We market our products globally but principally to high profile clinical institutions in the USA and Europe.

Software team

The core of the Deontics technology consists of a homegrown workflow and inference engine, called the Deon engine. The Deon engine is an implementation of the PROforma language (*) a published open standard. The current version is implemented in pure Java and it is supported by a framework of desktop and web applications.

Our web based applications and web based services are Java based, tested on Tomcat and are using struts for MVC framework, though we are in the process of moving to Spring MVC. Our preferred web service implementation is REST, but we occasionally need to talk to SOAP or entirely custom services.The engine and services are supported by an authoring application written for the NetBeans platform and there is a homegrown plugins framework written in core Java.

Our web user interface is split, with legacy components implemented using JSP and JSTL with newer versions using javascript, AJAX and RESTful services.
