The Kawa Scheme System is a full Scheme implementation, completely written in Java. Scheme functions and files are automatically compiled into Java byte-codes. Kawa does some optimizations, and the compiled code runs at a reasonable speed. It provides the usual read-eval-print loop, as well as batch modes. The Kawa compilation framework is also useful for implementing other languages on top of JVM. There is active development of XQuery (the XML query language), and less active development of Emacs Lisp, Common Lisp, and EcmaScript.
Qexo (Query Expressions for XML Objects aka Kawa-XQuery) is an implementation of W3C's draft XML query language XQuery. XQuery is a high-level expression language whose values are sequences of nodes (as in DOM) and simple values. It includes syntax for embedding XML or HTML results, and a 'for' statement comparable to SQL's 'select'. This implementation uses the Kawa tools to compile XQuery programs to Java bytecodes that can run on any JVM. XQuery programs can run as servlets, as standalone applications, or from the command-line.
xmlizer configurator/server is a client/server approach for custom database to XML mapping. The configurator is used to set up projects and the server delivers the processed requests on demand (like a Web server) according to the mapping rules made with the configurator, which includes a drag and drop GUI. One module is for dumping databases (or parts of it) in a fixed format and the other module can build XML instances satisfying a specified XML Schema (or DTD).
BIE (Business Integration Engine) is an open source integration system that makes it easy for organizations to exchange data with external trading partners regardless of their native applications. It competes in the same space as applications like Microsoft BizTalk except that it is truly cross-platform since it written in Java.
phpWebApp is an application framework which makes it easy and simple to build PHP Web applications based on relational databases. It separates the task of designing and changing the layout of the application from the task of implementing the logic of the application, by using XML templates that are an extension of XHTML. It also simplifies the task of implementing the logic of the application by offering an event based programming model. In addition, phpWebApp tries to offer modularity and code reusability to the community of Webapp developers.
