The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to develop an all-in-one Internet application suite. It contains an Internet browser, email and newsgroup client with an included Web feed reader, HTML editor, IRC chat, and Web development tools, and is sure to appeal to advanced users, Web developers, and corporate users. It uses much of the Mozilla source code powering such successful siblings as Firefox, Thunderbird, Camino, Sunbird, and Miro.
PhpPeanuts is a framework for developing database-backed applications in PHP. Rather than building an application from the bottom up, you initially only build domain model classes in which you specify properties, relationships, and database table names in metadata. The framework dynamically scaffolds getters and setters, persistency, navigation over relations, and input and delete validation. The abstract user interface instantly offers a rich set of pages for searching, browsing, drilling down, editing and reporting over your domain model. From there on you extend and refine both the domain model and the user interface to make it what you want by defining specialization classes and overriding inherited methods.
WaveMaker is a RAD development tool for Web and cloud apps, with more than double the monthly downloads of any other RAD tool. Its visual, drag, and drop tools flatten the Java learning curve by 92%, enabling any developer to build enterprise Web applications that deploy to a standard Java platform. The WYSIWYG studio creates standard Java applications with 98% less code, boosting developer productivity and quality without compromising flexibility. Applications are cloud-ready and include built-in support for multi-tenancy and elastic scaling.
SiteFusion allows object-oriented PHP applications to operate as OS-native applications through a XULRunner-based thin client. The client connects to the SiteFusion daemon through an ordinary Web server, and applications run in separate continuous processes. Two-way communication is enabled, without the need for additional Web server configurations. The implementation of the XUL framework in a PHP class structure includes an implementation of the Mozilla tree view optimized for very large trees, supporting drag-and-drop, editable cells, and sorting.
SynApp2 is a development tool that generates database-backed Web applications by processing your MySQL or Oracle schema definition and producing the Web pages used to manage your data. It does more than an admin tool or file manager by considering table relations as a cohesive whole that drives the generation of a complete application that smoothly integrates your entire database design, complete with PDF reports. It is open, compact, efficient, and compatible with the tools and technologies you’re using now.
The Dextop application framework allows you to create Rich Internet Applications based on .NET/Mono and Sencha Ext JS. It has proven to be useful for online business applications. It features a desktop-like Ext JS frontend, simplified client-server communication, a stateful programming model, real-time updates and notifications from the server, automatic column model generation, automatic store model generation, and automatic form generation.
