Description

Build lightweight networks of service-based components (SOA or Cloud). Programmable framework with many features - add/run services, add/search metadata, autonomous, agent-based, self-organising and distributed communication. Java J2SE (1.4+) compatible.

Communication includes XML-RPC, HTTP and dynamic Web Services (SOAP or RESTful).

An 'All-in-One' GUI is a free tool, available from another site. You can use it to run all of the packages and your own separate modules. Alternatively, write your own programs using the stand-alone server, or by extending the open source classes.

A p2p network can be setup requiring only the HTTP address and optional passwords. Example Apps are messenger, file sharing and web services invocation.

The code can also be used for more scientific programs. Sub-packages include text or query processing, or heuristic evaluation. A problem solver provides genetic algorithms and other AI algorithms, integrated into the whole system.

    I tried it on one of my VPS servers and so far it is very smooth and error-free

    It works. It supports pretty much everything you can think of. It doesn't crash in the hands of a casual user.
