XINS is a technology used to define, create, and invoke remote APIs. XINS is specification-oriented. When API specifications are written (in XML), XINS will transform them to HTML-based documentation and Java code for both the client-side and the server-side. The communication is based on HTTP. XINS competes with the complex SOAP technology. Main design goals include simplicity, scalability, and testability. XINS is not only a specification technology, but also an application development framework. It offers transaction logging, unique log documentation, and active code generation.
Kohana is a PHP 5 framework that uses the Model View Controller architectural pattern. It aims to be secure, lightweight, and easy to use. Although it reuses many common design patterns and concepts, there are some things that make Kohana stand out. It is community driven, uses strict PHP 5 OOP to provide visibility protection, automatic class loading, overloading, interfaces, abstracts, and singletons, and is extremely lightweight. Kohana has no dependencies on PECL extensions or PEAR libraries. Large, monolithic libraries are avoided in favor of optimized solutions.

Kalisko is an application framework. Its modular architecture allows applications to easily be built from several individual components. The current development focuses on the implementation of an IRC client, though other kinds of software are possible in the future. Features (already implemented modules) include: a small core application with a simple but powerful module system that runs on Windows and Linux; a simple IRC client using GTK+ for visualization; scripting support in Python, PHP, and Lua; a Lua console; a PHP console (Linux only); a powerful serializable data structure that can be stored in memory or written to files; a cross calling interface (xcall) that allows functions to be called and defined in and from any language; and many more.
The PHP7 Framework provides a hybrid API for easier Web application security. It adds an exceptional filter feature on the superglobal input variables, which can be used, for example, as '$_GET->filtered->text["easily"]'. The simplistic db() implementation adds easier parameterized SQL atop PDO. phunction is used as a bootstrapping framework, and LiveUser is included as a permission backend.
