The OpenILL project is developing an open source, web-based system for managing inter-library loans.

Bronze Spear developed Java software to encode and decode ASN.1 messages in the ISO-10161 format -- the standard protocol for communications between ILL systems.

We used XML and WDDX to integrate the Java code with the rest of the OpenILL application, which was developed in ColdFusion.

OpenILL also called on Bronze Spear's software analysis and architecture expertise to help define a viable data model and messaging architecture.
