Finally, we provide several insights into managing operations and securing the hybris Platform. Later we will dive into individual topics, but before we do this we would like you to understand the lean and lightweight approach we have taken for the design of the hybris Commerce Suite. You will find out that our architecture is based heavily on Spring1, an open source framework primarily known for its de- pendency injection DI and aspect-oriented programming AOP features.
The hybris extension concept is based on this Spring foundation and allows the hybris Platform to be highly extensible and flexible as you will see. Architecture Overview The execution environment for the hybris Platform is a Java form of Spring beans to the global application context or may EE Servlet Container, for example Tomcat2 or VMware vFa- also choose to overwrite existing functionality.
Extensions are bric tcServer3, which is also based on Tomcat but provides either provided by hybris as part of the purchase of a module commercial support. The platform and all extensions to it are or written by yourself, in which case we call this extension a running within the Spring environment, which allows easy wi- custom extension. An extension may simply provide additio- ring and configuration of each component. It provides generic nal business logic without exposing a visible UI or it may also logic such as security, caching, clustering and persistence.
A natural framework choice to realize this web application in our Spring environment is to use the Spring 2. Service-oriented web applications typically implement web service endpoints.

Presentation-oriented web applications are geared towards web browsers and will typically generate dyna- mic HTML markup. If you choose to offer a web-based store, hybris is completely open to whatever frontend technology you prefer. You may choose any Java-based web application you will either adapt one of our templates see for example framework which will allow you to directly interface with the the Accelerator template or create this web application from business logic APIs so-called hybris ServiceLayer API , or you scratch.

The hybris others or any other non-Java technology like a Rails-based Administration Console, an extension used to administrate the front end that communicates with hybris via web services can hybris Platform, is a good example of a presentation-oriented be used.
This API in that the mapping between business objects and database consists of a set of services, managed by the Spring environ- tables is taken care of behind the scenes with an ORM Object- ment and includes all business logic that the hybris Platform Relational-Mapping framework. However it is more flexible and extensions offer. The hybris Platform and each extension as it seamlessly and immediately supports all new custom may add services to the ServiceLayer, in which case all other business models that are created by our partners.
Each layer can be tested in isolation, which significantly reduces the time and Another key feature of any extension is the ability to add or setup cost for the tests. The hybris data model is defined in XML and can easily be adjusted If an extension also contains a web front end, the web front to your specific needs. Using this Model Driven Architecture end will have its own private Spring application context. This MDA approach, our customers have full flexibility in desig- allows you to separate the specific concerns of the web appli- ning their data model and do not have the need to wrap me- cation from the rest of the business logic that your extension aningful properties of a business object in general-purpose provides.

Later, in production, While we encourage our partners to use annotation-based Spring the same code that runs on developer machines will also run configuration, the hybris Platform itself uses XML-based Spring on the server machines, but in this case of course with a DBMS configuration.
This provides benefits for partners as the configu- solution like Oracle RAC8. A typical startup of the preconfigured ration required is more centrally located and can be identified and hybris Tomcat server takes less than 30 seconds.

Our platform and all extensions are configured via text-based Many of the frameworks, libraries and standards that we use properties files one main properties file for the platform and can be seen in Figure 8.
Figure 8: Frameworks, libraries and standards used in the hybris Commerce Suite. The business model for example is very flexible and Layer can be tailored to your exact needs using an MDA approach. Each service that is exposed in the hybris ServiceLayer can be customized As hybris uses the Spring Application Framework, it is very easy or even completely replaced.
Our partners use the same extension to add or replace existing services in the ServiceLayer. By repla- concept that we use internally to extend our platform to build the cing default services, you are free to use any specific implemen- omni-channel solution for their customers.

Of course hybris is also strong in internationalization. The default business model supports multiple languages, currencies and sites.

The result is a business To create new extensions, hybris includes a command-line tool model that exactly fits your needs and does not require you to wrap called extgen. It can be used to create completely empty exten- any relevant data in meaningless container structures.
According to sions or to create template extensions that already offer certain the defined business model, the hybris platform will automatically functionality. It shows the next section for more details the XML-based format in which business objects are defined. To achieve this, the extension is simply added to localextensions. Figure 9 shows an example localextensions. It is a ready-to-use framework built on top of the hybris Platform and it includes numerous extensions from the hybris Commerce Suite.
It can easily be used by our partners using the extgen com- mandline tool. The hybris Commerce Accelerator applications are a best-practice reference implementations and allow our partners to reduce the implementation time to 3—4 months for a typical client project.
It provides a dience and language. The hybris Commerce Suite provides po- coarse-grained interface which is ideal for creating custom web werful support for such cases by allowing customers to specify services on top, e. The inheritance rules from a parent to child various Spring-related and custom events.
As each extension be- catalog are specified in hybris synchronization rules, which can comes part of a global application context, an extension can easily also be used for synchronizing staged catalogs with their online listen to all these events or publish its own, custom events.
