Unlike most ERP projects, which aim at developing an out-of-the-box solution for end-users, JFire is also a robust and flexible software framework, facilitating the implementation of sector-specific applications. Highly customizable, JFire uses the latest technologies: JEE, JDO, Eclipse RCP.
The JFire platform consists of two main inter-related parts, the server and the client platforms, that are written entirely in Java. The whole architecture is modular-based, enabling users to utilize specific modules their business requires. The system also provides various distinct frameworks that help reduce development time as well as ensure high stability combined with low maintenance costs.
Thanks to its modular and multi-tiered client-server-architecture, JFire is very well suited as a platform for distributed systems which have nothing to do with ERP, too. Of course, these only use fundamental features like e.g. network communication, access rights control or user- & multi-tenant-management. And although the JFire project aims at customized sector-specific applications, it has several ready-to-use functionalities for small- and medium-sized enterprises.
Due to its elegant combination of platform strategy and ready-to-use components, JFire is well suitable for both large-scale industries and smaller companies.
