nexB OpenAssets is a tool for inventorying, managing, and monitoring applications, software, hardware, networks, and generally any IT asset. It is designed so that system administrators, IT, and finance can determine what they have, how it is configured, what it is used for, and how much it is being used, so that informed decisions can be made. It complements existing network management software, integrates with a growing number of protocols and tools, and features no-agent discovery and inventory, configuration management including dependencies and correlation, monitoring, and reporting. It makes extensive and innovative use of XML, Xpath, and Xquery.
wyoGuide is a tutorial, a collection of guidelines for building cross-platform applications with a well-designed, consistent look and feel. It gives ideas and advice on how an application and its GUI could and should be written. Development with these guidelines gives the GUI of an application a standard set of base functionality. wyoGuide also provides sample code for each guideline written in C++ using the wxWidgets (formerly wxWindows) framework. For a seasoned developer it shouldn't be difficult to adapt these guidelines to other languages or frameworks.
Libsmbios is a cross-platform library intended to be used to obtain common information available in a BIOS. Major features include the ability to update the BIOS on Dell systems (in conjunction with the Dell RBU Linux kernel driver), programmatic access to information in SMBIOS tables, and the ability to obtain Dell system-specific information such as the Dell System ID number, service tag, and asset tag. Future plans include APIs for $PIR and mptable mapping. There is a C API for some of the more commonly used functions, and example binaries to show off most of the facilities.
JagPDF is a library for generating PDF documents in C/C++, Python, and Java. It supports TrueType (subsetting) and standard 14 Type 1 fonts, font metrics, Unicode, UTF-8 and common 8-bit character encodings, images (JPEG, PNG, or custom), paths, color spaces (RGB, CMYK, CIE based, ICC profiles, indexed), encryption, bookmarks, hyperlinks, and more.
Platform Independent Petri Net Editor (PIPE) creates and analyses Petri Nets quickly, efficiently, and effectively. A key design feature is the modular approach adopted for analysis, enabling new modules to be written easily and powerfully, using built-in data layer methods for standard calculations. Six analysis modules are provided, including Invariant Analysis, State-Space Analysis (deadlock, etc.), and Simulation Analysis and Classification. PIPE adheres to the XML Petri net standard (PNML). The file format for saving and loading Petri Nets is extensible through the use of XSLT, the default being PNML.
