GNUe Common

GNU Enterprise Common is a common library of routines that GNUe Forms, GNUe Designer, GNUe Reports and GNUe Application Server use to provide various shared functions:

  • Database Abstraction - to support multiple different database back-ends.
  • A Client-Server application framework - to allow different parts of the GNUe framwork to operate on different physical machines.
  • RPC abstraction - to support multiple different Remote Procedure Call methods.
  • Object-to-XML and XML-to-Object library - a common XML parser.

It is also, under the name GNU-RPC, a proposed standard RPC module for use by any GNU project, or any other project, that needs database and RPC abstraction.
