DBPrism is an open source framework to generate dynamic XML from a database. It connects Oracle databases with Apache Cocoon, providing a high performance DBGenerator with functionality such as parallel content aggregation and ESI cache protocol. It also includes a powerlful database oriented CMS built on top of Apache Cocoon2 and DBPrism.
Orac is a GUI tool for Database Administrators written in Perl, Tk, and DBI. It organizes many useful DBA scripts into a nice graphical interface, for collecting statistics on your database, or diagnosing problems. It currently supports Oracle, Sybase, and Informix. Richard Sutherland's DDL::Oracle Perl module has been integrated with the current version for the Oracle side of things, greatly improving the Oracle developer options on the program.
dbMan is a complex SQL monitor for common database systems (PgSQL, Oracle, MySQL etc.). It's based on Perl and DBI interfaces. Features include a command history buffer, tab completion, editing Oracle objects, simultaneous connections, SQL help, importing and exporting of tables, Oracle explain plan, and more. dbMan is made as a simple kernel and many extension modules, and you can make your modules with a simple HOWTO.
The goal of the X-itools project is to propose an alternative to products like Exchange or Lotus Notes/Domino. They are composed of several modules, and this project has been under development for several years. Modules include a shared public and private agenda, a flow-chart, task, and post-it manager, a visitors and associated badges manager, a password and history manager (with the ability to encrypt things other than passwords), a holiday manager (to manage public vacation days, illness periods, absence periods according to country profiles), a shared public and private address book, an incoming and outgoing phone calls manager, and a global management module.
ChkDB is rule-based data checking software for Oracle, plus files that define rule-sets and data domains (tables/views to be checked). The software is a PL/SQL package and some SQL scripts. There is currently no GUI front-end. For oil and gas data, there are domains and rulesets for well-header, drill-stem-test, and seismic-inventory data.
PL/FLOW is a workflow engine for Oracle9i written in PL/SQL. It is fast and it can run in a replicated environment with multiple master databases. The naming, process definition, and API are inspired by interface 1 and 2 as published by the WfMC. The ERD design was made using Designer 9i. PL/FLOW is lightweight because Oracle database functionality is used for storage, indexing, and logic. Workflow transactions typically take 5-10 milliseconds to complete.
