Team GSPANN designed a Java-based in-house tool for the client’s internal users with business-specific functionalities for catalog content management. These functionalities include the features that Oracle Commerce Cloud offers along with some add-ons, such as creating a rule table with multiple reusable components to define/edit rules that Oracle Commerce Cloud does not provide.
We developed the tool with reusable UI components to cater different business requirements. It facilitates cloud readiness, Continuous Delivery (CD), and DevOps best practices, and is based on a service-oriented architecture with aspects of microservices. It has creative menus that allows content to load dynamically on each page. The application handles a vast amount of data via server-side rendering to improve the performance and ‘lazy loading’ on content-intensive pages.
The tool also has a WYSIWYG editor that provides multiple options to format the pasted or typed data. The dashboard page has different widgets to show priority information and helps in navigating to the respective pages. The rule table feature for creating and updating rules in the application speeds up the overall process.
We developed a pixel-perfect user interface (UI) for this tool that leverages animations to deliver a pleasing experience to the users. It also has a custom validation framework that gives meaningful error messages on the page to help the users to make corrections.
The new tool enables a business user to manage the placement and display of products, promotions, rich media, and other forms of content spotlighting. The same content can be used in any number of locations on a site or across multiple sites within the application, decreasing the time and effort of creating and maintaining the content. Besides, it presents the most relevant content to the visitors at each step of the online experience based on their searches.
