X2c is an Xbase compiler that creates executable programs from Xbase source on any Unix or C platform. This is accomplished by creating C source from the Xbase source, compiling, and linking with included Xbase function libraries. Whilst the C source is considered an intermediate stage for X2c, it can be used and developed as any other C source. The X2c dialect of Xbase accepts virtually all statements from Borland (was Ashton-Tate), dBASE III PLUS, Computer Associates (was Nantucket), Clipper (Summer '87), and Microsoft (was Fox Software) FoxBASE (2.1). Selected Foxpro statements are also supported.
Cameleon a Framework for developing reliable database applications in a technology independent and predominantly editorial way. User interfaces may be easily exchanged from Swing to HTML and vice versa, and databases may be exchanged in the same manner. The Swing variant framework is established. The HTML user interface is under construction but can be reviewed on the project Webpage ("Test sample application"). Cameleon's target users are programmers who manage midrange data volumes (from thousands to millions of database records) and who prefer simplicity and availability rather than animation. Business features such as security management and parameter administration are supported in the framework. The framework allows web developement without any knowledge of JSP, HTML, Servlets etc. Data input elements (and groups of them) may be used in Java Server Pages.
JBind is a data binding framework linking Java and XML. It consists of a schema compiler for generating Java sources and a runtime environment. The runtime environment is used for unmarshalling (reading) and marshalling (writing) XML documents, for validation, and for accessing and manipulating XML data. In addition, JBind introduces the concept of XML code that is the result of adding behavior to XML data. XML code is the seamless integration of manually implemented methods with sources generated by the schema compiler. XML code offers great possibilities for application, framework, and configuration developments. Instance documents are validated against their schema when they are unmarshalled. Simple constraints (constraints that consider only single values of attributes or simple content of elements) are enforced during manipulation. Global constraints (constraints that consider the occurrence of attributes/elements or identity constraints) can be checked by an explicit API call.
WSIF (the "Web Services Invocation Framework") is a WSDL-based API for invoking WSDL-described services. WSIF developers interact with Web Services at the abstract level through their WSDL descriptions. This is done independently of APIs specific to a message format or network protocol (eg SOAP APIs). With WSIF, developers work with the same programming model regardless of how the Web service is implemented and accessed.
