Front-End: Design & Technology Considerations

Single Page Application

  • Reusable Codes
  • More responsive application
  • Reduce load on Server
    • HTML loading etc.

Reasons for Client-Side Technologies Used

  • MVC for client side code
    • Making javascript codes modular
  • Backbone’s Router
    • Detects change in URL, which is needed in a SPA
  • Big community for open source support
  • Templating made easy with Underscore JS
  • Stubs are easy to create with backbone’s Model

Reasons for Server-Side Technologies Used

  • Simple interface with Service Mediation that uses TIBCO JMS
  • Low learning curve
  • Open-Source libraries that provide easy conversion from JSON to XML (vice-versa)

Back-End: Technical Complexity

Communication Model
This model depicts how messages are sent to and fro from our Bank Teller Application (Frontend) through the Enterprise Service bus to retrieve / store information in the database.


Integration with Front-End
This diagram shows the translation in message formats within our Teller Application which is used to interpret a SOAP Response or create a SOAP Request message.
