Receive data from multiple OPC servers, organize the information and export it, with the help of this effective piece of software.
Advanced OPC Data Logger is a useful application that can receive data from one or more OPC servers, organize it into groups and prepare it for being processed and exported. The information is logged and saved in real-time to text or binary files, as well as various database models.
It is a data collection system that can be used to connect OPC servers and databases, offers backup and recovery functions and can be extended with additional plug-ins.
When first launching the utility, you need to specify which servers it should gather data from. You can set up multiple sources and switch between them using a drop-down list in the main program window.
The various servers can be organized into groups, and each of them can feature individual connection and export parameters.
The program supports log file rotation for sent or received data packets, and you can choose between binary, CSV, PDF or RTF logging.
If the application cannot write data for some reason, you can have it save the information to a temporary file, and then append it to the main log. Additionally, it can display an error message and trigger a sound alert.
Old log files can be deleted automatically after a specified period. Moreover, you have the possibility of saving only a certain number recent items.
You can have the application filter the received entries before they are exported, to avoid transferring unnecessary data.
Advanced OPC Data Logger allows you to send information directly to various types of databases, including MySQL, Oracle, MS SQL, MS Access and dBase.
Overall, this is a powerful application that can receive information from OPC servers, write logs and export information to databases in real-time. It allows you to process multiple data sources at once and features a minimalistic interface.

Designed for network administrators, this application makes it easier for them to manage multiple MSMQ servers and view messages that are sent to the queue
Message queuing is a technology implemented in all Windows computers that allows the communication across networks, even if one of the computers is temporarily offline. Practically, MSMQ servers create queues where sent messages are stored, waiting for the recipient to accept them.
When it comes to managing message queuing, things get a bit more complicated and a dedicated application is required to perform common tasks. QueueExplorer Professional offers an alternative to the MSMQ management console, enabling network administrators to oversee the activity of the MSMQ servers, manage all the outgoing messages and organize queues.
Unlike QueueExplorer Standard, it supports an unlimited number of simultaneous connections to MSMQ servers and allows server grouping, enabling you to categorize connections according to your preferences.
Thanks to its tab-based interface, QueueExplorer Professional helps you monitor multiple machines and queues at the same time. All the options and functions are accessible and clear, making the application very easy to work with.
It can be used to monitor existing queues and create new ones, as well as remove or edit outgoing messages. You can easily configure how messages are displayed by selecting the columns to show or hide, apply filters or limit the number of shown messages.
QueueExplorer Professional allows you to get a quick overview over the sent MSMQ messages and manage queues from within a user-friendly interface. It can be used to detect messages that fail to be delivered, blocking an entire queue (poison messages), perform backups of queued messages and manage queues remotely.

Export tables or queries from Oracle databases by following an intuitive step-by-step wizard, with this easy-to-use piece of software.
Exporting data from Oracle databases can be a rather complicated process, and administrators may save themselves quite a bit of time and effort by turning to a specialized utility.
OracleToExcel is a relatively straightforward software solution that simplifies this operation and enables users to export tables or queries to Excel spreadsheets in a few easy steps. It offers a decent set of features, but it needs better documentation.
Once you have established a connection to an Oracle database, the program displays an export dialog that allows you to select the desired task and begin saving data right away. You are given the option of exporting single or multiple tables, as well as queries.
The application guides you through the rest of the process, and you only need to configure a few export parameters before the operation is launched.
After setting up an export job, OracleToExcel enables you to save the session locally. This feature is very useful if you need to launch the same operation on a regular basis. It is even possible to create a batch file in order to load a certain session more easily.
Moreover, the program comes equipped with a task scheduler that can help you automate certain operations by configuring them to be launched at specific times or intervals.
Even though this is a very novice-friendly utility, users who are not too familiar with Oracle databases may still need some help performing various configurations. While a user manual is included, it is not as extensive as we would have hoped.
All in all, OracleToExcel is a reliable data conversion utility that enables you to export tables and queries from Oracle databases to Excel spreadsheets. It performs its job admirably, but it would benefit from a reworked user manual.

A reliable tool for Entity Framework and LINQ to SQL modeling that helps you to design and edit ORM models, without typing a line of XML code.
Entity Developer Express Edition is a comprehensive and practical ORM designer especially intended for database administrators and developers who need to create and edit NHibernate, Entity Framework, LinqConnect and LINQ to SQL models visually.
It helps you to create all kinds of mapping, starting from table splitting and inheritance hierarchies, and ending up with SELECT methods and statements.
When you launch the application for the first time, you need to create a new model, option which is available in the File menu. You can either design models from a pre-existing database or simply generate a new database from the model. In case you choose the ‘Database first’ option, you need to select the provider, browse for the proper file, then test the connection.
The ‘Model Explorer’ section, located in the left pane of the program, displays all of the available classes, inheritances, methods, stored procedures, constraints and tables. The right-click menu enables you to add a new class, drag it into the main window, then insert new properties and associations, create a new storage and map the stored procedures.
Each time you are editing an existing ORM model, Entity Developer Express Edition highlights all the errors and warnings and list them in the ‘Error List’ section. This way, you will notice if the current model is not working properly, and after removing all the errors, you can press the ‘Validate’ button in order to refresh the entire information.
Furthermore, the application enables you to create your own unique templates for the application code generation or use one of the existing. By accessing the proper option from the Model menu, you are able to generate DbContext and ObjectContext classes, ASP.NET MVC controller with data access code etc.
To wrap it up, Entity Developer Express Edition introduces new approaches for creating, designing and editing ORM models, thus facilitating the development of database applications.

Web-enable your desktop applications with this Citrix alternative, manage remote sessions, print documents, check event logs and server properties in an easy manner.
Designed to provide developers and administrators with a robust alternative to Citrix and Windows Remote Desktop Services, TSplus (short for Terminal Service Plus) makes it possible for any Windows workstation to become a terminal server. It can be used for web-enabling desktop applications and thus create web-based interfaces that anyone can access via a web browser, without having to install the application itself.
The TSplus Administrator Tool is the central piece, providing a user-friendly dashboard that provides one-click access to all the server configuration settings and Windows tools that you might need at one point.
It enables you to check the status of the web servers, manage running sessions, users and groups, tamper with server properties, manage client connections and permissions, as well as security-related options. The configuration settings can be backed up and restored if needed, and the server can be restarted with the push of a button.
Thanks to TSplus, it is possible to allow remote access to your local applications via a web browser. In other words, any HTML5 or Java-enabled browser can be used to access your app remotely , regardless of the platform or device, providing the end user has permission.
The major advantage of such a solution is related to cost; developers don’t need to spend time and resources creating new platform-specific applications. Remote applications accessed via the TSplus gateway portal look and work exactly the same as a native app.
TSplus features advanced application control and load balancing, ensuring that connections are backed up. As for security, it comes with authentication support, SSH tunneling and port forwarding, encrypting all the communications and data transfers.
Another benefit is related to the integrated Windows Client Generator, which enables the admin to create a portable remote connection client with all the settings. Thus, it is not necessary for the end user to remember the configured parameters to connect to the remote server.
All of the above functions are just a few highlights of what TSplus can do. With customization options for the Web Access pages, advanced server access control tools, Active Directory support, an integrated universal printer, and a user-friendly web applications portal, TSplus becomes a serious competitor for similar solutions that are more complex and require specialized knowledge to configure and manage.
