XINS is a technology used to define, create, and invoke remote APIs. XINS is specification-oriented. When API specifications are written (in XML), XINS will transform them to HTML-based documentation and Java code for both the client-side and the server-side. The communication is based on HTTP. XINS competes with the complex SOAP technology. Main design goals include simplicity, scalability, and testability. XINS is not only a specification technology, but also an application development framework. It offers transaction logging, unique log documentation, and active code generation.
Azzyzt JEE Tools is a set of Eclipse plugins for creating a so-called "azzyzted" project, and for creating code from a model. Azzyzt uses Java JPA entities as a model, and from that model it creates an enterprise application, ready to be deployed in a Java EE 6 application server like GlassFish 3.1, ready to be accessed via CORBA, SOAP, and REST. Thus the generated application is a set of Web services, providing all that you need in a typical CRUD application. Generated enterprise applications have separate source folders for generated and developer-supplied content. You can add your own functionality to a well-engineered base project. Azzyzt JEE Tools is not about user interfaces. It is expected that the generated application is accessed by a RIA frontend or by a fat client.
WSF Staff is Web Service Framework for C++, AJAX, and J2ME that is based on Apache Axis2/C. WSF Staff wraps Apache Axis2/C code into C++, and also provides many additional features: a stateful Web services implementation in C++ with instance support, a synchronous and asynchronous client implementation in C++, AJAX, and J2ME, a service-component architecture implementation, support for RESTful Web services and clients, WSDL support with xsd import and export, J2ME client support (based on ksoap), a flexible and extensible code generator to generate any sort of Web service related source code (not only in C++), security support (users, groups, sessions, ACLs, etc.), and a Web application toolkit (webapp) with widget support.
