Application Architect


Oct 2012Mar 2013

As a Quartz architect, that provides technical support and guidelines to the Global Risk Developers, I assist in determining if the Quartz environment can be utilized to develop new applications or convert legacy application to Quartz. This includes researching and creating POC that can be delivered to the developer and then converted to a concrete application. Quartz is an all in compassing technology environment that is written in Python utilizing custom built components (IDE, Job Scheduler, proprietary database and GUI components). Quartz provides developers the use of a global library of components that can be used in developing composite applications.

Solution Architect/Developer


Jul 2010Aug 2012

The current project that I am working on requires hands on reverse engineering the company's sales order distribution sites written in PHP with MYSQL and Oracle into a SOA framework using Java and Oracle SOA products. During the code analysis of the PHP code requirements are documented, test cases are developed and core business process are defined that can be converted to Java and wrapped as Web Services. The Service's will be accessed through proxy services on an OSB/ Composite Integration platform. Consumer requests are transformed to an OAGIS Sales Order Canonical data model. Core business service will be exposed to internal and external consumers through an OSB platform to provide security and reliability. Event Messaging design pattern is used to allow consuming systems to be able to pull certain messages that they need to process and provide reliable messaging. Coherence cache is used to provide faster access to data lookups for the services this will cut down having to access the database when requesting common data as well as provide data in the event the data tier is offline.
