Isobel is a framework to build complex information retrieval and analysis systems. Isobel can be functionally divided in two subsytems, Isobel Gatherer (the crawling and filtering subsystem) and Isobel Analyzer (the analysis subsystem). The two subsytems can also be used separately. Isobel Gatherer offers ready-to-use services like content fetching, scheduling, document format conversion, Hyperlink graph storage and analysis, content storage and indexing. A programmer may easily add new services. Isobel Analyzer uses the IBM UIMA architecture to reuse the analysis components developed for this architecture.
jSlovo is a fast database engine with a GUI that was designed for free dictionaries. It can create a file-based database from a text file and then be used to search it for particular words. It can scan any large number of file-based databases and the size of the databases is not limited. HTML tags can be used in the text files and for cross-references.
