International Express Payment System uses WebSphere Application Server
technology that is a proven, high performance transaction engine to develop,
run, integrate and manage dynamic business applications. It is built on an open
standards-based infrastructure and utilizes the power of Service Oriented
Architecture (SOA) and other new technologies, such as Enterprise Service Bus
(ESB) to support its core business processes and integrate with customer payment
systems for flexible scalability and greater market responsiveness. With these
new technologies, the payment system provides the capability to make payments
across banks for the users who don't have an account with IexPay.
- Java Server Faces, the latest framework that eases the development of Java
based Web applications.
- Service Data Objects, a data-centric, disconnected, XML-integrated, data
access mechanism that provides a source-independent result set.
IexPay uses SSL, firewall, IBM edge components, and Verisign digital security
technology to ensure the user data's security. The users' password is stored in
DB2 in an encryption format to protect the integrity of the passwords.
IexPay's back end is IBM DB2 Server. The DB2's HADR feature and its high
performance ensure the system is running efficiently and safely.
The advanced platform assures that applications and data are safe, and can
essentially ensure near perfect continuous uptime for mission-critical
- J2EE 1.4, which makes it easier to develop and deploy applications using
industry standard tools
- Web Services Security, with broad support for Web services security
specifications and architectural support for plugging in and extending the
capabilities of security tokens
- High Availability Manager, which provides better scaling so more concurrent
users can access an application. This can help reduce administrative and
licensing costs for companies and provides better flexibility to quickly
bring additional user resources on board.
- A unified clustering framework that brings workload balancing,
dependability, and other benefits to the application servers in our system.
The IexPay's user accounts are managed by a partner bank of IexPay. After a user
account is opened, the account is managed by a partner bank so that the user's
funds can be protected in a secure, controlled environment.
