XINS is a technology used to define, create, and invoke remote APIs. XINS is specification-oriented. When API specifications are written (in XML), XINS will transform them to HTML-based documentation and Java code for both the client-side and the server-side. The communication is based on HTTP. XINS competes with the complex SOAP technology. Main design goals include simplicity, scalability, and testability. XINS is not only a specification technology, but also an application development framework. It offers transaction logging, unique log documentation, and active code generation.
PSX is a PHP framework for creating RESTful APIs. It helps you to build clean URLs serving Web standard formats like JSON, XML, Atom, and RSS. It includes a handler system that abstracts away SQL queries from domain logic, a routing system that executes correct controller method for the location of the controller and the method annotation, and a flexible data system that converts database records into formats like JSON, XML, Atom, and RSS. A lightweight DI container handles dependencies. The controller supports request and response filters that can modify the HTTP request or response, and filters are provided for Basic and Oauth authentication.
jQuery-JSONP is a compact (1.6kB minified), yet feature-packed, alternative solution to jQuery's implementation of JSONP. jQuery-JSONP features error recovery in case of network failure or an ill-formed JSON response, precise control over callback naming and how it is transmitted in the URL, multiple requests with the same callback name running concurrently, two caching mechanisms (browser-based and page based), the possibility to manually abort the request just like any other AJAX request, and a timeout mechanism. jQuery-JSONP has been tested and runs within all major browsers.
