Net::Z3950::SimpleServer is a Perl module which implements the server side of the Z39.50 (information retrieval) protocol. It hides the complexity of network exchanges, packet serialization, and session handling. You are required only to implement simple callbacks to support searching and record retrieval. It is the basis of the "Zoogle" project, which is a Z39.50 gateway to the Google web index.
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.
DBIx::Browse handles the browsing of relational tables with a human-like interface via the Web. It transparently translates SELECTs, UPDATEs, DELETEs, and INSERTs from the desired "human view" to the values needed for the table. This is the case when you have related tables (1 to n) where the detail table has a reference (FOREIGN KEY) to a generic table (e.g., Customers and Bills) with some index (typically an integer).
AppWrap is a content management system for enterprises. It is built on a template engine that includes a framework for building SQL tables and allowing users to populate and maintain these tables. Reports using data from these tables can be easily created using another template. It is ideal for quickly Webifying Excel and Word files shared among workgroups and rapidly providing advanced data management and presentation capabilities. It is intended for managing mildly dynamic data without the labor of hand-coding and managing multiple CGI forms and templates, or the expense of CRM systems.
UnixODBC.pm provides Perl programs with a subset of the X/Open ODBC API for use with EasySoft's unixODBC DBMS libraries, as well as a peer to peer API for querying ODBC data sources on networked systems. In addition, it provides peer client and server scripts and configuration files, sample clients that perform ODBC queries on local and networked systems, result set output for RSS feeds, and two multi-host data managers: one that uses Apache and CGI to provide a Web browser interface, and another that uses Perl/Tk.
CodeKit is an interface to a universal database code table. It takes all of the programming work out of maintaining multiple database code definition sets. A single code administration page lets you define new virtual code tables and enter all codes and their descriptions. Perl and PHP classes retrieve the code descriptions and automatically generate HTML code selection elements.
BabelKit is an interface to a universal multilingual database code table. It takes all of the programming work out of maintaining multiple database code definition sets in multiple languages. The code administration and translation page lets developers define new virtual code tables, new languages, enter all codes and their descriptions, and then translate them into all languages of interest. Perl and PHP classes retrieve the code descriptions and automatically generate HTML code selection elements in the user's language. This makes internationalization and localization of Web sites and database interfaces much easier.
Cafeterra is a message queue-based EAI project with a Web user interface for designing, processing, and monitoring inter-application data flows. Supported connectors are based on an RDBMS, flat files (CSV, fixed length record, XML, HL7, HTML, etc.), LDAP, and SOAP, with others planned. The main features are message tracking and archival, joining different connectors, an internal scheduler, and raising the flow on events.
OOPS is a system for making Perl objects transparently persistent. It handles deeply nested and cross-linked objects, and even object hierarchies that are too large to fit in memory and (with a hint) individual hash tables that are too large for memory. Objects are demand-loaded into memory as they are accessed, and all changes are saved with a single commit().
