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.
Chief Database records time series data in real time. Data is compressed to reduce disk requirements and improve performance. Redo logging and caching provide high performance on minimal hardware, with minimal data loss in the event of hardware failure. 1 million coordinates can be processed per second on server-level hardware. All interfaces are SOAP; allowing for easy integration with other systems and Web sites. Data is usually from a telemetered resource, but can also come from SNMP. Chief Trends allows for trending data inside Firefox. Chief Calculator is a Perl calculation engine to manipulate the data in whatever way you want.
Moose is a framework for getting XML into and out of Java software. It integrates easily with Spring, Spring Web Services, or plain Java applications. It will generate an XML schema which describes your mapping configuration. Spring Web Services can wrap Moose's schema generator, creating a nice stack for simple, rapid development of SOAP Web services in Java.
Citrus is a test framework written in Java that enables automated integration testing of message-based enterprise SOA applications. The tool can easily simulate surrounding systems across various transports and protocols (e.g. JMS, SOAP WebServices, HTTP, TCP/IP, etc.) in order to perform end-to-end use case testing. Citrus provides strong validation mechanisms for XML message contents and allows you to build complex testing logic such as sending and receiving messages, database validation, automatic retries, variable definitions, dynamic message contents, error simulation, and many more.
