The DMA Onboarder consists of two principal layers:

  • User Interface Layer
  • Server Layer
DMA Onboarder architecture

The User Interface Layer is a JavaScript single page application built using ReactJS which uses ReduxJS for state management. The application makes use of a layered structure to separate logic and presentation components. It is primarily responsible for tracking application state, dynamic field injection, and sending instructions to the Server Layer.

The Server Layer is a simple, custom Web API built using ASP.NET Core to process instructions from the User Interface Layer. The system separated into multiple single responsibility modules for easy readability, reusability, and reliability. It is primarily responsible for PDF generation, file archiving, and email notifications.
