Software development with power and convenience
The SWAT framework is the technological basis for AKIOMA Offer Management – and much more. SWAT is also a development platform which you can use to individually extend AKIOMA’s range of functions and fully implement new applications for your business processes.
SWAT relies on multi-layer technology with service-oriented architecture (SOA). The database and 4GL programming language were created by Progress. The UI can be used with all established web browsers and resembles a native Windows client with regard to look & feel. An application server is responsible for client server communication.
The most important features of SWAT in detail:
SWAT combines the familiar strengths of business logic and the Progress database with the practical benefits of a web UI.
- The OpenEdge Reference Architecture by Progress (n-tier/stateless app server) is applied.
The UI logic is supported in the repository so that very little logic is required in the web frontend itself.
- Access to the business logic is integrated in the web frontend. All information about the data relationships come together in the backend.
High performance search and filter functions are available for all database fields.
- Access management can easily be applied to field and data levels.
Large range of additional function, e.g. drag & drop in the tree representation
Online shop application on the same database (HTML frontend)
Release stability by means of template customising
Open interfaces through SOA
