Xenon is a next generation n-tier Java application with a single source code base. This technical architecture is key to providing clients with an extensible, agile and future-proof solution.
The Java platform enables Xenon to offer high performance, load balancing software ideally suited for larger energy trading operations.
A rich Java client is downloaded to each user’s workstation, and is connected (via a secure socket layer (“SSL”) and load balancer) to the JBoss application servers. On the third tier is Oracle, which provides a highly scalable database and computing layer using Oracle's RAC technology. The diagram below illustrates this new architecture.
Sakonnet has also built XIP, or the Xenon Integration Platform (XIP), an enterprise service bus (ESB) or middleware which enables fast, inexpensive and sustainable integration of Xenon to brokers, exchanges and market data providers. Xenon can also be linked via XIP or directly to customers’ own applications.
