Fairfax Imaging Selects JNBridgePro to Accelerate Java Integration for .NET-based Mail Order Pharmacy Solution Provider
Fairfax Imaging solves the complex task of integrating Java and .NET systems to enable multiple on-time implementations
Boulder, Colorado, January 31, 2011
JNBridge, (www.jnbridge.com), the award-winning provider of Java and .NET Framework-based interoperability tools, has been selected by Fairfax Imaging (www.fairfaximaging.com), a leading provider of document and forms management solutions, to integrate its premier .NET-based software product, Quick Modules, with a third-party Java-based Pharmacy Benefits Management (PBM) system, to meet a customers rigid deployment schedule.
As a leader in forms and document processing, Fairfax Imaging is accustomed to integrating its NET-based software product into different customer environments. However, for a prospective client — a large mail-order pharmacy — its professional services team faced a new challenge: quickly deploy a fully integrated solution into the customer’s Java-based enterprise within a matter of months.
Fairfax’s Quick Modules is based on a pure .NET framework-based infrastructure, so the company employs a staff of developers with deep experience in Microsoft development tools. The mail-order pharmacy client, on the other hand, uses a third-party Java-based PBM system to track prescriptions, patient data and benefits information. To implement the Quick Modules software and provide the customer with a fully functional solution, Fairfax Imaging needed to integrate the PBM system’s Java API with its .NET infrastructure — it needed an easy way to expose data from the client’s Java-based system to the Quick Modules software stack.
Using proxy generation tools supplied with JNBridgePro, Fairfax Imaging’s developers built proxy classes for the third-party Java API. The developers could then call the Java API via those proxies, incorporating them into the .NET code just as if they were native library calls. In this way, JNBridgePro streamlined an otherwise complex integration task and provided an easy way for Quick Modules to access the pharmacy customer’s prescription, patient, and benefits information.
“JNBridgePro bridged the gap between our customer’s Java platform and our .NET infrastructure in an efficient and seamless manner,” said Donna Schmitz, director professional services for Fairfax Imaging. “JNBridge quickly solved the interoperability problem for us both quickly and cost-effectively, allowing us to integrate our product and deliver an implementation within an extremely tight project deadline for one of our valued customers.”
JNBridgePro solved the problem of cross-platform interoperability for Fairfax Imaging, adding to the company’s arsenal of integration capabilities. In addition, soon after the completion of this project, Fairfax Imaging subsequently used JNBridgePro to integrate Quick Modules successfully into another mail-order pharmacy client with the same Java-based PBM back-end.
“Today more than ever, cross interoperability between Java and .NET is critical to achieving and delivering successful software development products,” said Wayne Citrin, CTO of JNBridge. “Customers such as Fairfax Imaging appreciate JNBridgePro’s ability to retain their current investments while building applications that incorporate best-of-breed components from both platforms.”
