The Quest4Web product line is based upon an Enterprise Application Framework (EAF). The Q4W EAF provides a base framework of industry-neutral components which remain constant across all applications, as well as business specific framework components which are common to vertical industry sectors. These industry specific components typically focus around user interface nomenclature, preferences, validation constraints, business logic rules and database elements. Reference the Framework section for a detailed description of the application components.

The Enterprise Application Framework can be adapted as a solution for any industry sector. The following Application Frameworks are currently being supported:

Supply Chain -   Management of product throughout the transportation industry supply chain.
-     Business, B2B and B2C applications.
-          Financial oriented applications.
-          Web Services and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).
Public Service -  City & Local Services; State and Federal government applications (future).
Non Profit -           Volunteer and Non-Profit organization transaction applications (future).
Retail -               Retail oriented applications (future).

Wireless business applications are quickly emerging as a priority for today's mobile user. As such Q4W is responding to this critical business need by enhancing its product line to support mobile device users. The following provides a list of mobile devices supported.

Why Use a Framework? ... Image your on a new project, requirements are basically complete and your development resources are in place. You know the basic architecture and technology you want to use, but how do you comprehensively communicate this to the project staff so that all developers and testers begin from a common architectural starting point. Without a set of reusable objects already in hand will lead straight to the "File | New Project" syndrome.

Nearly every new business application needs a number of reusable, pre-tested objects related to user interface, business logic, data access and maintenance utilities. A solid Framework provides these upfront, thereby providing a consistent, repeatable and documented environment, which translates directly into a significant reduction in costs, schedule and project risk.

Up to 50% of your efforts can be saved by beginning with an already proven Framework.

A key characteristic of the Enterprise Application Framework is its flexibility ... the ability to adapt to changing business requirements and technology evolution. Here are additional areas in which a Framework adds value:

  • Facilitates upfront prototyping with end users
  • Trains developers by re-using the same patterns and code libraries
  • Enables more focused hiring decisions and provides new hires with a standard training platform and a reduced learning curve
  • Eliminates likelihood of code duplication
  • Facilitates more time to be spent on quality assurance, bug fixing and maintenance
  • Helps to ensure ISO 9001 compliance along with increasing the level of maturity as measured by the SEI Capability Maturity Model
  • Provides a stable environment for consistent remote development, including outsourced models
  • Reduces the backend software maintenance required
