CGI::Application is a Perl framework intended to make it easier to create sophisticated, reusable Web-based applications. This module implements a methodology which can make Web software easier to design, easier to document, easier to write, and easier to evolve. CGI::Application builds on standard, non-proprietary technologies and techniques, such as the Common Gateway Interface and Lincoln D. Stein's excellent CGI.pm module. CGI::Application judiciously avoids employing technologies and techniques which would bind a developer to any one set of tools, operating system, or Web server.
The Event monitor project is an approach to network management based on message passing between manager and managed nodes. It's based on a client/server platform, where the server is the manager node, and all clients are managed nodes. This tool is under development, but has lots of features implemented, like a graphical console, message passing layer, one disk monitor and clients for sending messages (both API and binary forms are provided).
The Internet Document And Report Server (IDRS) is a full Web development platform. All pages are built using an XML like dialect called the Reporting Markup Language (RML), can be generated using data from any JDBC complient database, and mostly require no programming logic. For reports that do require programming logic, RML pages can also use external Java classes and embedded JPython and BeanShell scripts for a higher level of control. Features of the IDRS include user-based security, data connection pooling for use by both the central IDRS system and by individual reports, and multiple databases to be used for each report and JSP.
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.
JIGS (Java Interface for GnuStep) allows Java programmers to use the GNUstep libraries from Java, but it is more than a set of bindings for GNUstep from Java: it takes advantage of the fact that Objective-C and Java are very similar languages to make it possible to use Objective-C classes from Java using exactly the same API (and vice versa). Moreover, JIGS can generate automatically wrappers for your own Objective-C GNUstep libraries.
Libslack is a library of general utilities designed to make UNIX/C programming a bit easier on the eye. It was originally implemented as part of the daemon program. It's a small library with lots of functionality, is accurately documented and was thoroughly tested. Good library naming conventions are not rigorously observed on the principle that common operations should always be easy to write and code should always be easy to read.
