The Information System Development Kit gives the developer a platform-independent method of creating Information Systems with data forms, SQL database access, database-browsing support, report generator and many other useful features. ISDK is now in a development stage and it is available only for the Linux operating system. The form module now works on text terminals using the ncurses library (not functional right now), and on the X-Window system using the GTK+ toolkit.
Webware for Python is a suite of Python packages and tools for developing object-oriented, Web-based applications. The suite uses well known design patterns and includes a fast Application Server, Servlets, Python Server Pages (PSP), Object-Relational Mapping, Task Scheduling, Session Management, and many other features. Webware is very modular and easily extended. It is well proven and platform-independent. It is compatible with multiple Web servers, database servers, and operating systems.
liblookdb is a C++ library that provides an interface to several common Database Management Systems. It enables the programmer to write application code that can be built and run unchanged on a variety of platforms and against several DBMSs. It is currently in use in production code on Win32, GNU/Linux, and Compaq Tru64 UNIX, and against Ingres II (and older versions), Oracle 8i, PostgreSQL, and ODBC (on Win32 only at present). An application can choose which DBMS interface layer to load at runtime.
Cameleon a Framework for developing reliable database applications in a technology independent and predominantly editorial way. User interfaces may be easily exchanged from Swing to HTML and vice versa, and databases may be exchanged in the same manner. The Swing variant framework is established. The HTML user interface is under construction but can be reviewed on the project Webpage ("Test sample application"). Cameleon's target users are programmers who manage midrange data volumes (from thousands to millions of database records) and who prefer simplicity and availability rather than animation. Business features such as security management and parameter administration are supported in the framework. The framework allows web developement without any knowledge of JSP, HTML, Servlets etc. Data input elements (and groups of them) may be used in Java Server Pages.
JWAA is a software framework for building dynamic Web applications as networks of first-class Java objects. XML is used for representing information normally coded as HTML. The XML files are automatically reloaded when they change. It has a "persistent forms" feature in which form data automatically persists in the database such that fields behave like pieces of paper that automatically preserve what's written on them. This default behavior is easily overridden. Invalid links are reported at XML load time via the browser, and are also recorded in log files.
sTeam provides a technical platform which allows groups of students, lecturers, and any other groups to construct and arrange their individual and cooperative learning and working space. It consists of an object-oriented server connected to a database, and Web, Java, and other (FTP, SMTP, IRC, etc.) clients. The server is event-driven and manages all user objects as well as the communication between the connected clients. Features that were different from most other cooperation tools is the self-organisation and self-administration by the members within the virtual environment.
The Scout Portal Toolkit (SPT) is a turnkey software package that allows groups or organizations who have collections of knowledge or resources they want to share via the Web to put that collection online without a big investment in technical resources. It includes keyword and fielded search engines, a recommender system, a metadata editor, user agents (push technology to notify users of new resources), forums (bulletin boards), resource quality ratings, resource annotations by users, and support for multiple dynamic user interfaces, selectable on a per-user basis.
Ice is a modern alternative to object middleware such as CORBA or COM/DCOM/COM+. It is easy to learn, yet provides a powerful network infrastructure for demanding technical applications. It features an object-oriented specification language, easy to use C++ and Java mappings, a highly efficient protocol (including protocol compression), asynchronous method invocation and dispatch, dynamic transport plug-ins, TCP/IP and UDP/IP support, SSL-based security, a firewall solution, and much more.
