About CampusnetIT | EN

CampusNet is a web platform designed to provide web services supporting the operations of the SCVSA department at the University of Parma. The platform has been developed over the years since 2001, initially to manage the web site of University degrees and now for managing web services within a University department. CampusNet consists of thirty relational databases managed by the WODA (Web Oriented DAtabase) framework through definition files written in Perl. The connection between CampusNet and the Apache web server is made through the CGI (Common Gateway Interface).

The software has a modular structure that allows for easy development of new services. The authentication system is federated based on Shibboleth, in addition to having an internal user table for the registration of non-federated users.
