CRest (Client REST) is a lightweight library that simplifies the integration of third party RESTful services into Java applications. CRest is mainly annotation-driven, allowing the developer to focus on the essential aspects of the integration of a REST service, such as the definition of the Java interface that maps the remote REST methods and the data model the interface will deal with. The rest is achieved by annotating a plain Java interface with the relevant information such as the service end-point, the desired timeouts, URL formats, etc. CRest will handle everything else, including HTTP request generation, auto marshalling of the response, and more.
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.
Django REST framework is a lightweight REST framework for Django that aims to make it easy to build well-connected, self-describing RESTful Web APIs. It creates self-documenting Web APIs that include a Django admin style frontend. It has a modular, flexible architecture using Django's class based views. API creation can be as simple as adding a couple of lines to urls.py.
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.
Azzyzt JEE Tools is a set of Eclipse plugins for creating a so-called "azzyzted" project, and for creating code from a model. Azzyzt uses Java JPA entities as a model, and from that model it creates an enterprise application, ready to be deployed in a Java EE 6 application server like GlassFish 3.1, ready to be accessed via CORBA, SOAP, and REST. Thus the generated application is a set of Web services, providing all that you need in a typical CRUD application. Generated enterprise applications have separate source folders for generated and developer-supplied content. You can add your own functionality to a well-engineered base project. Azzyzt JEE Tools is not about user interfaces. It is expected that the generated application is accessed by a RIA frontend or by a fat client.
WebMotion is a Web application development framework based on a REST architecture and the Java EE 6 standard. It features a presentation layer management using pages (JSP, HTML, etc.) and REST service exposition (e.g. XHR calls). It enables you to serialize service results into JSON or XML. The framework has deliberately limited capabilities, but it focuses on the ease of use. It leaves open the choice of persistence framework, dependency injection, and validation.
Elefant is a full-featured, but refreshingly simple CMS and PHP Web framework. It features an intuitive, streamlined admin interface, a tightly integrated WYSIWYG editor, dynamically embeddable content objects for building dynamic Web sites without touching code, and an extremely fast, secure, and flexible framework for add-ons and themes. The core CMS includes page editing, a blogging engine, site navigation, file and user management, automatic version control, a tool for translators and multilingual site management, and an in-browser theme/layout editor. It is also extensively documented and has a small but friendly and active developer community.
RestPose is a search engine. It is designed to take a set of documents and then, when given a query, to return ranked lists of documents which are a good match for that query. RestPose manages a set of internal indexes and provides an interface (over HTTP, in a fairly RESTful style, using JSON as the main transfer format) which allows documents to be submitted and removed from indexes, and which allows searches to be performed.
