OIO is a Web-based metadata/data management front-end which is built using Zope and works with Postgresql. No programming is required to build and manage Web-forms or to perform data mining/analysis on the collected data. It is in production at the Harbor/UCLA Medical Center for clinical outcomes management and research data. Forms created with OIO and hosted on any OIO server can be downloaded as XML files. Once downloaded from the "Forms library" and imported into an OIO server, the necessary database tables are automatically recreated and the imported forms become immediately available to the users of that OIO server.
UniT is a general purpose text generator written in and with full access to Java. It can be used to generate any text of any format, including program code of any programming language (Java, C, C++, SQL, etc.), or documentation of any format (HTML, XML, RTF, LaTex, etc.). It is similar to JSP, but easier, more general, and more flexible. With an appropriate parser (XML-Parser, like DOM), UniT can also be used to convert text documents.
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.
Cheetah is a Python-powered template engine and code generator. It can be used as a standalone utility or it can be combined with other tools. Web developers are its principle user group, but it has many potential uses and is also being used to generate C++ game code, Java, SQL, form emails, and even Python code.
phpHtmlLib is an application development framework for developing OOP style Web applications in PHP. The application framework supports an MVC style architecture and Ajaxable and Cacheable interfaces for developing rich client Web applications. It comtains a set of PHP classes and library functions to help facilitate building, debugging, and rendering of XML, HTML, XHTML, WAP/WML Documents, and SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) images as well as complex HTML widgets.
Cameleon a Framework for developing reliable database applications in a technology independent and predominantly editorial way. User interfaces may be easily exchanged from Swing to HTML and vice versa, and databases may be exchanged in the same manner. The Swing variant framework is established. The HTML user interface is under construction but can be reviewed on the project Webpage ("Test sample application"). Cameleon's target users are programmers who manage midrange data volumes (from thousands to millions of database records) and who prefer simplicity and availability rather than animation. Business features such as security management and parameter administration are supported in the framework. The framework allows web developement without any knowledge of JSP, HTML, Servlets etc. Data input elements (and groups of them) may be used in Java Server Pages.
Youhp3 (Youpee's One Unlimited HTML PreProcessor) is an HTML preprocessor that allows you to embed code of any script language, as well as calling any external program to generate text files. It is specifically designed to work with HTML/XML documents, and provide traditional features, such as define, include, macro, conditional tests, and loop.
Dynamator solves the server pages maintenance problem by completely separating HTML from server code for any technology. It merges pure, standard HTML with server code stored in separate XML files to produce standard server pages in technologies like JSP, XSL, PHP, and Java. Benefits include a more agile HTML UI, a streamlined internationalization and customization processes, easier reuse, and more efficient code.
