PTV xServer 2.0 Preview is online!

Postby IsH-PTVAG » Mon Feb 22, 2016 5:15 pm

Dear customer, dear partner, dear colleague,

we want to offer you the chance to test our all-new PTV xServer 2.0 Preview.
It is a glimpse on the new generation of our PTV xServer and you have the advantage to test the look and feel of our constantly growing PTV xServer 2.0.
We designed a completely new framework which bundles all servers modules. The new API design is easier to understand and application programmers will profit from improved flexibility and consistency across all server modules. The API is still growing and your feedback is highly appreciated.

What do we offer in this preview?
You can reach the online service via the following url: https://xserver2-europe-test.cloud.ptvgroup.com/
Currently only the modules xRoute and xMap are accessible. The API only presents implemented features which are already usable. The service is based on the TomTom World City Map 2015 T.

Please note that there is no Service Level Agreement, but the server is monitored.
You are free to use the server for test purposes. You must not use the server as a productive system.

How to get access and further information?
You need an active PTV xServer internet account for authentication.
Just register via the “Test for free!” button on our PTV xServer Developer Zone and sing up for a test account. If you have any active PTV xServer internet account this will work as well.

The server will be updated on regular basis. You can find update information on our forum.
After registration you will be added to the hidden group „xServer2.0 Preview Tester“ and can
enter the hidden forum section PTV xServer 2.0 Preview.

How to give feedback?
We hope you test the server thoroughly and give us feedback regarding the framework and API design. You can give us feedback through our xServer support team or forum! Dear PTV colleagues please use our internal Genesis ticket system or the xServer support mail address for your feedback.

With kind Regards,

Isabel Honikel

Hi!
We are developing a custom user control in Windows Forms and we are trying server xstwo-test as a pure tile image server. It works really great!

We'd like to know if PTV xServer Internet is going to offer this image tile server for production environment soon, and more important, if this service will be available in long term.

Keep doing so nice.

Yours sincerely,

Hi Antonio,

we are happy that you like our preview.
At the moment we work hard on our new features to get them ready until the end of this year. So the tile api would be available on PTV xServer internet by beginning of 2017.
We than will support this new api in long term, so don´t worry about the future.

Best regards,
Isabel Honikel

Hello,

is there an update regarding the new features and benefits for using xServer v2.0 over the "old" xServer v1.22? A matrix-comparison (or something similiar) would really help.

Thank you very much in advance!

Hello Peter,

I forwarded your request to Product Management, DEV and Solution Director and asked them for a proper response.

Maybe some comments on a personal base:
  • xServer 1 and xServer 2 do not exclude each other: our focus on xServer 2 is to implement NEW features over there.
  • Customers can merge both worlds if necessary. xServer2 is therefore more an additional tool in the toolbox than an alternative you have to choose.
  • xMap / Mapping in xServer2 is quite well: the integration into standard mapping frameworks such as Leaflet or OpenLayers seems to work quite well (check e.g. the SAP forum)
  • xTour 2 / TourPlanning: the data modell behind xTour2 is based on new approaches that enable us to satisfy uncovered usecases in the future (not all dimensions are already implemented)
  • xLocate 2: the single field search works quite well but requires a large set of additional data (25GB for EU). As xLocate 2 doesn't provide reverse geocoding or multifield search you might have to have a look at xLocate1 and xLocate2 at the same time.
