BlackRay is a relational database system designed to offer performance features commonly associated with search engines. It offers SQL support and sophisticated operational and management features. Load-balancing and operational stability by means of N+1 redundance are included. BlackRay is called a "Data Engine" since it combines traditional, relational database features and SQL with the power and flexibility of search engines. It is a true hybrid, offering transaction support, data-versioned snapshots, and sophisticated function-based indices. Wildcards, phonetic, and fuzzy logic searches are supported, as well. BlackRay supports a subset of the SQL92 standard and provides JDBC/ODBC/native driver options via the PostgreSQL protocol, in addition to an API based query option. The project is released under the GPLv2, with some drivers available under BSD-style licenses. Commercial support contracts are available as well.
email@Scanner is an application that parses email from either an email server, email files, or one of several Macintosh email clients, selecting only those email that satisfy given criteria. Data may be extracted from anywhere within the selected email and further refined via data filters and scripts and then used to update a FileMaker or ODBC database. An optional outgoing email may be sent, created with data from the email and/or the associated database record.
