apollon's Online Media Net PIM system is linked to the e-commerce system by a message queue. Changes to the product data from the PIM and merchandise management system are transferred as XML data to several queues, which the e-commerce system processes asynchronously. This system was specifically optimised to cope with a high throughput, due to the company's extensive product range and the many e-commerce-related changes in the master data.
The messages of the PIM in the e-commerce system were processed in a test-driven approach. The required test data and test cases were defined in advance for each case. In the event of changes or additions, the entire functionality of the link can be tested, and adaptations in logic or fields are also first created as a test and then implemented.
