Adobe Flex and Adobe Air
Adobe® Flex™ is an open source framework for highly efficient Rich Internet Application (RIA) development. Applications built in Flex serve as the presentation layer in a multi-tiered model. Unlike standard HTML pages, Flex applications do not require loading a new page. The applications communicate with common server-side technologies such as .NET and PHP.
Adobe® AIR™ is cross-operating system runtime that enables developers to use proven web technologies to build and deploy rich Internet applications to the desktop. Developers can use Adobe Flash, Adobe Flex, HTML, or Ajax for building branded desktop applications.
Here are some attributes Adobe Flex/Adobe AIR will enhance your application:
• Browser independent / browser free
• Well designed re-useable and highly efficient component architecture
• Improved user experience
• Fully engaged desktop application functionality
AJAX SOA: Added Value for Enterprise Applications
Rich web interfaces add more value to next-generation enterprise applications designed on the progressive Services Oriented Architecture (SOA). AJAX is the advanced interface technology providing extended visual service, desktop interactivity and functionality. It adds value to SOA through better user interaction with both remote (internet, extranet) and local (intranet) enterprise applications. Adding RIA (Rich Internet Application) to existing enterprise IT infrastructure presents several benefits including operation cost savings, better control over document circulation and improved security.

Rich Internet Applications
Increased demand on enhanced web-users experience together with interactive software development evolved into appearance of Rich Internet Applications (RIAs). RIAs, according to Adobe definition, are applications that combine improved user interface and functionality of desktop software, accessibility and low-cost deployment of Web-based applications and the best of interactive, multimedia communication.
Compared to standard HTML-based applications, RIAs empower your business with solutions that are more:
Unlike HTML applications that often need several pages reloads for an action completion, RIAs enable seamless and interactively controlled stages transitions that do not distract users from an action end goal.
RIAs technologies give excellent background for development of compelling user interfaces that are completely focused on your and your customers needs, having the application design optimized for the purpose it serves.
Due to specific technologies used, RIAs simplify complex processes (like registration or purchasing), save bandwidth and perform considerably faster than traditional Web applications, thus enhancing customers’ online engagement, guidance and feedback.
Dynamically adjusting their behavior by capturing, maintaining and using of contextual information, RIAs interactively deliver users exactly what they need and greatly reduce their workload, time and effort spent on targeted actions performance, acting as intelligent customers’ assistants rather than mere tools.
Thus, the essence of RIAs is the ability to bring online users full-featured functionality compared to this of a desktop application via interactive, intelligent and truly reach interface. RIAs eliminate such limitations of standard Web applications as low HTML interactivity, data entering, processing and retrieval problems, scalability complicities and feedback loops. Moreover, RIAs give enterprises qualitatively new platform for various types of content distribution as they allow allocation of text, images, audio and video data in the most effective and yet convenient, user-oriented way.
Combining deep knowledge of technology with commitment to our customers’ business, egeSoft is focused on delivering comprehensive RIA. RIA development process at egeSoft embraces best analytics, design, development and delivery practices.
Web 2.0 is a broad umbrella concept covering a great number of areas ranging from web site design and software architecture to new business models. It combines a wide range of technological and social trends which form the new Internet and a new class of web applications.
Technologies themselves are not what Web 2.0 is about. Revolutionary new ideas are at the bottom of Web 2.0. It embraces quite a number of social phenomena like social networking, user-generated content and collective intelligence. And technologies which become popular in the Web 2.0 era are merely the means to make it easy for everyone to participate, share and create. Therefore blogs, social bookmarking and networking sites are some of the most popular online destinations nowadays.
Since 2004, when the term “Web 2.0” was used for the first time, it has transformed from an IT buzzword into a mainstream trend which affects both individuals and enterprises. Developing software, as well as doing business, in the Web 2.0 era demands from us to adjust to the realities of the new Web.
Web 2.0 Software
Web as a Platform
One of the key principles of Web 2.0 – the Web as a platform – states that now the Web can serve as an operating system. This introduces new benefits for both software vendors and customers and allows building new products and services by bringing desktop functionality capabilities to the web , enhancing and improving existing websites’ and applications’ functionality and performance.
Rich User Experience and Usability
The Web 2.0 era gave rise to a new term in web development – mash-up, also referred to as a composite, or hybrid, web application or page. A constantly growing number of web sites are releasing XML feeds (such as RSS or Atom) and APIs which enables developers to mix and match them to create entirely new, unique and innovative services based on third-parties’ data.
Architecture of Participation
The most popular Web 2.0 projects confirm the fact that the easiest way to make your customers your product’s evangelists is to let them participate in its creation and development. “The architecture of participation”, which lies at the core of YouTube, Wikipedia, Digg and many other successful Web 2.0 websites, enables them to not only get millions of visitors daily, but also to put to good use the “collective intelligence” effect developing a rich pool of valuable data generated by users themselves.
