SOA based Software Development fo advantageaustria.org
The AWO’s internet portal (http://austriantrade.org) is a modern information and communications platform. Austrian companies are able to effectively present themselves and their products on an international forum and in any language. The receipt and uploading of such information have to be as quick and simple as possible, to assist both the company and the AWO staff. Worldwide, more than 40 editorial offices with specific requirements were integrated in the project.
The project was won together with the general contractor, the Gentics Software GmbH. The editing and administration of the AWO internet portal is based on a Content Management System (CMS) Gentics® Content.Node® of Gentics Software GmbH. S&T Austria developed and integrated an on-line marketplace application as an interface to the CMS, adapted to the requirements of the AWO and its editorial offices. The technology base for the application
is JAVA EE.
The AWO provides Austrian firms with a convenient facility to create a speci-
fic marketing profile tailored to their needs and to have its content put on-line
by the editorial office in the relevant country. The AWO offers translation of
the profile into the appropriate languages required by the firms as an additional
Benefit to the Customer
