Oklahoma DPS Adds New DMV Web Service

the Oklahoma State Capitol building

CPI OpenFox implemented a new web services interface to process driver-related transactions to a new DMV service for the Oklahoma Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (OLETS). The new web services interface will replace the current TN3270 mainframe interface at the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety.

The primary objective of this project was to replace the legacy text interface between the existing Mainframe and the OpenFox® Message Switch with a Web Service interface that exchanges Nlets National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) standardized XML. This project involved creating a new web services interface, file route, station class, and associated stations as well as core messaging system changes to process driver-related transactions with a new data server. The scope of this project only includes driver-related transactions. CPI provided and configured the following OpenFox components:

  • A new Representational State Transfer (RESTful) synchronous web service client interface to communicate with the DMV web service
  • A new file route associated with a new DMV station
  • Presentation stylesheets as provided by Nlets for in-state responses
  • Presentation stylesheet for Customer-specific Driver Query responses
  • Code changes to the OpenFox Message Switch to support the new headers, trailers, and message formats
  • Message Switch Key Configurations
