Fix8 is a modern open source C++ FIX framework featuring complete schema driven customisation, high performance, and fast application development. The system is comprised of a compiler for generating C++ message and field encoders, decoders, and instantiation tables, a runtime library to support the generated code and framework, and a set of complete client/server test applications. For the same message, Fix8 encodes 3.2 times faster and decodes 2.3 times faster than Quickfix, an average of 2.7 times. In other words, it reduces encode latency by 69% and reduces decode latency by 56%.
Due to C portability, OpenOffice.org's usual middleware, Universal Network Objects (UNO), could not be designed object oriented. With NOA-libre you can still access UNO, but also the NOA-libre object oriented layer atop UNO. Being based on UNO, NOA-libre is network aware, meaning that you can use it to have your local office installation execute some commands, or an OpenOffice.org installation anywhere on the world, provided you have a appropriate network connection and privileges. With NOA-libre, you can: embed OpenOffice.org windows in your Java applications or applets; remote control OpenOffice.org windows on your desktop, over the network, or "headless", i.e. only functional without visible output; and/or extend OpenOffice.org by writing Java plugins. NOA-libre is compatible with OpenOffice.org and LibreOffice, easier to deploy than the usual UNO-only Java applications, and allows you to interact with various OpenOffice.org components (but is by far most commonly used with Writer and Calc).
Dr. Geo is an interactive geometry program that is distributed as a universal portable application. It allows one to create a geometric sketch and manipulate it according to its constraints. It is usable at home or at school, in primary or secondary education. It is simple and effective with extended features including scripting and programming.
Castle Game Engine is a cross-platform 3D game engine written in Object Pascal. It includes a flexible system of 3D objects, with out-of-the-box levels, items, intelligent creatures, and more. Rendering and processing of 3D models in X3D, VRML, Collada, and other formats is implemented. Many graphic effects are available, including shadows, bump mapping, shaders, mirrors, and screen effects.
OpenSAND, formerly known as Platine, is a user-friendly and efficient tool to emulate satellite communication systems, mainly DVB-RCS - DVB-S2. It provides a suitable and simple means for performance evaluation and innovative access and network techniques validation. Its ability to interconnect real equipments with real applications provides excellent demonstration means.
