Application Examples of the zen Platform

A good development and runtime environment for the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) has to meet various requirements in order to provide added value in the short and long term:

  • Flexibility: The software must be capable of adapting to changing business processes and underlying technical conditions. It needs to provide effective support for any possible transaction.
  • Integration: The software must integrate seamlessly with legacy systems and easily link up to third-party systems.
  • Efficiency: Even high-quality software must be able to be developed and maintained rapidly and at a low cost.
  • Scalability: The software must be adapted to meet new requirements and expand with them, if necessary.

The zen Platform is a model-based J2EE development and runtime environment for developing server-based software. On the basis of these basic requirements it was designed to serve as flexible platform for business critical applications.

Variable Deployment

Given the zen Platform's flexibility and scalability, its deployment possibilities are virtually unlimited, making it the best basis for economical and efficient software development. Possible fields of application include interactive web applications or business critical banking and insurance solutions communicating via web services. The zen Platform is ideal as well for any kind of eBusiness and eCommerce.


The following applications are cited merely by way of example without covering the entire range of possibilities:

  • Data forms: from one-page contact forms to interactive questionnaires consisting of several pages.
  • Online marketing: shop solutions or marketing systems for shopping cart products as well as for complex products which require additional explanations, such as insurance products which are sold using a guided step-by-step process.
  • Online banking: complex personalized applications involving a large number of requests which are system critical, require asynchronous feedback processes and need to be scalable.
  • B2B data integration: applications without user interface exchanging data on a technical level using web services or proprietary interfaces.
  • Information systems: information systems with search and request functions, which, on the basis of one application, are able to output results (e.g. invoices) in any given format (e.g. HTML, WAP, PDF) while providing the same functionalities as a web service as well.


Other types of use may be based on specific business or technical conditions for which the zen Platform can offer a solution:

  • Time-to-market: Rapid application development seamlessly follows the rapid prototyping phase, regardless of the type of application.
  • Load-based scaling: For applications which initially have to process only few requests, but will have to cope with a large number of requests and guarantee failure-safety later on.

Due to the flexibility of the model-based development, all applications developed on the zen Platform can be easily adapted to changed conditions, irrespective of whether these are of a technical or business-related nature.
