What we do

Java & JEE

We have great experience in developing complex Java applications running on different operating systems. Amongst our biggest strengths is the customization of the user interface with Swing or JavaFX, but also the performant processing of data in a networked environment.

Grails & Groovy

Grails / Groovy is our preferred technology to build complex web applications based on databases. With its flexibility and the short development turnaround times it's very well suited to react rapidly and without big efforts to changing requirements.

C / C++

To satisfy the highest demands on performance, reliability, and scalability we rely on the strengths of C++ on Linux in networked environments.

What we did

Some of the projects we have worked on during the last 15 years.
