Backbase builds its product as a suite of microservices. Services are based on the Spring Framework (Boot, Core, Web, Data). Services stores data in RDBMSes. Backbase supports MySQL, Oracle, and MsSQL for on-premise installations and MySQL for SAAS solutions. Hibernate is the default JPA provider. Backbase uses Java 11 and will migrate to Java 17 by the end of 2021. The build tool of choice is Maven. REST interfaces for service-to-service and client systems communication are specified using OpenAPI.
