Monsoon Consulting actively develops web-applications using various layers of the J2EE stack. Using J2EE gives us the flexibility to scale the applications to any level and on any platform. We use various application servers and web-containers. The most frequently used is Apache's Tomcat.
All Java web-applications developed by Monsoon Consulting are based on cutting edge technologies, such as Spring, Struts, JSTL and Velocity. Their usage allows avoiding excessive reliance on java-code in JSP pages and to separate business logic from the presentation level. Apart from that, we use an extensive home-developed custom-tag library created in the manner of JSTL (with the standardized attributes and expression language support).
This platform provides a convenient and flexible environment for applications running on hand held devices such as mobile phones or PDA's. Among other applications, Monsoon Consulting has developed a mobile platform and several applications including a mobile booking system and business card exchange application
Image & Media processing - These tool kits enrich Java with functions for advanced image, audio, and video processing. A major part of this functionality is that can be used on any platform where Java runs.
Using applets in Web-applications allows implementation of user interface features which are more typical for desktop applications. It also provides great opportunities for the development of cross-browser and cross-platform solutions. Monsoon Consulting's WYSIWYG HTML-editor, an applet built in several of our custom applications, is a good example. It is fully platform- and browser-independent and works on all the major browsers and under MacOS, Windows and UNIX/Linux.
