UnixODBC.pm provides Perl programs with a subset of the X/Open ODBC API for use with EasySoft's unixODBC DBMS libraries, as well as a peer to peer API for querying ODBC data sources on networked systems. In addition, it provides peer client and server scripts and configuration files, sample clients that perform ODBC queries on local and networked systems, result set output for RSS feeds, and two multi-host data managers: one that uses Apache and CGI to provide a Web browser interface, and another that uses Perl/Tk.
jUDO (java Universal Data Objects) speeds up development/maintainence and removes database-vendor dependency for applications using databases. You should use jUDO whenever you don't want to use EJBs. You don't write any database code; you only have to specify the container classes and the interfaces for the models, and then jUDO creates the implementation for you runtime (no source is generated). It derives all info needed from your interfaces method names that follows name-pattern rules. In case you need some special access method, you either add a plugin for this or simply go directly against the database. jUDO is not as configurable and advanced as other much more professional software like Castor, Hibernate, etc., but since jUDO derives the database from your code, there is never a mismatch between code and database.
The eGenix mxODBC Zope Database Adapter (Zope DA) allows you to easily connect your Zope installation to just about any database backend. Unlike Zope's ZODBC Zope DA, the mxODBC Zope DA works on Windows, Linux, and Solaris using the same interface. It implements thread-safe connection pooling and multiple physical connects per logical Zope connection. You can safely run Z SQL Methods in parallel, achieving much better performance than ZODBC Zope DA or similar database adapters under heavy load. This makes it ideal for deployment in clusters and hosting environments where stability and high performance are a priority.
With the PHP Text File Interface (Txt-Db-API) you can access normal text files like an SQL Database. You don't need any special database software on the Web server, yet you can still use SQL calls. You can use the API to create, query, change, or delete SQL tables, and you don't have to bother with the text files themselves; almost everthing can be done with the supported API calls. The Txt-Db-API is object-oriented and very simple to use.
Webdata Pro creates relational database solutions online, and requires no technical, programming, or SQL knowledge. It runs on any server that has MySQL. While many have mastered the HTML skills necessary to publish a Web page, integrating a database into a Web site remains a daunting task for most non-programmers. Webdata Pro solves this problem. Its Web interface provides the administrator a point-and-click path through building tables, designing search pages/reports/forms, managing records, and defining member accounts. All functions are accessed through a browser with simple, non-technical instructions. It has a built-in shopping cart, and can easily import data from other programs and upload images or documents through the browser. The program has powerful member privileges, allowing the administrator to control each member's access to the data. Calculation fields such as SUM, AVG, COUNT, ESCAPE, IF-ELSE, and more are included. Further, the software creates complex JOIN queries automatically. The administrator just selects the fields and Webdata Pro does the rest. It is designed with speed in mind, and is able to search millions of records quickly. Individually customized reports and forms can be generated using any HTML editor.
miniDB is a small and fast isam/btree library/program for record based access, used as standalone or as client/server. It features a small footprint, multi-field indexes, autoincrement fields, and database logging. All data is kept in a pure ASCII file, so you can also use grep and awk on it.
