Collage is a cross-platform C++ library for building heterogenous, distributed applications. Among other things, it is the cluster backend for the Equalizer parallel rendering framework. It provides an abstraction of different network connections, peer-to-peer messaging, node discovery, synchronization, and high-performance, object-oriented, versioned data distribution. It is designed for low-overhead multi-threaded execution, which allows applications to easily exploit multi-core architectures.
cso is an easy to use C module that serializes objects into a simple binary format. It can be used to store data or to send it over a network. It supports either an object of type struct (CSO_DICT) or array (CSO_ARRAY) which contains elements of type integer of different sizes, double, binary, string, struct, or array.
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.
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).
Yap4j is the simplest library for parsing CSV files in Java. It deserializes CSV files into a list of POJOs using a set of Java annotations, while allowing you to specify Object-CSV mappings. It automatically converts to and from a wide range of data types, and includes support for types from popular libraries such as Joda Time, and support for custom record delimiters.
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.
