Projects / Linux-Kontor


Linux-Kontor is a project for the development of a free business management software suite. Core components of this suite are the commodities, bookkeeping, accountancy, and inventory management modules. Platform-independence, Internet capabilities, and scalability are the three main design requirements. The developers have decided to use Java and a three-tier client-server architecture. The data is stored in an SQL database.
