CorporateTime is a proprietary calendar server system originally produced by Steltor and, more recently, Oracle. Ruby/CorporateTime is a Ruby language extension that serves as an interface to the CorporateTime Calendar API (CAPI). Its purpose is to allow interaction with CorporateTime servers via the Ruby programming language. Versions 2.x and 9.x of the CAPI are supported.
db-backed is a Ruby library providing a convenient mechanism for describing objects bound to a backing database. This relieves the programmer from much of the tedium associated with writing programs with DB access. Instead of spending a lot of time working on code that reads data from the database, code that stuffs it into useable objects, remembering whether a particular piece of data lives in the database or not, etc., db-backed allows the programmer to simply design their database schema (with a few constraints), and write a very simple class definition which describes the mapping between database fields, class methods, and foreign key mappings.
FormValidator is a Ruby port of Perl's Data::FormValidator library. It makes it easy to validate data coming in from HTML forms by providing a robust set of methods to handle required fields, dependent fields, filtering, constraints, tainting, and defaults. Its modular design allows you to easily add your own filters and constraints and also lets you to keep validation data outside of your CGI scripts.
jUDO (java Universal Data Objects) speeds up development/maintainence and removes database-vendor dependency for applications using databases. You should use jUDO whenever you don't want to use EJBs. You don't write any database code; you only have to specify the container classes and the interfaces for the models, and then jUDO creates the implementation for you runtime (no source is generated). It derives all info needed from your interfaces method names that follows name-pattern rules. In case you need some special access method, you either add a plugin for this or simply go directly against the database. jUDO is not as configurable and advanced as other much more professional software like Castor, Hibernate, etc., but since jUDO derives the database from your code, there is never a mismatch between code and database.
Ruby PHP Serializer is a Ruby module providing workalikes of PHP's serialize() and unserialize() functions, enabling it to manipulate serialized PHP data structures. It supports Array, Hash, String, Fixnum, Float, NilClass, TrueClass, FalseClass, and Struct, and has some support for arbitary object handling.
