Smarts

SMART was developed for a hot start company in California, which is division of a fortune 100 company. It offers an integrated configuration for businesses that require a pure, uninterrupted, on-site energy supply. SMARTS facilitates the remote diagnoses and configuration of power supply devices.

Challenge

The biggest challenge in developing SMART was to write “Standard Device Drivers” to communicate with power devices such as generator and UPS. Another challenge was to communicate with power devices remotely while using modem and Ethernet as communication medium.

Solution

XML was used to standardize device drivers so that any device supporting Modbus protocol can use these drivers to communicate remotely.

Benefits

Web Dimensions

Web Dimensions was developed for US healthcare industry for First Report of Injury of workers. It supports different requirements for all 50 US states. The user can report injury and view/print report using his/her browser. This system was developed using Java, XML/XSL and Servlets technologies. This product is very flexible from configuration aspect. An XML based markup language is used to store the configuration of the database, connectivity, input forms, form validation rules etc. A number of tools are being developed for this system so that it can be tailored to the specific needs of health care provider and/or government agencies.

Challenge

Major challenge was to design forms and display them on XML compatible and non XML compatible browsers. At the time, when this project was developed, XSL was still evolving and there was no flexible visual ID to design complex forms.

Solution

For this project we developed different tools like XFL Cafe, a visual ID for designing forms, XFL Mapper for IE, a tool/component of Web Dimensions that converts the XFL to XSL which confirms the IE standards, XSL Viewer, a tool/component that helps users to view the First Report of Injury (form) using a non-XML browser, PDF generator, a java application which is used on the server side and generates the PDF files from XML and XSL files by using the Acrobat Distiller.

Benefits

Insurers can use Web Dimensions to give their customers personalized, 24/7, secure, password-protected ability to report incidents over the Internet with simple point and click commands. Accurate information can be instantly transmitted via email for case management to TPA's, insurance carriers and risk managers, enabling early effective action on claims.
