Leveraging RPC to tie together a mixed environment

When asked about his experience with SOLTECH, Joe Longoria, Regional Director at Fortent, responded, “We were looking for a local resource that had the capability to step in and take over development in an existing mixed environment. It helped that we were pleasantly familiar with SOLTECH, as we had previously used their resources from the staff augmentation side of their business.”

Faced with a mixed environment comprised of Java and .NET applications, Fortent was looking for a unique approach that would allow these legacy applications to remain intact, but provide access through a single sign-on that would also handle management of user entitlement to specified applications.

It was clear to Fortent that keeping the work local would give them reduced project preparation time. In addition, the perceived per hour savings, suggested by various offshore proposals would soon be lost in the distance and time zone disconnect prevalent with offshore projects.

Using a combination of AJAX, Java, JSTL, Spring and Hibernate, SOLTECH built a web based sign-on server that managed new users and controlled their roles and permissions. Using sophisticated session management in the local browser, a fast web services protocol (Hessian), plus a cache located on each SSO server (EhCache); SolTech minimized inter-server traffic and reduced the overall cost of expensive server resources.

SOLTECH delivered impressively on the core issues including central sign-on, central permissions, highly optimized inter-server communications, and a simple API allowing developers to add systems at a later date if necessary.
