KeyAccess is a light-weight object-relational mapping (ORM) tool for Java, using existing databases as the starting point to generate a domain model. Its main goal is to reduce and sometimes eliminate manual updating between your domain object model and the underlying databases, while still being able to use arbitrarily complex SQL queries. In addition, KeyAccess doesn’t mandate a special architecture or framework – it will work in any application using JDBC.
BoneCP is a Java JDBC connection pool implementation that is tuned for high performance by minimizing lock contention to give greater throughput for your applications. It currently beats all known connection pools, including C3P0 and DBCP, as shown on the benchmark section on the site.
once:radix is an integrated development environment (IDE) that operates entirely within a Web browser. once:radix supports two methods of connecting to the server. Most interest is focused on its Rich Internet Application (RIA) environment. This comes with a suite of five RIAs that perform specific roles: logging on or off, context-sensitive help, database administration, IDE, and client. In addition, the once:secureserver (oSS) can respond to commands from session-managed external Web servers.
The Generic Repository (grepo) is a framework for Java which allows you to access (database) repositories in a generic and consistent manner. Using grepo, it is generally no longer required to provide all the boilerplate code which is necessary in order to access (database) repositories from Java. All you have to do is write appropriate database code (queries, procedures, functions, etc.), an appropriately annotated Java interface, and very little Spring configuration.
mysql-diff is a commandline database structure comparator. It compares the structure of two databases. It currently works with MySQL. A database can be specified as an SQL script or as an URL to a running database. So the tool can compare two scripts, two live databases, or a database and a script. The tool outputs SQL DDL script that can be used to convert one schema to another.
BlackRay is a relational database system designed to offer performance features commonly associated with search engines. It offers SQL support and sophisticated operational and management features. Load-balancing and operational stability by means of N+1 redundance are included. BlackRay is called a "Data Engine" since it combines traditional, relational database features and SQL with the power and flexibility of search engines. It is a true hybrid, offering transaction support, data-versioned snapshots, and sophisticated function-based indices. Wildcards, phonetic, and fuzzy logic searches are supported, as well. BlackRay supports a subset of the SQL92 standard and provides JDBC/ODBC/native driver options via the PostgreSQL protocol, in addition to an API based query option. The project is released under the GPLv2, with some drivers available under BSD-style licenses. Commercial support contracts are available as well.
lib4d_sql is a C library that provides the required functions (connect, prepare, execute, etc.) for writing an SQL client for 4D databases. It uses the public 4D SQL protocol, which is supported by 4D products since version 11. It is already used by the PDO_4D Open Source project, and it might be used to provide others drivers for JDBC, ADO, or ActiveRecord.
