[015] - GEMS EMF Intelligence Beta 1.01
  by Jules White (http://freshmeat.net/users/juleswhite/)
  Wed, Oct 24th 2007 11:26

About: GEMS EMF Intelligence is a framework designed to help you reason
about your EMF models. The framework provides a knowledge base that you
can assert EMF modeling elements into. Once modeling elements are asserted
into the knowledge base, you can add constraints to relationships between
model elements. Finally, you can use GEMS EMF Intelligence to derive valid
endpoints (other objects in the knowledge base) for relationships (such as
EReferences) of a modeling element. GEMS EMF Intelligence supports
constraints written in OCL, Prolog, Groovy, and BeanShell. Multiple
constraint languages can be mixed in a single knowledge base.

written to traverse the model and generate code, perform analyses, or
execute the model. The tool supports complex model analysis using Prolog;
Java, OCL, and Prolog constraints, remote model updating via CORBA,
applying CSS styles to models, model-to-model linking, exportable
templates, and more.

Changes: Numerous bugfixes, an improved plug-in generation wizard,
improved support for CSS styles, a customizable palette via CSS, a
customizable context menu via CSS, and a new event/action (triggers)

  Wed, Oct 24th 2007 00:40

Education :: Computer Aided Instruction (CAI)
Education :: Testing

About: LON-CAPA (The LearningOnline Network with CAPA) is a learning
content and course management system. It offers an underlying shared
content pool from which instructors across departmental and institutional
boundaries can assemble granular learning content for their courses. It
has strong assessment capabilities, both formative (homework and in-class
using wireless PDAs) and summative (online and bubblesheet exams), with a
one-source multiple-target strategy for the content. It offers students
portfolio space in which they can stage materials for submission to
projects, and provides a number of tools for synchronous and asynchronous
student-student and student-faculty communication. LON-CAPA scales well
with number of students, as load-balancing is possible across the whole
network of servers at participating institutions.

Changes: The load-balancing functionality has been modified to recognize
existing sessions and route the user back to the machine on which the
session is active. Cloning of courses has been improved such that
permissions can be configured during initial course setup and include
wildcards. Submission of answers in multipart problems is more intuitive.
IMS import of WebCT 4.1 CE (TM) packages is enabled. A permanent email
address can be set when creating a new user. The German localization has
been updated. Checking for RPM updates on SuSE 10.2 has been fixed.

Information Management :: Records Management
Information Management :: Workflow Frameworks
Office/Business :: Groupware

About: Method Support is a system for quickly producing process support
Web sites. It simplifies the process by requiring the administrator to
just provide a "schema" file describing the forms and the workflow that
define the process. The administrator can then generate the entire site by
running a single command line. Method Support is a program for supporting
procedures by defining online forms, equivalent to a set of paper forms.
The emphasis of this approach is to make it easy to set up forms and to
modify the forms over time.

[031] - Monetra 6.2.0

  Wed, Oct 24th 2007 11:00

Office/Business :: Financial
Office/Business :: Financial :: Point-Of-Sale

About: Monetra (formerly known as MCVE) is a scalable credit card
processing engine for Linux and UNIX. It is designed to handle credit card
authorizations and is certified to support major clearing house protocols.
Features include support for multiple modems, multiple merchant accounts,
and multiple processors, all simultaneously -- as well as IP and SSL
connectivity along side SQL database support. Designed in C, conforming to
POSIX standards, and utilizing light weight processes (threads), this
product is able to handle a large number of transactions with high speed
and minimal CPU usage.

Changes: The default database is now SQLite, deprecating the project's own
MCSQL; this provides better consistency during system or power failures as
well as better performance. The database schema has been redesigned to
make better use of execution plan caches. Merchant account information is
now stored encrypted; though this is not necessary for PCI data security
requirements, one should still be protected against malicious use.
Recertifications for FHMS and Paymentech Salem. Other performance and
consistency improvements have also been made.

Database :: Front-Ends

About: MyJgui is a GUI (graphical user interface) for MySQL. It aims to be
easy to use for new users as well as experts. You can store multiple
connections that can be used simultaneously. Stored passwords are
encrypted using symmetric encryption. Underlying databases and tables are
displayed in a tree structure with the connections being the first level
nodes. MyJgui is capable of easy data manipulation through a grid. It has
a unique feature of bookmarking parametrical queries (sqlmarks). The
documentation (user guide) is quite comprehensive and kept up-to-date.

Changes: You can either select the text to be executed as a query, or
simply run the line in which the cursor is present. Double clicking on a
connection node opens the connection. New options in preferences were
added, so you can set or change your default limit for the Content tab of
a table, and you can set which tab will be shown after selecting the table
in the tree. Inserting into or updating the Date and Timestamp columns was
fixed. The quick search window resizes according to its contents

[037] - pdo-x 0.5 alpha

  Wed, Oct 24th 2007 04:48

Database :: API
Software Development :: Libraries :: PHP Classes

About: pdo-x is a data access library for PHP5. It is intended to provide
a lightweight, intuitive wrapper for the PDO database library included in
PHP since version 5.1. The pdo-x implementation is, in some ways, similar
to the Active Record pattern or the Data Access Object pattern, but at
currently less than 40kb in three core files, it leaves less of a
footprint than many other implementations. Because it wraps the PDO
library, it presents a single, consistent API for accessing different
types of databases.
