Modern Customer Portal for eCommerce provider

We supported an eCommerce provider in the migration of more than a million customers to a new customer self-service portal. The new portal comprises a single-page application (SPA) in JavaScript that accesses the Java backend via a Hypermedia REST API (HATEOAS). Parts of the existing portal were integrated into the new portal to retain the complete functionality in corner cases.

Relaunch and migration of an eCommerce shop

We fully integrated an acquired eCommerce store into an existing Hybris shop system, migrating the complete customer account data, including addresses and vouchers. The goal: to allow expansion of the international customer base. The migration was performed without any need for downtime in the target shop, with the fully automated Hybris import running on multiple servers. By migrating the password-encoding algorithm, the migration was also transparent for customers. CMS content and individual icon sprites allow the new integrated shop to be individually branded.

B2B online shop relaunch

We completely rebuilt the online shop for a restaurant supplies wholesaler on the basis of the Hybris Commerce Accelerator, migrating existing data from the old system. This both eradicated technical debt and laid the foundations for a significant increase in non-food products. We supported this extension by adapting the various backend systems to the requirements of a very heterogeneous product range. The new online shop features completely reworked user experience with responsive design and navigation optimized for the product range, as well as improved maintenance of editorial content.

SW360 is a software component catalogue application developed by TNG. Recently, we updated SW360 to Java8 and newer versions of Tomcat, Liferay, Thrift and others. We made code and deployment ready for publication on github and developed new features.

Also the open source license scanner FOSSology has been further improved. For parts of it, we cooperated with the Linux Foundation.

Modern Routing for Legacy PHP Application

We replaced the existing static routing in a PHP customer portal for a telecommunications company. The new implementation uses a URL-based routing layer based on the Symfony framework. This enables our customer to define meaningful URLs, simplifying end customers' experience and further optimizing pages for search engines.

Open Source Publication

A JSON schema generator for REST interfaces, developed in co-operation with a customer using Jersey and Java 8, was published as an open source project on Github: github.com/Mercateo/rest-schemagen. The software flexibly supplies REST resources with HATEOAS support. The definitions of links and rights are configured directly in the Java code.
