  • What is StarNetwork

  • The Business Object Platform

  • Deployment Model

  • 4-Tier Architecture

  • Framework Components & Principles

  • Framework Support

  • Future Planing

  • Experience & Questions ?

  • Contents


  • The development of an internet based IT platform for all strategic applications of DaimlerChrysler on the retail level in addition to the Dealer Management System.

  • A platform to implement the digital sales channel for commercial users in Sales and After Sales

  • The integration of all strategic Service applications such as parts and service literature

  • What is StarNetwork ?


Current Retail Systems are implemented as Stand-Alone Applications, C/S Systems with Fat Clients or Host Applications.

Central

sources

Problems :

  • Various Platforms (Unix / NT / Host)

  • Expensive Data Update

  • Different User Interfaces

  • Non Standard Software Architectures

  • Expensive on-site Support

  • Insufficient Support for the Service and Sales Process Chains

  • Today’s Solutions

Central Systems concentrate in general on the Support of Vertical Processes (from Headquarters via Sales Channels up to the Retail Level and vice versa). For Retail, the Integration of Horizontal Processes (Customer Order, Service, ...) at the Sales Level is of crucial Importance as well.

STAR NETWORK Framework

Applications

Independent business applications each dealing with a specific business process. Applications communicate with other applications and tools via the STAR BUS

Tools

Reusable components that cover cross-functional aspects of a many business applications

like feedback, navigation, setup, vehicle identification, etc.

The STAR NETWORK platform enables the integration of different applications via a Common Framework (StarManager, StarBus,...)

System

  • Located in dealership or department

  • Client connection: high-bandwidth, low-latency

  • Application Server connection: low-bandwidth, high-latency)

  • Allows single IP management for all connected clients (for Firewalls)

  • Optimize performance by caching and use of local services

  • minimized onsite Administration

  • ...

  • Client could be connected to the Proxy Server

  • Services could be mapped to local machine

  • Client Logic is optimized for WAN communication (bandwidth and latency)

  • Requirements for each Tier

  • Located in Data Centers with high bandwidth Networks

  • Existing operative Systems (maybe unmodified)

    • Oracle Databases

    • Legacy Systems on OS/390 (CICS, DB2, IMS, IDMS)

  • CORBA Services

  • SAP R/3

  • ...

  • Located in Data Centers

  • Proxy connection: low-bandwidth, high-latency

  • BO Server connection: high-bandwidth, low-latency

  • Implementation of Application GUI-Services with access to BO

  • In-process optimization for native SN Services

  • Control of distributed transactions


The Client Side Java Framework provide a flexible Set of Services and Libraries for different Application Use Cases.

  • Client Side Features


The Server Side Java Framework provide Mechanisms for Services and Libraries for different Application Use Cases.

Security, System Management, DB Connection, Legacy Access, ...

  • Server Side Features


Users and their Application Authorization are Managed by one

Next Steps for the StarNetwork Java Architecture

Portability

Interoperability

  • Roadmap

  • Migrate to the strategic Applikation Server (SN Services as EJBs)

  • Transport Layer via IIOP

  • Interfacing with the Strategic System Management (Tivoli, ...)

  • Support for the strategic Integrated Development Environment


Current Experience with JDK 1.2.x one

  • 2D API isn’t usable (JDK 1.2.1), with JDK 1.2.2 SUN has reimplemented the hole API.

  • Printing

  • Applet signing & Java PlugIn

  • Performance

  • Memory Leaks (JProbe & WinNT Task Manager)

  • Swing List and many Elements

  • Don’t use Swing and AWT together

  • Internationalization & Unicode Resource Bundles (native2ASCII)
