Velocity is a Java-based template engine. It permits anyone to use the simple yet powerful template language to reference objects defined in Java code. When Velocity is used for Web development, Web designers can work in parallel with Java programmers to develop Web sites according to the Model-View-Controller (MVC) model, meaning that Web page designers can focus solely on creating a site that looks good, and programmers can focus solely on writing top-notch code. Velocity separates Java code from the Web pages, making the web site more maintainable over the long run and providing a viable alternative to Java Server Pages (JSPs) or PHP. Velocity also provides template services for the Turbine Web application framework, making a template service that allows Web applications to be developed according to a true MVC model.
Xerces2 is the next generation Apache Xerces-J XML parser. This version of Xerces-J defines the Xerces Native Interface (XNI), and provides a complete, standards compliant reference implementation using XNI. The parser was completely re-designed and re-implemented to be simpler and more modular. To help contribute to this project, visit the Apache Xerces Project Webpage (http://xerces.apache.org) and join the email@example.com mailing list.
The POI project contains several components for dealing with popular OLE 2 formats in Java. POIFS is a pure Java implementation of the OLE 2 Compound document format. HSSF is a pure Java implementation of Excel 97-2003 XLS file format based on POIFS. HSSF Serializer is a pure Java serializer for Cocoon 2 that uses the Gnumeric XML format to output XLS. Full documentation of the POIFS file format is included. It is useful if you wish to output reports in the Excel file format, or if you have existing XML documents that you need to get into Excel. HSLF provides initial support for PowerPoint 97-2003 and HWPF provides limited support for Word 97-2003. POIFS can be used to read any OLE2 stream.
Babeldoc is a framework and set of applications to process documents for business-to-business and other Internet/integration applications. It is primarily intended for text documents, especially XML, but supports a wide range of operations and data types. It has a sophisticated journaling system that supports replaying and reprocessing. Babeldoc is pipeline based and supports numerous ways to combine the pipeline stages in a dynamically reconfigurable fashion. It has a GUI and a Web-based console for document processing and monitoring, and comes with tools for the tranformation of flatfile data to XML, archival, and cryptography. Additionally it is able to scan various data sources based on sophisticated constraints.
JXV (Java XML View) is a library which allows for Java objects to be given "XML Views", and for those views to be read back into objects. It supports both SAX and DOM output, and can read XML input from any SAX-compliant parser. Resulting DOM trees are dynamic, and reflect changes made to the object model even after they were created. It fully supports namespaces in its XML views, and can correctly parse and read XML content with namespaces. It also uses a pluggable architecture which allows XML view factories to be configured and loaded at runtime.
DataStore is a Java-based document repository server for storing, querying, and fetching unstructured text or semi-structured XML based documents. The documents are stored in conventional relational databases, leveraging their advantages and reliability. It is built on top of the Avalon Phoenix framework and is managed through a BEEP or XML-RPC interface using a subset of the SEP protocol.
b-frame is a framework for rapid J2EE development. It is based on the assumption that it is possible to create business (i.e. transactional client server) applications just from knowing their structure. It defines sets of XML tags for describing databases and applications operating on these databases (application layer) and template implementations (implementation layer), respectively. It provides XSLT-stylesheets (core layer) for merging the user provided application layer and the template layer into real applications. By default, it comes with a J2EE implementation layer.
