XINS is a technology used to define, create, and invoke remote APIs. XINS is specification-oriented. When API specifications are written (in XML), XINS will transform them to HTML-based documentation and Java code for both the client-side and the server-side. The communication is based on HTTP. XINS competes with the complex SOAP technology. Main design goals include simplicity, scalability, and testability. XINS is not only a specification technology, but also an application development framework. It offers transaction logging, unique log documentation, and active code generation.
jQuery-JSONP is a compact (1.6kB minified), yet feature-packed, alternative solution to jQuery's implementation of JSONP. jQuery-JSONP features error recovery in case of network failure or an ill-formed JSON response, precise control over callback naming and how it is transmitted in the URL, multiple requests with the same callback name running concurrently, two caching mechanisms (browser-based and page based), the possibility to manually abort the request just like any other AJAX request, and a timeout mechanism. jQuery-JSONP has been tested and runs within all major browsers.
YAJL (Yet Another JSON Library) is a small event-driven (SAX-style) JSON parser written in ANSI C, and a small validating JSON generator. It's highly portable, data representation independent, fast, generates verbose error messages including context of where the error occurs in the input text, can parse JSON data incrementally off a stream, and is tiny.
Jmx4Perl provides an alternate way of accessing Java JEE Server management interfaces that are based on JMX (Java Management Extensions). It is an agent-based approach where a small Web application deployed on the application server provides HTTP/JSON-based access to JMX MBeans registered within the application server. It is set up from a handful of Perl modules, which can be integrated seamlessly in your own programs. It also includes a Nagios plugin, check_jmx4perl, a jmx4perl command line tool for remote JMX queries and operations, and a readline-based JMX shell j4psh, with context sensitive command completion and syntax highlighting.
Clover is a Java code coverage analysis tool. Key features include per-test code coverage, test optimization (aka selective testing), interactive and historical HTML reporting, IDE integration with Eclipse, IntelliJ IDEA, RAD, and NetBeans. It also works with Ant, Maven, and other command line tools.
Uhura is a Web console for databases. It works with MySQL, PostgreSQL, and FirebirdSQL. It presents trees that let you browse databases, tables, columns, constraints, triggers, views, and procs. It has panels for history and fragments. Its editor features autocompletion and autoindenting. It is easy to install.
