XINS is a technology used to define, create, and invoke remote APIs. XINS is specification-oriented. When API specifications are written (in XML), XINS will transform them to HTML-based documentation and Java code for both the client-side and the server-side. The communication is based on HTTP. XINS competes with the complex SOAP technology. Main design goals include simplicity, scalability, and testability. XINS is not only a specification technology, but also an application development framework. It offers transaction logging, unique log documentation, and active code generation.
PDFreactor is a formatting processor to convert HTML and XML to PDF. It uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to define page layout and styles. It allows you to dynamically generate PDF documents such as invoices, delivery notes, shipping documents, or print versions of Web content on-the-fly. Vector graphics (SVG), barcodes, MathML, XSLT, and CMYK colors are supported. All common J2EE application servers are supported. Complete .NET, PHP, Perl, Python, and Ruby APIs are included. Direct integration into automatic build processes using Apache Ant is also possible.
metaf2xml can download, parse, and decode aviation routine weather reports (METAR, SPECI, SAO), aerodrome forecasts (TAF), synoptic observations (SYNOP), and BUOY observations, and store the data as XML. XSLT style sheets convert it to plain language, as HTML or text. Current weather data from NOAA and other sources can be fetched and displayed.
Spensierato is a simple-to-use Web site CMS. It is designed to allow in-site editing so that non-technical users can just find the page, update an element, and save it. It is written in PHP using a MySQL backend and released under the GPL. Some components use different license agreements; details are included.
betterFORM is an implementation of the W3C XForms 1.1 Recommendation. It allows easy creation of highly dynamic Web 2.0 user interfaces with attractive controls and layout. You can add validations, calculations, actions, and events to build complete Web applications in a declarative way.
Molinos CMS is a modular CMS. It supports multiple Web sites per installation, multiple domains per Web site, and different subdomains for different Web site sections. It uses XSLT for templating; templates can be organized in themes, which can be applied to either all pages or particular pages. It can use MySQL or SQLite for data stoarge; all data is available in XML format, ready to use by templates and scripts. User groups (roles) and advanced ACL can be used to control access to that data. It supports many caching and code optimization techniques. Data storage is optimized to minimize queries required to display pages. There are modules for integrating with various third-party services (over 70 modules). Modules are simple to write using the provided documentation (currently only available in Russian). Web sites can use local and system modules simultaneously. It works with most Web servers, and has a built-in Web server (for localhost development). It also has a CLI for most tasks.
