About the product architecture

Source code architecturePolar Help Desk design is based on a 3-layer architecture. The three layers that Help Desk consists of are the following:

  1. Presentation Layer
  2. Business Layer
  3. Data Layer

Presentation Layer

Presentation Layer is the top layer that takes care of presenting Business Data to users and offering a way to manipulate this data, to perform Business Processes. This is the only layer that contains information about the specific technology used to create the user interface (for example, web controls that can be rendered to standard HTML, or standard Windows controls that result in a desktop application).

Business Layer

Business Layer is the middle layer. This is where Business Processes, Business Rules and Business Logic are implemented and where all Business Data is defined. Functionality of this layer is mainly used from the Presentation Layer.

Data Layer

Data Layer is the bottom layer. Its purpose is to manage the data storage and provide the upper layers with the ability to store and retrieve data. Functionality of Data Layer is mainly used from the Business Layer.

Polar Help Desk is a Microsoft .NET 1.1 based product written in C#. Minimum requirements are Windows 2000 with IIS 5 and Microsoft SQL 2000 or MSDE.
