Enterprise-class architecture. In your hands.

PrintWe use Java, the global standard for developing and delivering embedded and mobile applications, web-based content, and enterprise software. Unlike outdated systems using PHP and server-based software, we decided to use Java to efficiently develop, deploy and use exciting applications and services in a cloud-based environment. We use a spring framework. Spring helps development teams everywhere build simple, portable, fast and flexible systems and applications.

We write clean, testable code you can use with confidence – Spring provides an open programming model that is comprehensive, cohesive, widely understood and well-supported. The Spring Framework provides a comprehensive programming and configuration model for modern Java-based enterprise applications – on any kind of deployment platform. A key element of Spring is infrastructural support at the application level: Spring focuses on the “plumbing” of enterprise applications so that teams can focus on application-level business logic, without unnecessary ties to specific deployment environments. Core support for dependency injection, transaction management, web applications, data access, messaging, testing and more are standard aspects of our application.
