e-Self Service Application Framework (eSSAF) a plug-in based
development toolkit for creating applications running on self
servicing machine such as ATM. It was developed by IBM Singapore
and in ASEAN 20 banks more than 3000 ATMs are running eSSAF.
This product has been evolving for 10 years. In the trend of
cross-platform and Java, they are trying to design and creating a
new generation of eSSAF running on Java. The Java based
rich-client platform Eclipse has chosen to be the platform of eSSAF
because it’s plug-in based nature and extensibility is a perfect match
with eSSAF architecture. In the design phase of the new eSSAF, the
current architecture will be refined and some more functions such
as live update will be added in.
