ISO/Bridge

ISO-8583 made easy

Implementing a jPOS based application usually requires some major development effort. If Java is your platform of choice and you already have a knowledgeable ISO-8583-savvy Java development team then jPOS, or better yet, jPOS-EE is certainly the way to go. You can even take advantage of our consulting services

But if yours is not a Java shop, or even if it is, but you just want to focus on your business logic without having to deal with low level ISO-8583 communications details, then ISO/Bridge is probably an alternative you ought to evaluate.

Contact us for further information.

From your application perspective, you just have to establish a socket connection to your ISO/Bridge instance and exchange XML formatted messages.

You can think of ISO/Bridge as a blackbox that sits between your application and the ISO-8583 host(s). It uses an extremely easy to implement XML-based protocol that simplifies the burden of dealing with ISO-8583 messages, bitmaps, channels, packagers, headers, multiplexers and the like.

ISO-8583 implementations come in many different standard versions and flavors. Even hosts running software from the same vendor usually have major differences, due to customization, different software versions and patch levels.

That's all there is to it, ISO/Bridge takes care of connecting to your remote host, multiplexing that connection, handle timeouts and reconnections, etc. you just have to focus on getting the right content into each field according to your specifications.

In addition to XML, we can extend ISO/Bridge in order to interface with your SQL database, message oriented middleware or just setup a filesystem based message exchange.

ISO/Bridge is a commercial product that bundles turn-key software plus consulting services that will assist you during the configuration and setup of your ISO-8583 link.

(You can extend these services in order to have online assistance from our expert team during your certification process as well as further production second level support)