Web 2.0 software is shifting from software packages to ongoing services that are always on and at the same time are being constantly refined and improved. This introduces a new approach to updates and enhancements that can be delivered monthly, weekly or even daily without interrupting web system operation. In “the perpetual beta” model the users are co-developers and real-world testers of applications, since software vendors now can gather their feedback and thus produce the service which always meets current customers’ needs and preferences.
Web 2.0 Development
With broad experience gained over 9+ years of our operations egeSoft is ready to help you meet the requirements of the new generation of the Web delivering: Next-generation Portals Rich Internet Applications Composite Applications Software as a Service Applications Enterprise Mash-ups.
Business Strategy Assessment
We work closely with clients to define their business vision and strategy to plan, implement and support their Web 2.0 initiatives. We identify business objectives and the benefits that Web 2.0 can provide and develop a detailed roadmap for solution implementation.
Technology Assessment and Architecture
The complex Web 2.0 technology infrastructure presupposes considerable complexity in application implementation, testing and support as compared to traditional web applications. When designing technical architecture we pay special attention to proper selection and effective usage of various Web 2.0 methods, frameworks and techniques including server-side software, client-side software, RSS, web protocols, valid XHTML markup, ActiveX controls, applets, real-time push, Web Services, APIs, etc.
Implementation, Support and On-going Improvement
Based on the roadmap and architecture developed during the assessment stage we deliver solutions with comprehensive business logic, efficient performance, business and technical scalability. After the initial launch of the system we help clients grow and improve the solution by seamlessly integrating new features and services on top of existing functionality.
egeSoft has always taken an uncompromising position in respect to quality. egeSoft’s Quality Management is a complex set of engineering and managerial activities that ensures the high quality of delivered software through the entire workflow.
egeSoft Quality Management Tasks and Objectives:
Elaboration and implementation of procedures and regulations for software development process based on the industry best practices and standards Product life-cycle monitoring to ensure compliance with established processes and guidelines Product quality verification and validation to ensure its correspondence with the client needs and expectations Establishment of an effective collaboration of all production participants
Independent QA Phase
egeSoft’s QA department is an independent structural subdivision. Our QA team consists of skilled QA engineers and experienced testers that are involved into the projects on a dedicated or as-needed basis. QA engineers’ allocation depends on the project size and complexity. If it is required they can be easily switched from one project to another. Such flexibility let us optimize project efforts and correspondingly the overall project budget. The QA team is not accountable to the project manager allowing them to provide the best input to the development process.
• Full-cycle QA Testing
• Document and Code Reviews
• Defect Tracking
• Configuration Management Process
• Monitoring Risk Management
Simultaneous Development and QA
egeSoft conducts quality assurance procedures throughout the full software lifecycle. QA team members are involved at all project iterations. Lead QA specialist is allocated from the initial stage of the project and involved into initial business analysis and requirements specification. This simultaneous interaction of the development and QA teams ensures a better understanding of the project scope and the client’s business objectives. Typical QA lifecycle includes the following phases:
Initiation and Planning
The responsible QA person studies the project specification, starts test plan elaboration and plan assignment of the QA team members for specific tasks
Initial testing of first development deliverables. The project test plan and test items refining (if necessary)
On-going testing of intermediate iterations builds
Final Verification and Validation
The final product thorough testing to ensure the final quality and readiness for deployment
QA process may include different test types to ensure increased QA depth:
• Functional and Regression Testing
• GUI and Usability Testing
• Accessibility Testing
• Compatibility Testing
• Performance Testing
• Installation/Configuration Testing
• System/Integration Testing
• Security Testing Internationalization/Localization Testing
• User Acceptance Testing (UAT)
egeSoft’s development methodology provides a structured framework aimed at delivering high quality software solutions to clients. Over the past 10+ years we have developed a store of knowledge through hundreds of development projects. We have refined our business process by blending the best industry practices like Rational Unified Process (RUP), Rapid Application Deveopment (RAD) and Agile Methodologies. We develop on time and within budget, all the time!
The main foundations of our methodology are:
Strong Project Management
From the very beginning of a project it has a project manager so a client can solve all project-related issues through the only person. Project Manager is involved into requirements definition when a project starts up. His/her routine responsabilities are project planning, team management, early project risks definition / elimination and reporting to client. All our projects report to our CEO and CTO on a regular basis.
Thorough Requirements Analysis
At egeSoft we pay special attention to requirements definition process. This guarantees that we deliver final results that meet clients’ specific requirements. We use several levels of requirements description:
• Business Vision
• Product Vision
• Functional Specifications
• Use Cases
• Refined Development Process
egeSoft follows a complete Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) process with distinct phases. egeSoft employs full control of procedures at every phase to mitigate project risks and ensure efficient performance and high quality project implementation.
Constant Quality Monitoring
At egeSoft we are dedicated to high quality on every project from its start up to delivery. Depending on a project size we allocate a testing team and define a timeframe for its work. This allows optimizing resources involvement and thus project costs. QA experts work independently from development team yet in close cooperation with it.
