Oracle has built-in support for timezone conversions with its NEW_TIME function. NEW_TIME, however, has no understanding of changes in the time zone for daylight-savings time or non-US timezones. The TZ package presented here interfaces with external functionality to allow for a more general timezone conversion facility.

xMySQL is a PHP class that simplifies using MySQL databases. It is designed to be simple and effective, leaving out all "unnecessary" functions in favor of only those most frequently used, such as connecting and disconnecting from a server, and executing SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE queries.
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.
The DataBean package is a Java library that provides features for mapping a database table to a Java class (databean). The coding of the databean class must conform to a preset pattern so that the instances of the databean classes can perform common database operations without using much of the ugly SQL. DataBean is functional, stable, light-weight, and easy to use. It can make your application much easier to write when dealing with relatively unsophisticated database operations.
SchemaScanner is a Java/JDBC tool designed to assist developers and DBAs in examining and understanding Oracle database schemas and database contents. It automatically scans an Oracle database, verifies that the database design conforms to generally accepted design principles, and samples the attributes of all specified entities to determine basic data mining elements, including uniqueness, percentage null, and data variance. It produces an XML output file which can be formatted using supplied XSL output formats to generate a reverse-engineered schema, an attribute usage profile, or document schema structure exceptions. Since the output format is well-formed XML, custom reports can be easily constructed from the generated XML file using XSL. A limited use version is available as freeware for non-commercial and educational use.
