1CRWorld 4 has been built on Java enterprise technologies. The client connects to a Google Web Toolkit (GWT) front end application or through one of the interfaces (see below). The application server is protected by a solid security layer and uses the Spring Framework. The services on the application server uses JPA (aided by Querydsl) to communicate with a PostGres Database server. All transactions are stored as double entry bookings in the accounting system. 1CRWorld can run as stand alone system independently from other currency systems. There is an option to store files (e.g. documents, pictures, other file uploads) in a external file system (not in the 1CRWorld database). Amazon S3 storage service is also supported.

Hosting requirements

1CRWorld can run on a web container such as Apache Tomcat and Jetty, or application servers such as Glassfish, JBoss, IBM Websphere and Oracle Weblogic. The database for 1CRWorld is the Open Source database PostgreSQL. 1CRWorld is also available as a Docker image at the public Docker repository.

The minimal memory space requirements to run a single 1CRWorld instance is 500 Mb.

Interoperability (interfaces)

For communication with third party software products the entire internal services layer can be accessed through a web service API (Application Programming Interface). This will make all 1CRWorld features available to third parties.

Native Java clients can connect directly via Java remoting over HTTP(S). Clients in other languages can use an API with JSON messages over HTTP(S). 1CRWorld has a RESTful web services interface that implements the OpenAPI specification. There is also a PHP client library available which mirrors the services API. In case third party software requires specific interface services other than the available 1CRWorld API formats, a 'custom web service' can be created to provide those methods.



Since the beginning the 1CRWorld development team followed the security guidelines defined by the ISO 27002 and EBA (European Banking Authority) standards. The code is constantly tested by an advanced set of automated security tests. Permissions and roles are checked on every request at the internal services level.

The following security areas / points have been addressed:

Confidentiality, integrity, authenticity are guaranteed by security checks in combination with http secure (https)

Resistance to attacks as XSS, CSRF, SQL injections

All passwords hashed with ‘salted’ SHA2

All identifiers are ciphered when sending to client (browser)

Use of cookies limited to user session

Security alerts for administrators

Verbose logging including operation data, users, timestamp

IP whitelist

URL restriction per group

Scalability & availability

The 1CRWorld application supports full clustering (application web container).

The database has been optimised to support database clustering and synchronous replication.
