Interchange is a complete web-based application server It can create, automate and database-enable your web-site, and build on-line applications. It can be used as part of a standalone system or as part of a larger system. The Interchange demo application is ecommerce-based, so ecommerce has inevitably become its main use. The ecommerce demo and admin system supports sales, order processing, content management, customer service, and has been implemented for traditional retail sales, digital goods delivery, B2B parts re-ordering, non-commerce content management, auctions, order status checking, and supply chain management (among others). It can be integrated with payment processing services, ERP systems, point-of-sale systems, accounting systems, external content management systems, and Java-based application servers (among others). Interchange is made up of the following components: database abstraction layer, a generic templating system, transaction routing rules, a customer information object, a universal localization scheme, a security blackout definition, profiles, filters, a search language, and session management.
