The eiConsole for OpenTravel – the Developer’s IDE
The eiConsole for Open Travel is an integrated development environment (IDE) for developers and technical business analysts that offers an intuitive paint-by-numbers approach. It has been engineered expressly for OpenTravel-compliant XML messaging and offers a unique blend of OpenTravel XML specific features:
- Imports both the OpenTravel XSD and associated documentation
- Provides searchable OpenTravel documentation
- Supports “drag and drop” Codelists
- Has transaction templates for all 240+ OpenTravel messages
- Enables OpenTravel-compliant Model extensions
- Supports multiple OpenTravel model releases, model upgrades and different model interpretations
The eiConsole for Open Travel allows implementers of the travel XML standard to choose from a pre-developed library of interface templates. These templates provide schemas (XSDs) and example OpenTravel XML messages for every defined request and response type. Whether you are seeking to develop a web service interface to a hotel booking engine (e.g., Priceline’s booking.com) or to implement the HTNG specifications within a hotel chain, the eiConsole enables a faster, better and more cost effective implementation than those produced by hand coding or horizontal vendor products alone.
The eiConsole for Open Travel is the developer’s compliment to the eiPlatform runtime. Learn about the CORE FEATURES of the eiConsole.
The eiPlatform – the Integration Engine Powerhouse
PilotFish’s eiPlatform is a complete Java framework with a central XML hub architecture. Processors and adapters allow you to connect all the different hospitality and travel systems, internal or external, so they no longer need to communicate separately. By implementing a many-to-one and one-to-many (common model integration) method of managing interfaces you can dramatically lower the total number of interfaces required between your internal and external business applications.
