ExtraView was designed to meet the issue-tracking needs of companies, from the smallest to the largest global corporations. First released in mid-1999, the web-architected product has matured and demonstrated through time and through thousands of implementations that it meets the demands of its customers, no matter how complex. The platform is hugely scalable, operating on top of industry-standard hardware and operating system components. ExtraView is a J2EE software product that does not rely on any proprietary extensions within the supported application server environment.
ExtraView is a Java-based software program complying to J2EE standards that is implemented as a servlet that resides on a server. It uses a back-end database to store all information. User interaction is motst typically gained via a standard Internet browser. The software is built using industry standards wherever possible. The software is mature and is highly scalable to meet the needs of small to the largest enterprises. Several API's are built into the architecture of the software, enabling connectivity to virtually any other software.
ExtraView is installed on industry-standard hardware. The only hardware limitations are that the database of your choice must be supported by its author on your hardware, and that Java can be installed.
