The Portal - technology behind it
How we think:
• Decentralise as much as possible
• Store as little personal data as possible
• Security and privacy by design
• Distributed architecture – scalability in view of growth
• Proven commercial off-the-shelf products (J2EE - JBoss,
MySQL/Oracle, Alfresco CMS)
How we communicate:
• Service-oriented architecture (SOA) - XML, SOAP/WSDL webservices (or potentially CORBA)
