Task

The company recognized that, to remain competitive and provide the best solutions to their existing customers, the desktop versions of two products currently written in Delphy needed to be upgraded and converted into cloud solutions using Java.

G5 Phoenix - a practical and effective system designed to integrate with the Department of Finance programs, Federal Revenue of Brazil and Municipalities.

Key features of the application include: tax calculations, report generation, integration with multiple systems, data import and export.

Loja Phoenix – business management software that enables companies to control and manage: product inventory and product supply, revenue and cash flow, invoice preparation and payments management.

Functions of the system: financial and account management, payables and receivables control, including client and procurement invoice tracking.

Solution

First Line Software applied modern technology methodology to ensure fast application performance, scalability and high-speed development. In particular, by using Java, and the REST-approach, the team was able to develop a cross-platform system that can be easily integrated with other systems as necessary.

Key Project Milestones

The project team even had to learn basic Portuguese!

Technological Solution

ApplicationG5 Phoenix was composed of several layers:

Loja Phoenix is made up of two modules – Loja and Loja Reports and both can be deployed independently on one or more servers.

  1. Database tier - provides access to information and is built on a MySQL database.
  2. Backend tier - provides the business logic of the system, includes access rights based on user levels, validates the information entered, and offers search capabilities. Built on application server Glassfish, it uses Spring (Data, Security), Hibernate and Apache CXF frameworks.
  3. Frontend tier - the client part of the application, written using JSF (Primefaces), Velocity, JQuery.
