A mediation solution is a set of distributed mediation components running under the control of the ScalAgent middleware. Mediation components as well as middleware components are located on logical mediation servers. The set of tools that enable the construction, deployment and operational management of the complete mediation solution are made available in the ScalAgent Software Development Kit (SDK).
Mediation servers are in charge of hosting and operating mediation components. They are powered by the Scalagent middleware technology. Servers can operate on any Java enabled hardware and operating system. Depending on the type of hardware, a complete Mediation Server, a lightweight Mediation eServer, or even a JORAM limited middleware can be operated.
The deployment topology of Mediation Servers is completely flexible, according to the enterprise hardware infrastructure and network connections. Mediation Server configurations can vary from one Mediation Server to thousands, while Mediation eServer figures are limited just by the imagination and hardware capacities. From one configuration to another, ScalAgent Mediation Suite will assist you in evolving your system at the lowest possible cost.
The Mediation SDK is the set of Java-based tools for the development and administration of mediation solutions. The tools operate on the mediation components and use the services of the ScalAgent middleware.
The tools are operated by both by the application designer and the application administrator.
