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.
BaseX is a light-weight, high-performance, and scalable XML database system and XPath/XQuery processor, including full support for the W3C Update and Full Text extensions. An interactive and user-friendly GUI frontend gives you great insight into large XML data instances. It is platform independent and works out of the box.
FramerD is a semi-structured object database integrated with a Scheme-based scripting language which supports multi-lingual programming (with pervasive Unicode), a stable module system for programming in the large, distributed applications (via an extensible RPC protocol), non-deterministic (PROLOG-like) evaluation for search and set operations, multi-threaded program execution, extensive tools for text and language analysis, built-in HTML/XML/MIME parsers, and intuitive (CGI- and FastCGI-based) Web scripting. The built-in object database robustly supports millions of objects and indexed access to those objects, both through disk files and networked servers.
The NCBI C++ Toolkit provides portable libraries and applications for assisting genetic science. These include libraries for networking, SQL and BerkeleyDB access, CGI and HTML handling, ASN.1 and XML handling, sequence alignment engines, sequence retrieval engines, BLAST database engines, FLTK and OpenGL graphics toolkits, and basic system utilities.
OpenDaemon provides a model of work along with its supporting APIs that allow anybody to implement a server of any kind, for any protocol. Its main goal is to help provide an advanced data storage solution that is flexible enough to allow its user to choose from a broad set of parsers, data extractors, processors, or any other supporting API. The generic server platform system is meant to make development of the data storage solution more open and distributable.
Permission Record Information Machine (PRIM) delivers database connectivity via a web browser. Users can have different database permissions (e.g. create tables, modify tables, etc.). PRIM has built-in database analytical tools such as graph displays, reporting, etc. English and Chinese (Big5) language support.
PhiloLogic is a full-text database engine developed for humanities computing text analysis by the ARTFL Project and the Digital Library Development Center at the University of Chicago. It is optimized for fast searching across very large collections of documents. It currently supports TEI-Lite, TEI XML, and TEI SGML documents.
QOF (Query Object Framework), provides a set of C Language utilities for performing generic structured complex queries on a set of data held by a set of C/C++ objects. This framework is unique in that it does not require SQL or any database at all to perform the query. Thus, it allows programmers to add query support to their applications without having to hook into an SQL database.
