Short description:

The tasks of the transmission provider in the area of data exchange are increasing and require the simplest possible handling for import processes that cannot be automated or are difficult to automate. The project includes the implementation of simplified programming templates for standardized reports and other export files to be created, as well as the necessary database structures, dialogs to illustrate the collection of available reports and the possibility of editing the content of the associated explanatory pages for the individual reports . To further simplify customer communication, the employees of the transmission provider should be able to generate images of the spreadsheet files from the reporting data imported by portal users for verification purposes, with the help of which his customers (the portal users) generated the XML files used for data upload.


The transmission provider processes the EEG using a Java-based distributed application with the Apache TomEE application server and Oracle as the database.
