Java Web Start Java Web Start software provides the power to launch full-featured applications with a single click. Users can download and launch applications, such as a complete spreadsheet program or an Internet chat client, without going through lengthy installation procedures. With Java Web Start software, users can launch a Java application by clicking a link in a web page. The link points to a Java Network Launch Protocol (JNLP) file, which instructs Java Web Start software to download, cache, and run the application. Java Web Start software provides Java developers and users with many deployment advantages: With Java Web Start software, you can place a single Java application on a web server for deployment to a wide variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, and Solaris.Java Web Start software supports multiple, simultaneous versions of the Java platform. Java Web Start software is installed as part of the JRE software.

InterBase – Site officiel Multi-Device Embeddable Database InterBase is a full-featured, high performance and scalable relational database for software developers who are looking to embed a low cost, zero-admin, lightweight database into applications on Android, iOS, Windows, OS X, Linux and Solaris. With InterBase you get powerful security, disaster recovery and journaling and support for popular database drivers for increased deployment flexibility. Zero administration. InterBase is ideal for ISVs, OEMs and VARs requiring a database that is compact in memory and disk size but without compromising sophisticated features to support business-critical applications. New! IBLite is a freely deployable, embeddable database for Android and iOS that runs in a stand-alone environment and allows deployment of apps which directly utilize the InterBase engine. More Security and Access Control InterBase offers flexible encryption capabilities required to protect all your business-critical information. Embed Once.

Berkeley DB Oracle Berkeley DB is the industry-leading open source, embeddable storage engine that provides developers a fast, reliable, local database with zero administration. Oracle Berkeley DB is a library that links directly into your application. Your application makes simple function calls, rather than sending messages to a remote server, eliminating the performance penalty of client-server architectures. Tell us about the features you would like to see in Berkeley DB. Berkeley DB delivers the same robust data storage features as traditional, relational database systems, such as ACID transactions and recovery; locking, multi-process and multi-threading for high concurrency; hot and cold backup; and replication for high availability applications. Berkeley DB is designed to store data as opaque byte arrays of data in key/value pairs indexed in one of the available access methods, as seen above. Alternatively you may be more comfortable with the SQL query language and relational data types.

Firebird SQL cheat sheet - Lorenzo Alberton Since I couldn't find a Firebird SQL cheat sheet, I wrote one, listing useful information about the upcoming Firebird 2 such as its data types, its internal and UDF functions, and the php ibase functions. Update 08-11-2006: thanks to Carlos H. Cantu and Ivan Prenosil for their suggestions. I have updated the cheat sheet accordingly. A detailed description of the cheat sheets follows, and you can start downloading them here: Firebird SQL Cheat Sheet - Details The cheat sheet is organized in 5 sections. The second section contains a list of the Internal functions. The third section contains a list of the Default UDF functions. The forth section contains some useful queries, like the most useful queries to manage TRANSACTIONs, SAVEPOINTs, SEQUENCEs, a sample query with a "LIMIT / OFFSET" clause, and some queries against the System Tables to retrieve a list of the tables, fields, indices and constraints. The last section holds a list of the PHP ibase_* functions . Disclaimer
