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.
wxDesigner is a dialog editor and RAD tool for the wxWindows C++ library and its popular Python and Perl bindings. It includes a visual dialog editor, a bitmap editor, a syntax-highlighting source editor, and built-in mechanisms for automatic generation of file skeletons, GUI classes, event handlers, and getter functions. It provides an identical user interface and identical functionality for C++, Perl, and Python, and it can generate output in C++, Python, Perl, and XML.
Synopsis is a multi-language source code introspection tool that provides a variety of representations for the parsed code to enable further processing such as documentation extraction, reverse engineering, and source-to-source translation. It provides a framework of C++ and Python APIs to access these representations and allows Processor objects to be defined and composed into processing pipelines, making this framework very flexible and extensible.
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.
PyDBDesigner is an entity-relation (ERW) database modeling tool for both Windows and Unix/Linux. It is similar to Power Designer or Erwin, and both physical and logical models are supported. Its main features are database modeling, SQL generation, documentation generation, and reverse engineering. PyDBDesigner is intended to be a GUI design tool for the ERW (entities and relations on the Web) project.
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.
