Advanced Website Creator is a Web development environment. Created websites use an MVC framework written in PHP 5 and a simple database abstraction layer. At present the database layer supports MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite as backends. All PHP classes are auto-loaded, so there is no need to include() or require() files manually. Search engine friendly URLs are supported via mod_rewrite. The program has wizards for quick generation of forms and CRUD pages.
AntFlow builds upon Apache Ant to provide a new approach to simplifying system automation that uses pipelines of hot folders chained together to perform a given task. Using XML, it associates an automated task such as data transfer, encryption, or XML processing with a directory on the local system. Whenever a file is copied or written into the hot folder, the associated task is executed and the file is moved to the next hot folder in the pipeline for further processing.
Rundoc is an Ant task designed to help with the single- sourcing of program documentation. This task replaces special commands embedded within text files with their output in a specified format. Currently, only Docbook format is supported. It was written to keep sample code output in program documentation synchronized with the actual output of the current code, by running the referenced code when the documentation is built.
Free Java is a development environment designed to help beginners write Java programs. Its editor includes syntax highlighting and an undo/redo function. It features a structure panel and a file browser. Compiling and running a program can be done with the push of a single button, and compiler errors are shown clearly. There is also a virtual console to show a program's console output. Free Java is based on J2SDK 1.3.
The sourcecode XML metadata extraction tools are intended to be used for extracting and transforming XML-like markup embedded in source code comments into syntactically correct external entities or well-formed XML files. This can be used for JavaDoc-like code annotation, providing structured comments, or even embedding metadata used by the build process or configuration management tools.
