CodeWorker is a versatile parsing tool and a universal source code generator. It interprets a scripting language for producing reusable, tailor-made, evolving, and reliable IT systems with a high level of automation. The file formats to parse are described in an extended-BNF syntax. Template-based scripts drive the writing of patterns for generating code or text. The code generation knows how to preserve protected areas with hand-typed code and provides code expansion, source-to-source translation, and program transformation. It provides a native translation of CodeWorker's scripts in C++.
Groovy is an agile, dynamic language for the JVM which combines many features from languages like Python, Ruby, and Smalltalk and makes them available to Java developers using a Java-like syntax. It is designed to help get things done on the Java platform in a quicker, more concise, and fun way. It can be used as an alternative compiler to javac to generate standard Java bytecode to be used by any Java project or it can be used dynamically as an alternative language, such as for scripting Java objects, templating, or writing unit test cases.
Jess is a fast, light rule engine and scripting environment written entirely in Java. You can build Java software that has the capacity to "reason" using knowledge you supply in the form of declarative rules. It is supplied as a programmer's library, making it ideal for embedding in larger applications. Jess includes development tools built on the Eclipse platform. It is free for academic use and can be licensed for commercial use.
ActivePython is the industry-standard Python distribution, available for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, AIX, and HP-UX. It is 100% compatible with the reference distribution of Python. Code tested with ActivePython will run on any Python installation that has the appropriate extensions installed.
MDK (MIX Development Kit) provides tools for developing and executing, in a MIX virtual machine, MIXAL programs. The MIX is Donald Knuth's mythical computer, described in the first volume of The Art of Computer Programming, which is programmed using MIXAL, the MIX assembly language. MDK includes a MIXAL assembler (mixasm), a MIX virtual machine (mixvm) with a command line interface, a Guile-based virtual machine (mixguile), a GTK+ based GUI (gmixvm), and a mixvm-Emacs interface (mixvm.el). MDK utilities are extensible using Scheme.
Java Development Environment for Emacs (JDEE) is an Emacs-based integrated development environment (IDE) for developing Java applications and applets. Features include multiple code browsers, a JPDA-based debugger, method and field completion, template-based and procedure-based code generation, Java source code interpreter, context-sensitive help, and more.
Gauche is an R5RS Scheme implementation that aims to be a handy tool for daily work. Quick startup, a built-in system interface, and native multilingual support are some of its goals. It has an OO system similar to STklos and Guile. It supports UTF-8, EUC-JP, and Shift-JIS multibyte encodings natively.
