Technological foundation

The inner value.

More of everything: Speed, stability, security.

Numerous under the hood optimizations make mQuest® faster, more stable and more secure than ever. Starting with the modernization of the security architecture and guidelines, over system architecture optimization for better performance and scalability, to the optimized integration potential for upgraded mQuest® APIs.

One more thing …

Oracle Java is no more. Long live OpenJDK!

To deliver the best possible user experience for our clients, we build our enterprise applications on Java as a robust platform since the beginning. After a corporate acquisition Oracle changed the licensing terms and the support structure for thier Java runtime environments on short notice.

To prevent additional cost for our clients the QuestEditor will be changed in this release from Oracle Java SE Runtime to the new OpenJDK. By this change the known performance and high security standards of mQuest® will be not affected whatsoever.

For this reason, starting with the 05th of December 2018, we kindly ask you to adopt to mQuest® 18a soon and to please download and install also the new QuestEditor incl. OpenJDK as a package from our download area. The webstart version will stop working after this date.
