Voyager extends .NET and/or Java server functionality to PDAs and smartphones. The flexible framework can also deploy mobile agents to analyze data, dynamically distribute knowledge, and create ad-hoc peer-2-peer networks when connectivity is limited. Originally developed by ObjectSpace in the 1990s, this edition enables developers to quickly design and test applications, but is for development purposes only.
Cadena is an Eclipse plugin that provides an integrated environment for building and modeling component-based systems (including CORBA CCM systems). It provides editors for defining component types, specifying component behavior, and creating and visualizing component assemblies. It also provides facilities for generating stub and skeleton source code for components, performing dependency analysis that traces inter/inta-component event and data dependencies, executing the developed systems, and more.
TIDorb Java is a CORBA 2.6 ORB with a high level of stability and performance. It fully implements the Java ORB core and portability APIs, Portable Object Adapter (POA), IIOP protocol (versions 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2), including bi-directional communications, the Dynamic Anys API, DII dynamic invocation interface, and DSI dynamic skeletons APIs, the static invocation API, OBV (object by value passing), and some CORBA messaging QoS policies, and it partially implements RealTime functionalities and Codecs.
TIDorb C++ is a CORBA 2.6 ORB with a high level of stability and performance. It fully implements Portable Object Adapter (POA), IIOP protocol (versions 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2), including bi-directional communications, MIOP protocol (IIOP over udp/multicast), ZIOP (zipped IIOP), SSLIOP (SSL over IIOP), CSIv2, the Dynamic Anys API, DII dynamic invocation interface, and DSI dynamic skeletons APIs, the static invocation API, OBV (object by value passing), and some CORBA messaging QoS policies, and it partially implements RealTime functionalities and Codecs.
TAO is a standards-compliant, real-time implementation of CORBA that provides efficient, predictable, and scalable quality of service (QoS) end-to-end. Unlike conventional implementations of CORBA, which are inefficient, unpredictable, non-scalable, and often non-portable, TAO applies the best software practices and patterns to automate the delivery of high-performance and real-time QoS to distributed applications.
XmlBlaster is XML based MOM (Message oriented Middleware) with a lot of features. It is a publish/subscribe and point-to-point MOM server which exchanges XML-encoded messages. Communication with the server is based on CORBA (using JacORB), RMI, XML-RPC, native socket, or a persistent HTTP plugin. Subscribers can use XPath expressions to filter the messages they wish to receive and add their own MIME-based filter plugins. C/C++, Java, Perl, Python, VisualBasic.net, C#, and PHP client demos are included in the xmlBlaster test suite, and Tcl and Python demo clients are scheduled. XmlBlaster also provides a browser callback framework, allowing browsers (Netscape, Mozilla, MSIE) to receive instant callbacks over a persistent http connection. A security plugin framework allows authentication/authorization in many ways. Currently there are LDAP- and passwd-based plugins available.
RMIIO is a library that makes it as simple as possible to stream large amounts of data using the RMI framework (or any RPC framework). The RMI framework makes it very easy to implement remote communication between Java programs, yet does not provide any ready solutions for sending large files without blowing out memory on the client or server. What you really want to do is stream data from the client to the server using a framework that does not really expose streaming. The RMIIO library provides some very powerful classes that enable a client to stream data to the server using only a few extra lines of code.
