BRAP is a Java remoting protocol that uses native Java object serialization encapsulated in HTTP. It aims to be an alternative to Spring HttpInvoker and Spring Security, especially when you don't need or want the dependencies of Spring in your client, such as when building a rich client application where size might be an issue. The authentication mechanism lets you use your own domain objects as credentials. BRAP gives you "pass by reference" even though the object arguments are serialized and passed to the remote service: changes that happen on the remote side can be applied to the client side automatically. BRAP focuses on being easy to use, small in size, yet powerful and extensible.
RestyGWT is a GWT generator for REST services and JSON encoded data transfer objects. RestyGWT Rest Services allow you to define an asynchronous service API which is then implemented via GWT deferred binding by RestyGWT. It features generation of asynchronous RESTful JSON based service proxies, encoding and decoding of Java objects to JSON, and an easy-to-use REST API.
XMT (XStream Migration Tool) is a library to migrate XStream serialized XML when the associated Java class evolves. XStream is a popular library to serialize a Java object to XML and back again, and XMT enables a smooth migration of this XML with the help of dom4j when you change the class definition of the Java object.
The libQtSerialization library is a Qt extension that makes it easy to serialize your data in a forward and backward compatible way. The library is composed of QWriter and QReader. The writer is straightforward - all you have to do is call a writeTag() function and the data is serialized. The reader is a little more complex as it supports special cases, such as sub-classes (so you can save a tree of classes) and arrays of classes (your tree may be composed of multiple instances of a given object).
DSFoundation is a foundation enhancement library for Objective-C. It includes an IOC (Inversion of Control) container, translation (serialization and conversion) to and from Objects, YAML, and XML, automatic KVC adaptation and compliance, logging through an integrated Log4Cocoa, regular expression extensions, and much more.
