autober is a language for generating BER decoders. It's different from an ASN.1 compiler in that it's much simpler and it only deals with BER-encoded messages. It is intended for smart card and RFID applications where much of the data stored on these devices is, in-fact, BER-encoded TLV data. The language is designed to be very similar to the template definitions found in the specifications for smart card and RFID applications.
Data2l is a language neutral, platform neutral way for describing large sets of proprietary binary data. An example of this kind of data is car navigation data, which is about 1GB to 15GB in a typical embedded navigation. With Data2l you can easily describe almost any binary data format using primitive description blocks like basic type, array, structure, or alternative and using a functional dependency description language. Using such a description, one can generate source code optimized for certain tasks, like a lightweight data reading layer, fast querying code, or code suitable for data generation and transformation.
XML to DDL is a set of Python programs that converts an XML representation of a database into a set of SQL or DDL (Data Definition Language) commands. In addition, it can examine the difference between two XML files and output a sequence of SQL statements (normally ALTER statements) to bring one database up-to-date with the XML schema. You can also download the XML schema directly from the database. Finally, there's a tool to convert your schema into HTML for documentation purposes. XML to DDL currently supports the most recent versions of PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle, and Firebird databases.
Ice is a modern alternative to object middleware such as CORBA or COM/DCOM/COM+. It is easy to learn, yet provides a powerful network infrastructure for demanding technical applications. It features an object-oriented specification language, easy to use C++ and Java mappings, a highly efficient protocol (including protocol compression), asynchronous method invocation and dispatch, dynamic transport plug-ins, TCP/IP and UDP/IP support, SSL-based security, a firewall solution, and much more.
Marathon is a GUI test tool that allows you to play and record scripts against a Java Swing UI. It's written in Java, and uses Python and Ruby as its scripting language (the emphasis being on an extremely simple, readable syntax that customers/testers/analysts feel comfortable with). Marathon includes a recorder, editor, player, and debugger to simplify working with test scripts.
