The SCEX family of products features loan calculation and compliance software for the end user, as well embedded solutions for partners to use in their own end user applications.

SCEX Loan Server for Linux

Submitted 2010-10-13 13:49:00 -0700

The SCEX is loan calculation software that can be embedded within your own application, supporting consumer, commercial, and mortgage loan calculations. The SCEX Loan Server goes one step beyond the SCEX, turning the SCEX into a multi-platform calculation engine, allowing applications hosted on platforms without the SCEX to harness the power of the SCEX. Some of our customers like to think of it as a loan calculation server. The SCEX Loan Server provides a TCP/IP communication wrapper around the SCEX. So long as the platform on which your application resides can communicate via TCP/IP, you can use the Sherman Calculation Engine in your product.

As of the October, 2010 release, Sherman and Associates is pleased to announce that the SCEX Loan Server is now available for the 32-bit and 64-bit Linux platforms. The server is implemented as a preforked, multi-process model that can take advantage of systems with multiple CPUs or cores, which are frequently encountered within today’s servers. As an added bonus, the SCEX Loan Server is written in Python, so your developers can extend or modify the application as you see fit.

If you are interested in the SCEX Loan Server Service, the SCEX for 32-bit and 64-bit platforms, or have any other questions, please feel free to contact us for further information.
