DataManager is a library that provides a shared memory pool to allocate buffers from. It includes the necessary things to build servers which regulary produce data and provide them via ringbuffers to clients. It includes the common framework to have locking and various access methods. The use generally boils down to simple get()s and put()s. This project is no longer under active development.
PyORBit is a Python binding for the ORBit2 CORBA ORB. It was developped to suit the needs of the bonobo bindings in GNOME-Python, but is usable for other purposes as well. It aims to follow the standard Python language mapping for CORBA. It can generate stubs at runtime from typelibs, IDL files, or by introspecting remote objects using ORBit2's IModule typelib capabilities.
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.
xmlrpc-c is a programming library for writing an XML-RPC server or client in C or C++. XML-RPC is a standard network protocol to allow a client program to make a simple remote procedure call (RPC) type request of a server. It's like SOAP or CORBA, but much simpler. This library speaks the same XML-RPC as similar libraries for lots of other programming languages, with most of the popular extensions. The client library uses either w3c libwww or Curl for HTTP. The server library contains a complete lightweight HTTP (Web) server and also facilities for running with CGI under any Web server.
XPLC is a component system that tries to enable the use of components in a pervasive way. It aims to be easy to use, have low speed and size overhead, and be language and platform neutral. Basically, the idea is to leave no excuse for an application not to be component-enabled (being a component and/or using components).
The Pandora Engine SDK is an object-oriented development toolkit that is specially designed for multi-platform use. It allows you to create truly object-oriented programs without being restricted to object-oriented languages like C++. The environment is fully self-contained, which allows for easier porting, and the inclusion of a commercially developed VESA graphics drivers means that you can create full-screen applications that don't require X11. It is intended for creating both applications and games, and is also required to write programs for Athene, a multi-platform operating system that is based on the engine.
The Objex Project (like the GNU Project) aims to develop a complete operating system composed of free and open source software. In contrast to the GNU Project, it aims to build a modern system that brings together all the recent advances in computer science, instead of a Unix-like system. "A complete system" means that it will include the kernel, a full suite of developers tools, user utilities, and a graphical user interface. It is based on OSKit, a framework and a set of utilities, drivers, and program code intended for operating system creation.
Encdec encodes and decodes C objects such as integers, IEEE754 float and double values, times, and internationalized strings to and from popular binary formats and a wide variety of character encodings as they might appear in various file formats or network messages. It is compiled directly against the libiconv sources.
