Weave is a business integration framework for rapidly combining disparate information systems in an easy to use environment. It is based on Open Systems technology and is independent from vendor-specific technology and proprietary Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).
Weave is built using the Java platform so it can be installed on a variety of hardware and operating systems such as Windows, Linux and Unix.
Weave contains three Engines that allow rapid integration of disparate data.
The system's sophisticated reporting capabilities allow reports with data from multiple sources such as databases and web services. The reports may contain lists, charts, tables, crosstabs, maps and more. Compound reports such as multiple reports consolidated into a single document are also supported.
Reports can present data sorted, summarised, filtered and grouped to fit the user's needs.
There is no limit on the number of clients that a site can create. Each configured client has its own URL and login credentials (if required) so as to control access to Reports, Data, Mapping and Spatial Engines. For example, a simple mapping application could be hosted via anonymous access, and a protected site which is only accessible via a login, can be enabled for more sensitive data using the same Weave instance. The same instance of Weave will also handle multiple internal clients with each referencing different Mapping Engines and containing only data intended to be seen by internal staff.
Weave Application Integration Modules
With the use of WeaveLink, a technology developed by Cohga, a Weave browser can be controlled from a Windows application and vice-versa.
WeaveLink underpins several extension modules of the Weave family of products called Application Integration Modules (AIM). These modules allow the Weave browser to invoke a third party application with parameters (usually the selected entities) and also allow the third party desktop application to start or invoke a Weave browser with a set of entities as the current selection.
Application Integration modules enable functions according to the capabilities of the third party application's API.
Proclaim Application Integration Module
The Weave/ProClaim integration module provides a two way link between Weave and the Property & Rating product from Technology 1 (formerly known as ProClaim). The module enables ProClaim to call on the Weave interface to display information and conversely, Weave can call on ProClaim to display information.
Pathway Application Integration Module
The Weave/Pathway integration module provides a two way link between Weave and Pathway, the product for local government administration produced by Infor. Pathway can call on Weave to display information and Weave can call on Pathway to display information.
Confirm Application Integration Module
The current Weave/Confirm integration module supports a two way link between Weave and Confirm, the asset management system from Pitney Bowes. With this module, Confirm can send the current set of assets to the Weave browser for display (and for the reselection of assets based on other criteria) and Weave can send the current set of assets for display in Confirm. In addition Weave can have them saved as a named selection in Confirm or have Confirm display its asset selection screen.
AssetMaster Application Integration Module
The current Weave/AssetMaster integration module supports a two way link between Weave and AssetMaster, the asset management system from InfoMaster. AssetMaster can send the current set of assets to Weave for display and Weave can send the current set of assets for display in AssetMaster. Currently Internet Explorer is the only browser supported for this type of integration.
The link supports the following functions:
Weave to AssetMaster:
- Locate Asset
- Locate Catalogue
- Link to Asset/Catalogue
- Create Work Order
- Add to Work Order
- Locate Work Order
- Return to AssetMaster
AssetMaster to Weave:
- Show Weave
- View Selected Assets in Weave
Authority Application Integration Module
The current Weave/Authority integration module supports a two way link between Weave and Authority, the local government administration product suite from Civica. That is Authority can send the current set of assets to Weave for display and Weave can send the current set of assets for display in Authority.
The link supports the following functions:
Weave to Authority:
- Display Properties in Authority
- Neighbourhood notifications (mail merge)
- Bulk Property Correspondence (mail merge)
- Property Bulk Update
Authority to Weave:
- Display Properties in Weave

Weave Data Edit Extension
The Weave data editing extension enables end users to add, edit and delete records (entities) in their corporate spatial system, including snapping to existing features.
This capability is ideal for staff in the field, where a browser-based interface with focused functionality can increase productivity while saving the costs of a fully-fledged spatial application.
