JobSpan Print Production Scheduling and Planning

Technology Used

The Jobspan System is written using JavaScript, and Java Server Pages with associated TAG libraries written in Java. Access to the SQL database is via a JDBC interface within the Java Tag libraries.

The systems currently installed use an Oracle Application Server (Apache), and its embedded JSP technology, connected to an Oracle database on both HP Unix and Linux hosts.

Essentially any Java enabled Web Server can be used to host the system, such as Tomcat to provide Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies.

The demo data has been ported to a MySQL database and is hosted on Tomcat running behind Apache.

The system operates best in Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 6 or greater. A browser is all that's required to run the system from a client machine, so installation and updates are only required on the server.
