HEXAA Components

Main components of HEXAA

  • HEXAA-backend is a php+sql+smyfony based application that provides a REST API.
  • HEXAA-ui is php+symfony application that uses HEXAA-backend and provides a user interface.
  • HEXAA AA module is a simplesamlphp module enables the SAML AA access of HEXAA data.

It is possible, but uncommon to use HEXAA-backend in itself, without a GUI. Also, it is possible to not integrate HEXAA with simplesamlphp. In this case the data is still accessible on the API but not in SAML AA.
