Developer Network leverages One Network’s industry leading Software Development Toolkit (“SDK”) and consists of the Community Master Data Network and a horizontal service network. Developer Network utilizes standard languages and tools including Java, HTML, CSS, Oracle, ext-js, SQL and Eclipse with one-click deployment to run in the cloud. Full support for easy maintenance of applications including managing the full-lifecycle of the applications is also included.
One Network development services are also available for Developer Network. The extensive service offering includes the development, running and maintenance of Developer Network customer apps. For customers seeking collaboration, joint development programs are also offered.
