The Noble Ape Simulation is a collection of a number of autonomous simulation components including a landscape simulation, biological simulation, weather simulation, sentient creature (Noble Ape) simulation, and a simple intelligent-agent scripting language (ApeScript). Noble Ape also contains a social simulation where the Noble Apes can be tracked in terms of social groups and also over many generations to explain social phenomenon to users looking to study this kind of interaction. It has been in development for more than a fifteen years.
libNUI is a hardware accelerated GUI framework that makes it possible to build rich multi-platform applications based on 3D rendered dynamic layouts. Interfaces are built as a composition of widgets and behaviors, and the framework handles positioning, resizing, anchoring, and texture stretching. Objects are connected with synchronous events and delegates for mono-threaded communication, or asynchronous notifications and message queues are used for multi-threaded applications. It also supports strings (including Unicode), paths, files, data streams, fonts, threads, critical sections, audio buffer rendering, and more.
Libzdb is a database library with thread-safe connection pooling. The library can connect transparently to multiple database systems. It has zero runtime configuration and connections are specified via a URL scheme. A modern object-oriented API is provided. Libzdb supports MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, and Oracle.
Web Based Inventory provides user-friendly management of inventory and sales. It features multi-store and multi-currency support, user friendly POS, inventory and sales charts, realtime inventory updates, translates to any language (localization), platform independence, PDF invoice and barcode generators, and highly-customizable user access. An online demo is available.
Web Based Restaurant POS is a user-friendly Point of Sale system for restaurants. It features touch screen optimizations (of course, it can be used with normal screens, too), magnetic card access (a waiter will slide a magnetic card through the card reader to log in), orders automatically printed in the production departments (kitchen, bar, etc.), advanced reports which can be filtered and sorted, graphical representation of reports, several access levels (administrator, manager, waiter, etc.), an easy-to-use recipe system (products contains several ingredients), and inventory updated in realtime based on product recipes. An online demo is available.
jMonkeyEngine is a game engine made for developers who want to create 3D games following modern technology standards. The framework is programmed entirely in Java, and aimed at wide accessibility and fast deployment to desktop, Web, and mobile platforms. It is not a visual “RPG Maker” or a drag-and-drop “FPS mod”. If you are comfortable writing Java code, you can rely on jMonkeyEngine as your next 3D game’s foundation.
