POCO C++ Libraries For Mac Publisher's description
Simplify and accelerate the development of network-centric, portable applications in C++
POCO, the C++ Portable Components, is a collection of open source C++ class libraries that simplify and accelerate the development of network-centric, portable applications in C++.
The libraries integrate perfectly with the C++ Standard Library and fill many of the functional gaps left open by it.
Their modular and efficient design and implementation makes the C++ Portable Components extremely well suited for embedded development, an area where the C++ programming language is becoming increasingly popular, due to its suitability for both low-level (device I/O, interrupt handlers, etc.) and high-level object-oriented development. Of course, POCO is also ready for enterprise-level challenges.
The POCO libraries free developers from re-inventing the wheel, and help them spend their time on more worthwhile areas, such as getting things done quickly and working on the features that make their application unique.
Objectives and Mission
POCO aims to be for network-centric, cross-platform C++ software development what Apple's Cocoa is for Mac development, or Ruby on Rails is for Web development a powerful, yet easy to use platform to build your applications upon.
POCO is built strictly on standard ANSI/ISO C++, including the standard library. The developers of POCO attempt to find a good balance between using advanced C++ features and keeping the classes comprehensible and the code clean, consistent and easy to maintain.
Here are some key features of "POCO C++ Libraries":
В· threads, thread synchronization and advanced abstractions for multithreaded programming
В· streams and filesystem access
В· shared libraries and class loading
В· powerful logging and error reporting
В· network programming (TCP/IP sockets, HTTP, FTP, SMTP, etc.)
В· XML parsing (SAX2 and DOM) and generation
В· configuration file and options handling
В· database access
What's New in This Release:В· SSLManager: documentation fixes, code cleanup
В· SSLManager: renamed PrivateKeyPassPhrase event to PrivateKeyPassphraseRequired
В· added HTTPServerRequestImpl::socket() to get access to the underlying socket
В· added Socket::secure() to find out whether a given socket supports SSL/TLS
В· added SecureStreamSocket::havePeerCertificate()
В· NetSSL: added support for turning off extended certificate validation (hostname matching)
В· fixed SF# 2941228: ICMPClient::ping() issues on Mac OS X
В· fixed SF# 2941231: ICMPEventArgs out of bounds array access
В· added PageCompiler sample
В· added missing newline at end of xmlparse.c
В· Poco::Glob can now be used with an empty pattern which will match nothing (patch from Kim Graesman)
В· added support for HTTP proxy authentication (Basic authentication only)
В· fixed SF# 2958959: XMLWriter must encode CR, LF and TAB in attribute values as character entities.
В· HTMLForm now supports PUT requests as well (see )
В· fixed SF# #2970521: FileOutputStream and file permissions.
System Requirements:No special requirements.
