Develop independent React modules and divide the migration into stages using the same modular architecture of the platform. Migrate and publish the solution without disrupting the service using modules. Have the newly updated platform up and functioning before the expiration date of the Flash technology.
Our client requested from us a seamless migration to:
- Maintain the operability, quality of services, and prestige for the 45 companies that were using the system at the time.
- Improve and upgrade the current features of the software.
- Allow the platform to scale and support upcoming features and more clients without decreasing its performance.
- Ensure its continuous optimization, support, and maintenance to offer uninterrupted service in real-time at a large scale.
To guarantee the stability and integrity of the application during the migration, we agreed to carry out an incremental, iterative process in which modules were migrated and put into production after going through an arduous quality process.
We decided to use React for the frontend since its component-based library lets you build high-quality user interfaces. At first, the platform was segmented into modules, so we developed independent React modules and divided the migration into stages using the same modular architecture.
We developed the modules using an iFrame-like approach, where each new React module was embedded in the Flash module and then migrated. This allowed us to send the platform to production by areas without affecting the services or shooting down the platform. Ultimately, the system migrated to React and always remained operational.
