Gantry is a robust Perl-based Web application framework for Apache/mod_perl, CGI, and Fast-CGI. Object-oriented design allows for a pragmatic, modular approach to URL dispatching. It supports MVC and initiates rapid development, offering an organized coding scheme for Web applications.
Grapple is designed to be a simple network layer, allowing the addition of multiuser features to an application for as little as a dozen lines of code. However, it also allows for more. It features simple client-server networking that keeps all clients aware of all other clients, passworded servers, and data transfer via TCP, UDP, or reliable UDP. Advanced features include network messaging via push, pull, or a combination, multiple methods of querying users, user groups for client bandwidth saving, network load reacting data transmission and retransmission, background pinging to monitor network states, server failover, and a fully functional lobby system.
Green Dome GNUstepWeb for Mac OS X provides a WebObjects 4.5-like environment for Mac OS X (with some support for WO5 additions). It is composed of modified versions of the standard GNUstepBaseAdditions, GDL2, and GNUstepWeb frameworks, built to run on top of Apple's Cocoa frameworks. The GNUstep frameworks have been built with Xcode as true Mac OS X frameworks. Thus, they may be used as any other framework under Mac OS X. Note that this is a standalone package that does not require or interoperate with a separate GNUstep installation/environment. It is not intended to provide a complete GNUstep environment, such as would be expected of a full GNUstep installation.
The IberAgents platform is a framework for component development in Java. It has facilities for Web service communication (SOAP), persistence to database or files, and interaction via the Web; thus providing an end-to-end solution for data management. It uses its own SOAP library, so it does not depend on Axis or Apache Soap.
Inq is a scripting language for client/server systems. The server provides transaction, persistence, concurrency, and events support. The client is presently desktop only, though Web clients are planned. Inq uses a generic node structure throughout and reification techniques to obviate boilerplate code, especially in the areas of persistence and MVC.
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.
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.
