JavaDICT is a server for the DICT protocol (RFC 2229), a TCP transaction-based query/response protocol that lets a client access dictionary definitions from a set of natural language dictionary databases. So far it is the only DICT server that lets you access dictionaries stored in a database (currently only PostgreSQL is supported).
