The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Council has mandated all companies handling credit card information start using the latest Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 protocol. As the result PayPal requires all merchants accepting payments via PayPal to ensure their systems’ ability to support that protocol by June 17th, 2016.
Unfortunately, TLS 1.2 support is only available by default under Java 8 (JDK 1.8), which creates a problem for many ATG/Oracle Commerce websites running on Java 6 and 7. Spark::red has updated its ATG PayPal Integration Modules to meet this new requirement and help Oracle Commerce customers bring their systems up-to-date with minimum financial and time investment. The new version of the modules provides full TLS 1.2 support to the PayPal connection, regardless of the Java version running the ATG/Oracle Commerce platform. Moreover, it provides the PayPal-recommended client certificate authentication mechanism, instead of the less secure Signature API authentication.
These new modules also provide Reference Transaction support, as well as the normal Checkout, and Express Checkout flows. Future versions of the module will add new features and will be drop-in upgrades, making maintenance costs much lower than building your own integration.
The updated Spark::red ATG PayPal Integration Modules are available for ATG/Oracle Commerce 10.x. and 11.x.
The only PayPal certified integration for Oracle Commerce, the module has already helped many Oracle Commerce customers save tens of thousands dollars and days associated with the PayPal integration projects. Visit ATG PayPal Integration Module GitHub page to download the modules.
