Technology

The main concept applied in choosing the technology and methodology was to preserve over time the value of the software. We therefore produced a software as independent as possible from operating systems, relational databases, browsers, web servers and any other technology.  Standard methodologies were used to cover all aspects of the development: naming conventions (for classes, methods, attributes, files, tables, fields, etc.), user interface look and feel, user interface functions, class hierarchies, etc.

The entire development was done using ANSI C++ language. The whole application is object-oriented.

Recently C# has been adopted as the programming language for new developments.
The ANSI SQL is generated by a layer which can be adapted in the event that we need to change our SQL, without modifying the application.

riskart®is a web application that is 100% server-based. The pages contain html code with only little JavaScript.

riskart® does not use any specific middleware or third party software, unless specifically requested by the client.
