eXtropia has simplified complex technology by packaging
software into over 250 modular components that make up the
Application Development Toolkit (ADT). This easy-to-assemble
toolkit can be used to build complex interactive web sites
quickly by joining the components like Lego bricks to form
Custom web solutions for your business
With its library of over 250 development components,
eXtropia has assembled 25 Perl and Java-based
web applications that can be accessed on the web, on WAP phones
and can be installed out-of-the-box on any website.
Most clients require multiple integrated applications
rather than single applications. The modular nature
of eXtropia's applications makes it possible to pick and
choose the applications that you want.
Integration always includes the use of
eXtropia eXconnect™ technology and
will allow the applications to share
data and talk to each other.
eXtropia also offers several industry-spanning
web solutions for small business,
and telcos and service providers.

For example, consider application security. Most web
applications require some means to register and validate users
using user names and passwords. Often, the integration of a
security framework to register new users and login existing
users can take weeks of development time. Furthermore, mistakes in
development of authentication functionality can cause dramatic
security holes in production applications.
To solve this dilemma, eXtropia provides an authentication
component that can be plugged instantly into any web
application. Using the eXtropia Auth component, a developer
can do in three to four hours what it traditionally took several weeks
to do. Furthermore, because the authentication component is shared
between applications and between users, security and feature
enhancements can be done once for all users. Thus, clients
easily leverage the development work performed by any other
member of the client or developer community.
Fortunately, using the eXtropia ADT is exceptionally easy.
Web developers of all abilities can build complex web sites by
simply plugging together the different components. This makes
application building as standardized as assembly line
automobile manufacturing, with the corresponding benefits of
speed, cost saving and consistency.
Yet the software can also be built upon to produce very
specialized applications for very complex functions. The code
within the components used to build the applications give the
advanced programmer powerful tools for building, configuring
and customizing extremely functional solutions quickly.
The ability to design complex systems with eXtropia technology
was demonstrated at Barclays Capital in 1999 when eXtropia founders
Birznieks and Sol constructed full-service financial trading
systems for multiple instruments including FX, equity
financing, bonds, and gilts.
The modular design of the applications means that each module
can work independently of the others. This makes the
application very strong, as it can be modified with minimal
disruption to the business operations.
Important components of the eXtropia ADT include:
Manages data from a database (Oracle, MySQL, Sybase,
MSAccess, etc), an XML stream, or a file system.
Provides session management, such as the storage of
products in a virtual shopping cart.
Contains tools to perform shipping, tax, and discount
calculations, as well as tools to perform many types
of e-payment from Cybercash to Echeck.
Provides a simple interface to allow users to report
application events. Reports can be emailed, logged
to a data source, or even sent to pagers, mobile phones, or
Personal Data Assistants (PDAs).
Provides mail read/write functionality for any application.
Integrates any application with encryption MD5 hashes to
crypt, PGP and digital certificates.
Allow any application to handle incoming data in work flow specific
ways such as checking for valid emails, credit cards, dates,
Modify outgoing GUI elements such as translating pages from
English to French.
