"DATA JUNCTION Data Junction, the Company's flagship product, is a visual design tool for rapidly building and testing transformation objects that work with hundreds of applications and structured data formats. Two major design components automate every aspect of complex application integration and data transformation with drag-and-drop ease. The Project Designer is a graphical process flow component that provides a canvas onto which process steps can be dragged/dropped and interconnected. It employs simple flowchart symbols to link a limitless number of transformation objects together in a single, automated project. In addition to transformations designed with Data Junction, the Project Designer allows users to integrate external procedures, test global variables, leverage full conditional flow control and implement transactions between steps. The Conversion Designer combines the ease of an intuitive GUI with a robust transformation engine to visually and directly map source data to target structures while allowing the user to manipulate the data in virtually limitless ways. Both design components feature integrated metadata functionality for publishing to a repository or querying internally.

Developers can extend Data Junction's range of supported formats with the Custom Data Interface SDK. The CDI SDK is an API that enables developers to write their own connections between Data Junction and unique data sources residing on any platform. This SDK functionality is perfect for connectivity to proprietary file formats or for an additional pre-or post-process layer of security and/or record handling."


pxtools is a collection of tools to work with a Paradox-database. It consists of pxinfo, pxsqldump and pxcsvdump. pxinfo scans the header of a specified database-file and dumps the important informations on the screen. pxsqldump is a utility to extract the data from Paradox-database. The output is a SQL-dump that can be used to recreate the database in an SQL-enviroment. It dumps the 'CREATE TABLE' and the 'INSERT INTO'-commands to create the database. pxcsvdump is a brother of pxsqldump and produces CSV-tables. platform: Linux

AutoClass solves the problem of automatic discovery of classes in data (sometimes called clustering, or unsupervised learning), as distinct from the generation of class descriptions from labeled examples (called supervised learning). It aims to discover the "natural" classes in the data. AutoClass is applicable to observations of things that can be described by a set of attributes, without referring to other things. The data values corresponding to each attribute are limited to be either numbers or the elements of a fixed set of symbols. With numeric data, a measurement error must be provided. platform: Linux package: Debian
