Glasgow City Council

Software Services
Client specification was for a Business To Business (B2B) Gateway to allow retrieval and reception of XML and cXML documents for the council's eProcurement system.
Brief was to architect and develop the Gateway with full support for XML/cXML validation, fall-over support, workflow queuing of documents and full reconcilliation reporting. Processed documents were submitted to SAP for processing by the council's incumbent legacy systems.
The Gateway was developed in .NET using C# and implemented as a set of Windows NT Services. A web based administration interface was created to allow start/stopping of the Gateway remotely, viewing and pruning of the Gateway log files and export of log reports to an Excel spreadsheet.
