RoboZombie allows easy integration with remote services by allowing you to replicate an endpoint contract and generate a proxy to access it. Contracts can be very flexible in terms of the resources they access. These could be vary from static HTML content or an RRS feed, to a RESTful web service endpoint. Each endpoint contract is specified on a single interface using annotations to provide the communication metadata. It is then wired into your code via an annotation, where it is created, cached, and injected at runtime.
Jmx4Perl provides an alternate way of accessing Java JEE Server management interfaces that are based on JMX (Java Management Extensions). It is an agent-based approach where a small Web application deployed on the application server provides HTTP/JSON-based access to JMX MBeans registered within the application server. It is set up from a handful of Perl modules, which can be integrated seamlessly in your own programs. It also includes a Nagios plugin, check_jmx4perl, a jmx4perl command line tool for remote JMX queries and operations, and a readline-based JMX shell j4psh, with context sensitive command completion and syntax highlighting.
HTSQL a high-level query language and Web service gateway for relational databases. It comes with source code and is royalty free for any use with open source database systems such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, etc. Licenses for using HTSQL in conjunction with proprietary databases such as Microsoft SQL and Oracle can be purchased.
Guzzle is a RESTful Web service client framework that enables PHP developers to quickly build testable Web service clients utilizing HTTP/1.1 best practices. It gives you access to advanced features like persistent HTTP connections, parallel requests, exponential backoff, over the wire logging, MD5 validation, cookie jars, and a caching forward proxy.
Osgish is a command line shell for OSGi. It is based on the Readline Library, Jmx4Perl, as the OSGi backend, and Aries JMX as the OSGi Management layer. It is different than other OSGi shells, as it is implemented in pure Perl and provides unique features like wildcard support, context-sensitive command line completion, syntax highlighting, bulk lifecycle operations, advanced query facilities, and remoting via HTTP. It uses jmx4perl and Aries JMX OSGi bundles for accessing the OSGi container remotely.
SerfJ provides a very easy way of developing Java REST Web applications. It helps you to develop your application over an elegant MVC architecture, giving more importance to convention than configuration. This means, for example, you will not need configuration files or annotations in order to specify which view serves a controller's method. However, SerfJ is very flexible, so if you want to jump over those conventions, you can configure the behavior of your applications as you like. The framework tries to meet the JSR 311 specification, but it doesn't follow every point of the specification, because the purpose is to have a very intuitive library, and some some aspects of the specification are out of the scope of SerfJ.
iBeans aims to make integration for Web applications much easier than it is today. It does this by focusing on simplicity and task-based integration and avoids technical jargon and new concepts wherever possible. It offers easy to use integration for doing things like publishing and subscribing to JMS queues and topics, sending and receiving email, polling resources such as databases and ATOM feeds, task scheduling, creating HTTP/Rest services, consuming external services such as Amazon EC2 and S3, Twitter, Flickr, Google, and much more. It proves a Tomcat distribution that drops straight into Tomcat, with no need to mess with your project dependencies, and works with developer tooling for Tomcat or Tcat. It has a very simple API using annotations. This means iBeans can be plugged into your existing Web apps easily. It includes easy unit and mock testing using JUnit. IBeans Central offers a great place to discover and try new iBeans in your applications.
