iConnect consists of:

- a methodology for developing enterprise applications;
- a set of specifications;
- Carthag, a PHP 5 platform for enterprise applications;
- CBM (Carthag Business Modules), an enterprise application server like EJB, with persistence, o/r mapping, dao, remote interface;
- IxAS (Ix Application Server), a servlet like web application server running over Apache, handling webapps;
- Ampoliros, a portlet-like portal server engine;
- a number of other frameworks and tools.
