Case Study

Ange Bleu

The European Commission’s Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development (DG AGRI) makes consolidated versions of legislative documents available to lawyers and other clients. Moreover, at regular intervals they create overviews of the entirety of legislation currently in force.

Workflows with legislative texts – made easier

Although the resulting consolidated documents are not legally binding, they facilitate legislation-related activity by highlighting all textual modifications in the documents and supplementing them with information stored in a database. In all, over 2,000 legislative acts with a total of 10,000 document versions have been managed by the system since it was created.


A department of the European Commission (Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development, DG Agri) was looking for a partner to optimize software they had developed for consolidating and managing legislative documents that affect the agriculture sector of the European Union.


The basic system consisted of an MS Word app for editing the documents, and a series of smaller MS Access applications that were being used as an input mask for an Oracle database.

The goal of the first project phase involving DIaLOGIKa was to port the MS Word application from VBA to VB.NET, along with a thorough reworking of the program code. This entailed performing a deep analysis of the MS Access apps, and, by creating various specification documents, laying the foundation for porting this application to Java. The actual porting of the MS Access applications was performed by the customer themselves.

In follow-up projects, the MS Word application Ange Bleu was extended with a number of new functionalities to make meta-knowledge stored in the databases available to the users and to automate some recurring workflows. Further, DIaLOGIKa took over maintenance and further development of the Java-based web/backend applications, and developed another new Java/web application for managing supplemental documents, integrating it into the Ange Bleu system.


Over the years the system has been further developed and as needed, adapted to changing MS Word versions. The existing MS Access applications have been newly implemented with more recent Java technologies and fitted into the web/backend infrastructure of the DG AGRI.
