SAP has three different types of tables: Pooled tables, direct tables, and clusters. Pooled tables pool together several smaller lists and lookups into one table. The format of the pooled tables is basically Cobol Record structure. SAP Pooled Table Viewer uses the SAP data dictionary to create Oracle views that allow easy querying of the SAP data. This makes it easier to integrate with SAP systems where you can use database connectivity and bypass the need for ABAP.
Pool Table Viewer creates database views that allow access to pooled tables directly from Oracle. SAP stores lookup and reference tables in a format known as pooled tables. These keep the data stored in a COBOL/ABAP record format, and the data is not normally readable from Oracle directly. This viewer can be useful for integration software, where there would not be a requirement to write ABAP interface code to access the SAP data. This works with any SAP R3 system with an Oracle database backend.
SYMPLiK EXZELLENZ is a program to manipulate table data in Oracle database by using a Microsoft Excel file (xls or xlsx format). Unlike Oracle WebADI, More4Apps, or other Excel-driven solutions, this program does not use Office VBA (macros) to process the data. It is a pure Java solution incorporated with Apache POI and the Oracle JDBC driver to download, upload, insert, update, and delete data from Oracle database tables. It is Linux-friendly for Open Office users as long as the spreadsheet is in Excel formats.
Osmius is a monitoring tool for everything connected to a network. It features very high performance. It allows you to create and integrate business services, SLAs, and ITIL processes such as availability management and capacity planning. Osmius offers real GIS capabilities, BI, and data mining to keep track of SLA requirements.
Invenio (formerly CDSware) is a suite of applications that provides the framework and tools for building and managing an autonomous digital library server. It complies with the Open Archives Initiative metadata harvesting protocol (OAI-PMH) and uses MARC 21 as its underlying bibliographic standard. Its flexibility and performance make it a comprehensive solution for the management of document repositories of moderate to large size.
GNU EPrints is a solution for sites wanting to set up archives. By default it is configured to be an archive of research publications but can be easily altered. It is scalable and robust; all metadata is stored in UTF-8 rather than ASCII, and all "phrases" the system uses in user interaction are stored in an XML file for easy editing or translating. The system is built around Apache, mod_perl, and MySQL. Submissions are made via the Web and not entered into the main archive until approved by an editor.
TOra is a Toolkit for Oracle that helps the DBA or developer of a database application. It features an SQL worksheet with PL/SQL block parsing, a PL/SQL debugger and editor with syntax highlighting, a Schema browser, Unicode support, printing, and a full suite of DBA management tools.
Orac is a GUI tool for Database Administrators written in Perl, Tk, and DBI. It organizes many useful DBA scripts into a nice graphical interface, for collecting statistics on your database, or diagnosing problems. It currently supports Oracle, Sybase, and Informix. Richard Sutherland's DDL::Oracle Perl module has been integrated with the current version for the Oracle side of things, greatly improving the Oracle developer options on the program.
