Busyrails is a project that provides a framework for e-business infrastructure in a hosted environment. The goal is to provide services usefull to small retailers which enables them to participate in e-business. By e-business we do not mean a website with an on-line catalog of which there are plenty of examples, but a truly integrated business system, meant to operate over the internet in a distributed environment. A webinterface with on-line catalog is part of the solution, but it is merely an entry to the e-business infrastructure we are planning to provide.
BusyRails should put your "e"-business on rails in no-time.
Busyrails has been started on 22 feb 2006, so we are not there yet. A first release is planned in june 2007.
Technologies we are planning to use are:
- Spring framework
- JSF (MyFaces)
- Webservices (Axis)
First implementation steps
We will design our solution using standard UML diagrams and will document all stages in the evolution of the framework.
First high-level use-cases that will be implemented are:
- shop registration
- customer registration
- catalog maintenance
- on-line order process
Suggestions and comments are welcome.
