Java distributed framework is a framework for distributed grid and / or volunteer computing. It's divided into a server and client library. You can create new or implement it into existing applications in no time; you don't need knowledge about network connections, sockets, etc. The Framework does almost everything automatically. It provides secure automatic client <-> server communications, unique IDs, automatic resending of jobs to new clients if needed, user stats, and much more. The client framework supports the detection of the computer's user state (idling, away, online, etc.). It also offers many other useful features and helpers for developing a distributed client application.
Awake SQL is a virtual JDBC Driver and a framework that enables remote JDBC access through HTTP. It allows Android and Java desktop app developers to use regular JDBC calls to access remote SQL databases in the cloud. It implements the main data types including blobs/clobs, and supports transactions. Security has been taken into account from the design stage: server-side configuration lets admins specify strong authentication and security rules in order to protect the databases.
