query model which is surprisingly complete for its current set of target applications. Examples of XSet applications include metadata file systems, searchable email clients, user preference registries, service discovery services, and online customized content portals. Performance evaluations have shown XSet to scale logarithmically to dataset size, and can handle hundreds of request per second on off the shelf desktop machines.
The OpenLink Universal Data Access Driver Suite is a suite of high-performance drivers for ODBC, JDBC, OLE DB, and ADO.NET that enable development of database-independent applications. It supports OpenLink Virtuoso, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft ACCESS, IBM DB2, Informix, Sybase, Ingres II, Progress, PostgreSQL, DBASE, Paradox, and other ODBC-compliant databases. It runs on x86, Itanium, Opteron, PPC, and Sparc, etc. platforms.
