Modernizing the Frontend of a Banking Application with Eclipse Scout
This session presents a successful modernization project at the Raiffeisen banking group Switzerland to replace a JSP based framework for 10'000 users with an open source solution.
This session first presents the application that has been modernized and motivates the decision for Eclipse Scout as a replacement for the old JSP based framework.
Then, we describe the project setup and the technical approach for the modernization. In the case of this project an initial automated migration of the dialogues was followed with a manual migration phase for the front-end business logic and the wiring with the application's back-end.
Based on a specific dialog of the application, we explain the automated migration step that transformed a JSP form to a running Eclipse Scout components and talk about the process of defining which tasks to automate and which tasks to leave for the manual migration step.
The session concludes with the lessons learned and a set of recommendations for future, similar modernization projects.
