System specifications

Software categories Purely web-based Learning Content Management System (LCMS), consisting of an authoring system for the creation of e-learning units, SCORM-compatible Learning Management System (LMS) for the administration of e-learning projects and document management systems (DMS) as well as the add-on modules AcademyManager (management of classroom training sessions) and AcademyLive (management of webinars).
Software Architecture AcademyMaker is a web application in multi-layer architecture realized by using Java Enterprise Technologies and Struts-Framework of Apache. Therefore, a simple integration in heterogeneous systems and software environments is provided and – if necessary – can be easily extended by individual modules or AcademyMaker enhancements (e. g. interfaces for existing systems).
Integrated Products For some content management functionalities the HTML5-WYSIWYG CK Editor is used. The add-on module AcademyLive for provision of webinars is being deployed by the tool FastViewer.
Database The database is structured in a data file and the file system of the server. MySQL-DB (Version 5.1) is used as data file. The use of other database systems is possible. The MediaCenter (Document Management System) of AcademyMaker uses the file system of the server to store its folder and file structure on the hard drive.
Application Server Currently, JBoss Application server (version 6.1) is used.
