Hospitals, Buses and Funeral Parlors

Button is an IT company from Catalonia (Spain) that has developed several OpenXava applications in the last years, such as a management application for Monbus.cat, a bus company (150 users), a complaints and suggestions record system for the Hospital Comarcal de l'Alt Penedès, a funeral parlor system, or a management system for IT companies, among others.

A principal developer from Button, Xavier González, says that they chose OpenXava because:

  • The speed for creating a web application from Java classes, without creating the database. Just writing business logic.
  • Relatively short learning curve.
  • Documentation in Spanish.
  • Open Source.
  • Forum support with a large community in Spanish and English.
  • When the default features are not enough you have the option to extend OpenXava yourself.
  • Integration with JasperReports.
  • Multi language.
  • Multi-scheme.
  • Supports for multiple databases, such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, etc.
  • With the same code, you get a mobile web application.
  • Project that continually releases new versions, and incorporates improvements and fixes from users.
  • To create simple application, you don't need to touch HTML, JavaScript or AJAX, just Java.

English NGO helping Africa 

The English NGO Evidence for Development, part of the Walker Institute, are using OpenXava to create a data entry and reporting application to be used in the field in Africa. The application maintains data recorded in African villages. The data produces an economic model of the village. The model is used when weather, drought, war or other disasters place the villagers under threat.

The head of development for this project, David Brown, says that they chose OpenXava because:

  • Cloud or standalone deployment.
  • Open source code and ability to work with other open source products such as MySQL and Tomcat.
  • Uses a language taught in most Universities - Java.
  • Multiuser.
  • Multi-organization.
  • Robust.
  • A quorum of developers providing forum based support with paying for support as an option.
  • An agile approach to software development.
