Corn Gate is designed to simplify service definitions and implementations in Java. It comes with several handy out-of-the-box functionalities, including security, registry, Spring and EJB integration, filters, shared data stages, client contexts, etc. JSON-RPC/HTTP and REST/HTTP protocols are supported. Remote service calls can be done through various client technologies. Since Gate supports standard HTTP communication mechanisms, almost any client technology can access services remotely.
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.

wwwhisper is a privacy-friendly system which simplifies sharing Web resources which are not intended for everyone. It allows you to specify which HTTP resources can be accessed by owners of which email addresses. Mozilla Persona is used to prove that a visitor owns an allowed email address. No site-specific password is needed. The Persona UI makes the authentication process really smooth. wwwhisper is application-independent and can be used for any Web resources.
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.
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.
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.
