The GRASP Project has created an algorithmic-level graphical representation for software called the Control Structure Diagram (CSD). The CSD was created to improve the comprehension efficiency of Ada source code and, as a result, improve software reliability and reduce software costs. Since its creation, the CSD has been expanded and adapted to include other languages. GRASP provides the capability to generate CSD's from Ada 95, C, C++, Java, and VHDL source code in both a reverse and forward engineering mode with a level of flexibility suitable for professional application. GRASP has been integrated with the GNU family of compilers for Ada (GNAT) and C (gcc), and Sun's javac compiler for Java. Use of GRASP is not restricted to these compilers, however. This has resulted in a comprehensive graphically-based development environment for these languages. The user may view, edit, print, and compile source code as CSDs with no discernible addition to storage or computational overhead.
Kelly is a JBuilder 4 & 5 plugin that makes it easy to deploy EJBs to JOnAS 2.x. Kelly can be installed and run with other JBuilder 4 & 5 plugins such as BEA WebLogicServer 5.1, BEA WLS 6, IBM WebSphere 3.5, Borland AS 4.5, etc. Kelly provides services to Jbuilder 4 & 5 java developers such as the ability to create any XML deployment files required by JOnAS 2.x, hot loading and unloading of any EJBs to JOnAS (only for JBuilder 5), control of JOnAS start-up from JBuilder 4 & 5, and the supply of JOnAS word dictionaries to JBuilder 4 & 5 in order to enhance the JBuilder 4 & 5 text completion services.
ATG Dynamo integration for JBuilder is a JBuilder 5 plugin that makes it easy to deploy J2EE applications to the ATG Dynamo Application Server version 5.1 (DAS). It can be installed and run with the other JBuilder 5 plugins such as BEA WebLogicServer 5.1, BEA WLS 6, IBM WebSphere 3.5, Borland AS 4.5, etc.
Ch is an embeddable C/C++ interpreter for cross-platform scripting, shell programming, 2D/3D plotting, numerical computing, and embedded scripting. It is the simplest solution to numerical computing and visualization in the domain of C/C++. It supports the ISO 1990 C Standard (C90), major features in C99 (complex numbers, variable length arrays or VLAs, type generic functions, long long data type, etc), classes in C++, and extensions to the C language like nested functions, string types, etc. It can be embedded in other applications and hardware and used as a scripting language. C/C++ code is interpreted directly with no compilation to intermediate code. It supports Linux, Windows, MacOS X, Solaris, HP-UX, and FreeBSD.
BMDFM allows one to run an application in parallel on shared memory multiprocessor (SMP) systems. BMDFM automatically identifies and executes all parallelism of unparallelized programs due to the static and mainly dynamic scheduling of the data flow instruction sequences derived from the formerly sequential program. BMDFM's dynamic scheduling subsystem performs an efficient SMP emulation of Tagged-Token DFM to provide the transparent dataflow semantics for the applications. No directives for parallel execution are required. No highly knowledgeable parallel programmers are required.
4tH is a Forth compiler with a little difference. Instead of the standard Forth engine it features a conventional compiler. 4tH is a very small compiler that can create bytecode, C-embeddable bytecode, standalone executables, but also works fine as a scripting language. It supports about 95% of the ANS Forth CORE wordset and features conditional compilation, pipes, files, assertions, forward declarations, enumerations, structures, suspended execution, recursion, include files, etc. It comes with an RPN calculator, line editor, preprocessor, compiler, decompiler, C-source generator, a virtual machine, and a multitasking environment.
Open Watcom consists of the famous Watcom C++ and WATFOR compilers -- now open source. Open Watcom is mainly used for developing embedded, DOS, and ncurses software. Open Watcom includes the C/C++/Fortran IDE from Watcom for DOS and a full set of command-line tools for compilation, including the superb Watcom debugger. Open Watcom emits easy-to-understand errors and warnings when things go wrong. Open Watcom generates small statically linked binaries for Linux, Win32, Win16, OS/2, QNX, NetWare, and MS-DOS real and protected mode, among other targets. However, Open Watcom is still only beta-quality on Linux and BSD. The two most serious issues are imperfect C++ template support and an inability to dynamically link with shared libraries built by GCC. Also, Open Watcom is released under the Sybase Open Watcom Public License, which is considered non-free by most Debian Linux developers. NOTE: Open Watcom binaries for Linux are not available anywhere. You must build it yourself. 1.5 has known build issues on Linux; use version 1.4 or the current daily build instead.
Excelsior JET is a Java VM enhanced with an Ahead-Of-Time (AOT) compiler and deployment toolkit. It is certified Java Compatible on Windows and Linux on Intel x86 hardware. The 64-bit version is in the works. Excelsior JET Optimizer transforms your classes and JARs into high-performance binary executables. Excelsior JET Runtime includes a licensed Sun implementation of the Java API and Excelsior's proprietary JVM, which is responsible for Java memory management, threading, synchronization, security, and JIT compilation of classes that could not be precompiled. The Excelsior JET Installation Toolkit makes it possible to prepare your optimized application for deployment to end-user systems.
