BlueJ is an interactive Java development environment. It provides a unique user interface that presents a graphical display of the application classes and their relationships, and it lets users interactively create objects of any class. Once objects have been created, users can interact with them directly. This interaction mechanism allows for much greater testing and experimentation than in conventional environments. BlueJ is suited for teaching and learning OO and Java.
PHP On Pie is a PHP framework that combines the best ideas from PHP projects like Drupal, CodeIgniter, Kohana, and ZendFramework. It has very few core concepts: classes, models, events, slots, and tools. It lets you repackage completed apps into plugins that you or others can use later. Its smart database classes allow you to implement vertical and horizontal partitioning (sharding) easily to handle millions of users.
Huxley is a set of classes that makes it trivial to produce legitimate output for queries made by the prevailing standard of REST queries. Instead of writing a network API with many methods, being run over RPC, you instead write only a couple of methods that are accessed by HTTP GET requests. You then return the results (in either XML, JSON, or text) for processing. XML and JSON are chosen because of the ease by which they can be parsed by most languages. In this way, you open up the scope of your network services to many more people than would otherwise have access to it.
Flat File Reporting allows you to use fixed width files as a data source in IReport designer and Jasper Reports. It uses a record description (which can be XML, Cobol, or RecordEditor Record Layouts) to describe the file format. You can design reports via IReports wizards or by draging and dropping fields onto the report. It can also be used for reports for the RecordEditor and JRecord Projects.
MoCo is a system that monitors and controls SCADA points, such as temperature, HVAC, power, lighting, sprinkler systems, and more. It has industrial capabilities, but is scalable from very small home systems to enterprise, world-wide ones. It works with inexpensive I/O bridges (including X10, Insteon, and 1-wire) from a number of manufacturers. It has sophisticated history logging and diverse control capabilities, as well as a 117-page implementation manual.
