Real Networks, Rhapsody

The Rhapsody Music Service allows its subscribers to legally download/transfer/burn over a million songs. The Rhapsody client software was built with many Boost libraries:

"Format: Boost.Format is top notch. Using it is a bliss.
Functional, Function, and Bind: These three libraries, along with smart pointer are the most used in our application. I could not imagine not having them handy.
Smart Pointer: Hands down, the most useful, and used library of the lot!
Date Time: Simple to use, effective, does the job. I love the flexible input string parsing facilities, and the human readable ISO output.
Iterators: Wow. Moving legacy iterating interfaces, or interfaces that should of been properly designed as iterators to STL compliant iterators was easy and painless. The gains in functionality to our code made by this library are invaluable.
Regex: When you need it, it works magic.
Thread: Used to implement the monitor pattern in key areas.
Preprocessor: Used to implement repetitive unit-test code generation. The codebase benefited greatly from the clarity boost.preprocessor brought."

Dr. Detlef Meyer-Eltz, TextTransformer

The TextTransformer is a Windows IDE for the generation of top down parsers with included c++ interpreter code for semantic actions. Both can be executed or debugged immediately on single source files or on groups of files. Generated parsers can be exported as c++ code including as well the interpretable code as any arbitrary other code. Tokens are defined as POSIX regular expressions and rules are defined in a similar syntax quasi as regular expressions of regular expressions. The construction of parse trees and their traversal is supported.

"The TextTransformer is essentially based on the Boost Regex library, by which the tokens for a parser can be defined. The Lexical Cast and the Format library are used for the integrated c++ interpreter. For the future also an interpreter version of the String Algorithm library is planned. The Program Options library will be used too to improve the command line version of the texttransformer."

Unlike traditional desktop management solutions, Paragent Manage avoids the complexity and cost of servers by using peer-to-peer communication between agents and the administrative console. This allows real-time inventory searching, alerting and software auditing in an easy-to-deploy and maintain package.

"We have used Boost extensively throughout our agent, including: Thread, Shared Pointer, Bind, Spirit, Date Time, String Algorithms, Multi Index, Filesystem.

Apart from some read_write_mutex issues we had, Boost has been a seamless part of our development, and has allowed us to develop and deploy a very complex, highly threaded networking agent with a built-in lisp-like xml-based scripting language all done in C++. Our entire development team would like to thank everyone for their hard work on behalf of C++ coders everywhere."
