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).
SILGraphite (formerly OpenGraphite) is a project within SIL's Non-Roman Script Initiative and Language Software Development groups to provide extensible cross-platform rendering capabilities for complex non-Roman writing systems. It consists of a rule-based programming language, Graphite Description Language (GDL), that can be used to describe the behavior of a writing system, a compiler for that language, and a rendering engine that can serve as the backend of a text processing application. SILGraphite renders TrueType fonts that have been extended by means of compiling a GDL program. It is currently being integrated into Gecko/Mozilla through the SILA project, a GNU/Linux port is also underway, and there are plans for OpenOffice.org and Abiword integration.
xopus is a browser-based (Mozilla, IE) in-place WYSIWYG XML editor. It works similarly to a word processor, and uses XSLT stylesheets to transform the XML to user-presentable HTML and XML Schema to preserve the XML validity. A commercial version with table, rich text, and enumeration editing is available as well.
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.
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.
EZ Reusable Objects (EZRO) is a Web application that can be used by non-technical staff to manage content as "objects." Content objects containing text, video, and audio can be shared, modified, and re-styled to appear via a traditional Web site, an on-line course, an innovative "Coach," or as a community of interest site. It is highly scalable and can be used for public Web sites, secure environments, and private intra/extranets.
