Get to know the technology behind our EDI platform
Through the SaaS model, or "Software as a Service", technology service providers such as EDICOM provide companies with software applications, such as EDI platforms, installed in remote data centers.
This SaaS model means that users access them over the Internet, normally with a simple web browser, from which they can administer, manage, configure, and monitor their integrated electronic data interchange solution.
EDI solutions operating in the cloud are generally designed to integrate with the client company's ERP or management system. This involves setting up communications systems that allow data transfer between the management system and the EDI SaaS solution for a constant and automatic exchange of sent and received documents.
To take full advantage of the benefits of an EDI service in SaaS mode, it is necessary that the technology on which it is developed offers security in the processing and treatment of information and guarantees uninterrupted availability of the service.
What are the technologies used to develop our EDI SaaS software?
The programming language of our EDI software is Java. Spring is an open-source application development framework and inversion control container for the Java platform.
The database where the data of our EDI platform resides is managed by MySQL. MySQL is a relational database management system developed by Oracle Corporation and is considered the most popular open-source database in the world, especially for web development environments.
To manage database access to the EDI platform we rely on the Hazelcast tool. Hazelcast allows sharing of different data structures in a distributed way with flexible and convenient scalability (queue management, locks, distributed memory, etc.).
The indexing engine we use in our EDI platform is based on Elasticsearch. It is a Lucene-based search server. It provides a full text, distributed, multi-tenant capable search engine with a RESTful web interface and JSON documents.
As part of our 24x7 surveillance policies, we use tools such as Kibana for monitoring and analyzing logs, application performance, and optimizing alert management.
Vulnerability measurement is based on the international standard OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) and advanced measurement tools such as SonarQube.
CI/CD supported on Gitlab
CI/CD is a method of distributing applications to customers frequently using automation in the application development stages. The continuous integration and distribution process incorporates permanent automation and monitoring throughout the application lifecycle, from the integration and testing stages to the distribution and deployment stages.
At EDICOM we develop our EDI projects supported by this technology and methodology for error checking, testing, and quality measurement.
