Controls for the SPS experimental areas (CESAR)

CESAR wiki (CERN only)

What is CESAR?

CESAR is a client-server control system for the beamlines of the SPS experimental areas, used by an overall community of over 1000 experimental physicists. Apart from controlling 30 different types of hardware, CESAR is capable of reliably managing beamline settings.


How is CESAR made?

Technically, CESAR is a three-tier application with many GUIs, a J2EE server and Front-end computers. CESAR is Spring-based and uses Hibernate for the DB access. The communication between servers and clients is implemented using Java RMI and JMS.
