Inside IBM, there are several projects relating to intermediaries. These mainly center on the transcoding or transforming data from one form into another, which is an application of intermediaries. Of course, some work at IBM focuses on developing methods for translating data, see Internet Transcoding for Universal Access, and other work focuses on developing transcoding products.

We have become aware of many projects related to or similar to WBI outside of IBM. Here are few:

  • OreO , a scheme for chaining proxies
  • Pluxy, a programmable proxy
  • RabbIT, a mutating web proxy
  • Active proxies, using the Http Protocol Extension Protocol
For a fairly comprehensive list of HTTP proxy projects, see Lycos.
