XMLToaster is a tool for extracting and loading XML from databases. It provides a modified version of SQL which has XML mapping extenstions. It can be compared to the "for xml" command in MS SQL Server 2008, but it runs on all common databases and scales to handle very large XML mappings without too much complexity. It is used as a Java library to write XML interfaces, but can also be run as a command line tool.
Xlit converts text from one writing system into another. It allows the user to define a transliteration simply by typing the input strings in one window and the strings to which they are to be mapped in another. Transliteration may be restricted to regions bounded by specified delimiters or their complements. Transliteration may also be performed by external commands or plugins. Xlit can also convert one type of delimiter to another, e.g. from HZ escapes to XML. Xlit can read and write transliteration definitions in its own format and as Yudit keymaps. It can be run in batch mode without the GUI.
