Scone is using on several Java libraries and tools. More Information on the included packages
can be found on the download page.
We are using the following tools:
Several related projects implement programmable proxy server with a comparable functionality to WBI,
which is itself used by Scone as basis for its proxy component.
Other projects present other promising concepts to augment the functionality of the Web.
- Arakne is an open collaborative
hypermedia system for the Web. It was developed at the University of Aarhus.
- Muffin is a WWW proxy filtering system, written in
Java and developed by Mark Boyns.
- WebSphinx is a Java class
library with an interactive development environment for Web robots.
- The extensible Retrieval Annotation
Caching Engine (eRACE)
is a middleware for the development and provision of intermediary services on the Internet.
eRACE is a modular, programmable and distributed proxy infrastructure that collects
information from heterogeneous Internet sources and protocols according to end-user requests.
- Pluxy - The pluggable proxy.
Pluxy - The pluggable proxy.
a modular Web proxy written in Java which can receive a dynamic set of services.
Pluxy offers some basic services like collaborative HTTP request processing and GUI
management. Pluxy is typically intended to test new proxy mecanisms (filtering, caching, ...)
or to develop browsers assistants.
- RabbIT is a Java Web proxy that was
developed to speed up using the web. RabbIT removes ads and selected graphics.
It also compresses text pages and recodes graphics to decrease the amount of transferred data.
- The V6 Engine is another proxy filtering system
written in Objective Caml.
- OreO introduced in 1995 the idea of
proxy servers working as ``stream transducers““.
