white_dune is a graphical VRML97/X3DV editor, simple NURBS/Superformula 3D modeller, animation tool, and VRML97/X3DV commandline compiler in development. VRML97 (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) is the ISO standard for displaying 3D data over the Web via browser plugins ("HTML for realtime 3D"). X3DV is the direct successor of VRML97. VRML97 and X3DV have support for animation, real-time interaction, and multimedia (images, movies, and sounds). white_dune can read, create, and display VRML97/X3DV files and let the user change the scenegraph/fields. It also has support for stereoscopic view via "quadbuffer"-capable stereo visuals, and support for 3D input devices like a joystick, spaceball, or magnetic tracker.
The ALICE software implements AIML (Artificial Intelligence Markup Language), a non-standard evolving markup language for creating chat robots. The primary design feature of AIML is minimalism. Compared with other chat robot languages, AIML is perhaps the simplest. The pattern matching language is very simple, for example permitting only one wild-card ('*') match character per pattern. AIML is an XML language, implying that it obeys certain grammatical meta-rules. The choice of XML syntax permits integration with other tools such as XML editors. Another motivation for XML is its familiar look and feel, especially to people with HTML experience.
s3d is an XML schema for 3d scenes, objects, and so forth (intended primarily but not exclusively for computer games). The problem is that often as a games developer you need to work with many 3d editing tools and rendering engines, and there should be an easy and portable way to move objects, levels, etc. around. By having a common intermediate file format, you only need to write one exporter per tool and one importer per graphics engine. Also, you can develop generic tools which are not tied to any particular engine.
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.
xmlizer configurator/server is a client/server approach for custom database to XML mapping. The configurator is used to set up projects and the server delivers the processed requests on demand (like a Web server) according to the mapping rules made with the configurator, which includes a drag and drop GUI. One module is for dumping databases (or parts of it) in a fixed format and the other module can build XML instances satisfying a specified XML Schema (or DTD).
Lantern is a tool that lets users load XML documents and test XPath expressions. It produces an immediate graphical result where selected and context nodes are highlighted, and displays the XML document in the same format as it is stored in the file (rather than as an ugly tree widget). It is aware of name spaces and allows the user to set a context node to test expressions related to it.
