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.
libbgrab is a video4linux grabbing library to facilitate use of framegrabber cards and webcams through a few function calls. To implement constant throughput and to avoid frame loss delays, triple buffering is used through local buffer copying in a separate grabbing thread. The many demo and utility programs included can display live video to X, convert live video to ASCII, smoothly zoom live-video (using Glide), do some image processing (using MMX), and provide a stand-alone webcam image server.
The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to develop an all-in-one Internet application suite. It contains an Internet browser, email and newsgroup client with an included Web feed reader, HTML editor, IRC chat, and Web development tools, and is sure to appeal to advanced users, Web developers, and corporate users. It uses much of the Mozilla source code powering such successful siblings as Firefox, Thunderbird, Camino, Sunbird, and Miro.
PerLDAP is a set of modules written in Perl and C that allow developers to leverage their existing Perl knowledge to easily access and manage LDAP-enabled directories. PerLDAP makes it very easy to search, add, delete, and modify directory entries. For example, Perl developers can easily build web applications to access information stored in a directory or create directory sync tools between directories and other services. PerLDAP is OpenSource, part of the Mozilla project.
Pike is an interpreted, object-oriented, dynamic programming language with a syntax similar to C. It includes a powerful modules system that, for instance, has image manipulation, database connectivity and advanced cryptography. It is simple to learn, does not require long compilation passes and has powerful built-in data types allowing simple and fast data manipulation.
SMTP::Server is a complete RFC 821 compliant mail server, written entirely in Perl. It's extremely extensible, and can easily be adapted to do things like SPAM/RBL filtering, and it's portable to all major platforms, including Win32. The SMTP::Server architecture was written to be very flexible, and its true power comes from the ability to extend/customize its functionality with plugin modules, or Perl code.
The State Threads is a small application library which provides a foundation for writing fast and highly scalable Internet applications (such as Web servers, proxy servers, mail transfer agents, etc.) on UNIX-like platforms. It offers a threading API for structuring a network application as an event-driven state machine.
The Extended Universal Resource Locator library provides a complete virtualization of file-like objects. How data is stored is completely transparent to the client, since the library is meant to replace java.io.File. It provides implementations for handling local files, Jar/Zip archives, and XML documents. (Implementations for CVS and FTP are available seperately.) Other storage providers can be written and plugged in. It also provides a merged filesystem implementation that allows multiple hierarchies to appear as one and to override each other in a controlled way. Other features include notification of changes to files, and support for attaching (dynamically updatable) actions to file objects.
