Multi-Application Software Connector for CCN Network

NEED TO CONNECT EU APPLICATIONS TO THE CCN NETWORK?

FACING THE COMPLEXITY OF MAINTAINING MULTIPLE CSI STACKS?

THEN lxr.CCN IS WHAT YOU NEED.

lxr.CCN is a performing software connector to be used as a reliable “bridge” solution for EU Customs & Taxation applications that needs to connect the trans-European CCN Network. lxr.CCN offers to those applications a standard and loosely-coupled Web Service interface that hides the proprietary CSI interface to developers (no knowledge of CSI required anymore!). lxr.CCN also provides enhanced administration facilities that transform complex configuration tasks into a piece of cake.

lxr.CCN is “multi-application”, i.e. it can be shared by multiple national Customs/Excise applications (e.g. NCTS, VAT refund, MOSS, EMCS, SEED, ECS, ICS, etc.) connecting the CCN network. Both CCN/CSI and CCN Intranet channels are supported.

What value does lxr.CCN bring to you?

accessibility

Your developers do not need to know about CSI programming anymore. They can apply standard practices.

lxr.CCN removes the contraints put on the National Administrations and their IT suppliers to provide personnel having the knowledge of CSI programming when it comes to evolve an existing EU application or implement a new one. This means that National Administrations gain in staffing flexibility while reducing training costs.

You strongly reduce the maintenance costs due to your EU applications sharing the same connector.

lxr.CCN allows National Administrations to harmonise and rationalise the way EU applications connect the CCN Network. They do not need anymore to maintain a large variety of – sometimes outdated – stacks often involving a different technology from one application to another as lxr.CCN offer a standard Web service interface to EU applications and totally hides the complexity of CSI-based connectivity. This means strong reduction of maintenance costs and higher scalability.

You facilitate the transition towards CCN2

lxr.CCN is meant to play the role of EU applications dispatcher between the current CCN Network and the forthcoming CCN2 (to be seen as a major upgrade of the current CCN Network proposing new services on top of existing CSI-based services which will be kept). This means that lxr.CCN offers a straightforward way to National Administrations to execute the gradual transition of current EU applications (NCTS, VIES, EMCS, etc.) to the CCN2 Network, should such transition be decided by DG TAXUD and National Administrations.

Update on lxr.CCN.HTTP and CCN Gateways 8.0

commentNo Comments
To all lxr.CCN users: it has come to our attention that the latest version (8.0) of the CCN software (running on the CCN Gateways) has an adverse impact on the lxr.CCN connector functioning. The problem is that CCN 8.0 involves an Apache upgrade to version 2, which has the effect that lxr.CCN.HTTP is not able…

lxr.CCN : a solution to smoothly migrate JCSI applications

commentNo Comments
As announced by the DG TAXUD, the JCSI stack will be decommissioned soon (the current deadline is set 31-Mar-2021). This means that National Administrations running EU applications still using the JCSI stack will be required to migrate each of them to the (new) NJCSI stack, which can reveal a complex and costly activity. This migration…
