The adventure PHP framework (APF) is a utility to implement object oriented and generic PHP Web applications. It allows the developer to create programs in compliance with approved software design patterns, and the code base already has answers to many everyday problems. The framework cannot be described as an application that only has to be configured, but rather as a technical basis and design guide for the design of software. Further, it introduced many concepts and efficiency tools already well known in the Java community.
AltioLive Studio provides a development environment to rapidly build front ends to complex Web based applications, with rich client interactivity beyond the capabilities of the best AJAX front ends. Included are a Visual GUI builder, a backend integration tool, and other development tools, which allow developers to build the interface for their applications quickly, remotely, and without touching an XML or Java editor, so that they can get on with developing the business logic on the backend.
With MetaModel, you use a type-safe SQL-like API for querying any datastore. It is a data access framework providing a common interface for exploration and querying of different types of datastores. It isn't a data mapping framework. Instead, it emphasizes abstraction of metadata and the ability to add data sources at runtime, making MetaModel great for generic data processing applications, but less so for applications modeled around a particular domain.
Bambookit GUI is a completely XML-scriptable user interface to build real-time interactive Web application front-ends. Applications occupy 100 Kb of device memory and run on any Java-enabled browser. Users can move windows, resize containers, scroll and sort tables, lists, trees, see real-time data display, use a layout manager, and more. All rendering and event handling is managed in the XML scripts.
Blackbird is the first enterprise service bus (ESB) for PHP developers. It provides a range of services, including managing configuration data, connections to message queues, databases, and other applications, and many more features. This makes it possible to very rapidly develop message-based applications and/or integration layers.
DBX works using XML files as its native format. The database can be queried using standard SQL queries. DBX is the smallest, platform independent DBMS, and is extremely easy to migrate to. For small databases, it is a good substitute for MySQL, Oracle, etc. The added advantage is that it saves the data as neat, readable, XML files, allowing easy compatibility.
Hydrate is a Java mapping tool that lets you lay an object model over relational and XML data and move information quickly and efficiently between these three representations. Its strength lies in working with existing relational or XML databases, over whose schemas you have little or no control. Through Hydrate, you can perform complex calculations and reporting that are best expressed in high-level problem domain modelling offered by an object-oriented language. Hydrate solves real-world problems in a practical way, is flexible, robust, and fast.
