Gearmand is the job server component of Gearman. Gearman provides a generic framework to farm out work to other machines, dispatching function calls to machines that are better suited to do work, to do work in parallel, to balance the load of processing, or to call functions between languages.
nessus-xmlrpc is a Ruby library for the Nessus XML-RPC interface. You can use it to start, stop, pause, and resume scans. It lets you watch progress and status of scans, download reports, etc. It comes with an example command line program that shows how easy it is to interact with the Nessus scanner.
Agnos is a cross-language, cross-platform, lightweight RPC framework with support for passing objects by value or by reference. Agnos is meant to allow programs written in different languages to easily interoperate, by providing the needed bindings (glue-code) and hiding all the details from the programmer. The project essentially serves the same purpose as existing technologies like SOAP, WSDL, CORBA, and others, but takes a minimalistic approach to the issue at hand. Unlike the aforementioned technologies, which tend to require integration with Web servers, using verbose XML-based protocols on top of textual transports (HTTP), often also requiring complex topologies (such as name servers for registering objects, etc.). Agnos is designed to be simple, efficient, and straightforward, allowing for direct communication between two ends using a compact binary protocol.
Collax Business Server is an all-in-one Linux server for small- and medium-sized businesses. It delivers all the important network services within a heterogeneous business environment for communication, infrastructure, compliance, groupware, and storage, all in a reliable and secure way which is easy to manage. It also provides essential security functions such as firewalling and virus and spam filtering, to protect against hacker attacks, viruses, and unsolicited email messages.
RMI WebSocket provides a library for remote method invocations between a browser and a Jetty Web Server using the HTML5 WebSocket. The idea is to enable tight method-level integration between the user interface and the server so that patterns such as MVP (Model-View-Presenter) can be applied in a Web environment. The method-level communications between the browser code and the server code allows the developer to think about the Web page and server-side components as objects in a UML world. Details such as the over-the-wire protocols in WebSockets are abstracted away in the process.
