Collection of web tools for ATLAS Tile Calorimeter data quality tasks
The ATLAS Tile Calorimeter (TileCal), as a substantial part of the hadronic calorimeter system of the ATLAS detector, records energy deposits and jointly with other calorimeters reconstructs hadrons, jets, tau-particles and missing transverse energy. It also assists in muon identification. The TileCal is constructed out of alternating steel absorber layers and active scintillating tiles and covers region |η| < 1.7. Its operation is closely monitored by several systems, which were independently developed to meet distinct collaboration requirements. Any problem or indication of a problem is reported and immediately investigated, which resulted in data quality (DQ) efficiency close to 100% in the last several years. Although the TileCal tools are maintained and still being developed, the underlying technologies on which they were developed, especially web related tools, are becoming gradually outdated.
The goal of the Tile-in-One (TiO) web platform is to integrate all the different TileCal DQ tools, independently developed over long period of time by different groups and individuals into one cohesive system without any non-necessary overlap in functionality. It is implemented as a collection of relatively small independent web applications designed for one specific task accessed through the main TiO server, which handles the authentication. Every application is isolated in its own virtual machine and is called plugin. Currently, the platform operates with several plugins in various stages of development and focuses not only on reimplementation of the old tools but also on creation of new ones. The implementation details of the Tile-in-One web platform, as well as a selection of plugins will be presented.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
