POCKET LIBRARY FEATURING NODE.JS
Jones eGlobal came to Quick Left to build a reference library application that could scale across many different platforms. The concept behind the “pocket library” was to create a white-labeled solution for expansion of the product offering. Expandable architecture was a paramount concern for the success of this application.
Cross Platform Support
From a technical standpoint, we had a high level of abstraction within this integration. We chose to divide the app out into three major responsibilities: service route handling, data management, and service integration. To ensure consistency throughout, we heavily relied on test-driven development.
Jones also wanted to be able to reuse this app for many different knowledge-based domains. Knowing this, we architected a huge configurable system that would allow them to easily build domain specific versions of the app. Providing one unified interface, we integrated with another third party API that allowed users to aggregate search results across different domains.
Test Driven Support
We built a robust Node architecture with SOAP integration. This provided an efficient server resource management, as well as mobile app distribution support. The completed system provides a proven solution for additional support.
