Technical Requirements

Web application and server, database server, and user workstation requirements.


Lawtrac is a Web-based application. This application was developed using ColdFusion, an intuitive tag-based scripting language. It does not require the installation of any additional files on the local workstation. The back-end, ColdFusion software, along with the database and application files, must be installed on a server. ColdFusion is the Web server software that interprets and translates the Lawtrac application files. 

If customers opt for Mitratech to host their company's database (Managed Service Provider-MSP), the Lawtrac Support department handles and maintains the application setup. However, customers hosting their company's application (Intranet) must ensure that additional components are acquired (i.e., ColdFusion, SQL Server, etc.) and that adequate hardware is available for each component outlined. In addition, in-house database and Web administrators are required to perform installations and maintain the database and Web servers.

Notes for on-premise clients: Lawtrac requires DNS Setup as well as an SSL Certificate prior to implementation. Lawtrac only works on SSL (https://) and requires that these steps are already completed to function.
