United Soft, Inc.
October 2001 to Feb 2002

Project Lead
Project: Distributed Document Repository

The Distributed Document Repository is being developed using the latest Microsoft DOTNET .Net technologies. Most companies with many locations/departments do not have a central place where an employee can go to search for training guides, manuals, standard operating procedures etc.

With this system, each department/location of a company is responsible for maintaining its own set of documents Word documents, pdf files, html pages etc. The documents are uploaded to the web-server within that department. These documents are then indexed using Microsoft Index Server.

An employee always logs on to one Central Web Server. When an employee does a document search, the Central Web Server queries Web Services running on the web-servers at different departments/locations using SOAP and returns a list of documents that match the users requirements. The collective knowledge of the company thus becomes available at one central place. A new or updated document is available company-wide as soon as it is published.

A Design and implement of several eCommerce sites to enable users to search through company s inventory by different categories i.e.: Category, Subcategory, Item number, keyword, . , add the item to shopping cart and, finally, check out using Cybercash technology. Mat2000 was slightly different from eMax USA, because it provides users with pricing list in accordance with what percentage of discount was set up by Administration of the site for that particular client. Users were allowed to customize their purchasing personal computers as well. Other sites were using search engines, databases and Cybercash checkout system, as well.

  • Administrator side that focuses on management of administrative tasks, such as pricing and/or discounts where applicable , upload images of items where applicable , orders status, etc.
  • Consumer side allows new users to begin with creation of a portfolio and set up a Username and Password by registering. Users, then, are lead to step through the process such as searching for products or use categories already provided for them, add or delete items to shopping card, and finally check out. When checking out, users are asked for their billing, shipping and payment method information. If credit card is being used, cybercash enables the site to process the credit card and complete the process by emailing invoices to the company and the user.

B-PLUS Application

The assessment I wrote for Richter in November 2000 was reviewed and a migration plan was approved to improve the architecture of the B-PLUS application. I was contracted to assist in this effort. The majority of my time on this project has been spent between development and production support. As part of the B-PLUS team I am assigned various production support issues that arise. Sometimes those issues are simple data changes, sometimes they are complicated bug fixes in the application code. The development time is spent adding new features to the application required by the business customer and cleaning up the existing code by separating logic into presentation and business tiers. A data tier was also proposed but has not been approved to date. The eventual goal being to have a thin client with the majority of the presentation logic and a server-based business tier. In July 2001, B-PLUS was one large client application.

The effort has been largely successful. New features have been added on time and on budget while significant improvements have been made to the structure and stability of the code base. The overall footprint has decreased despite additional features because of increased code reuse between areas of the application.

Technologies Used:

Visual Basic 6 Enterprise Edition, COM, DAO, ADO, IBM DB2 Universal Database


My responsibilities as architect and developer for Richter were as follows:

  • Maintain the DB2 ERD files using ERwin
  • Support the production version of B-PLUS
  • Design and development of new features of B-PLUS
  • Write functional and technical documentation for B-PLUS and participate in knowledge transfer to other developers
  • Participate in numerous design and project status meetings
  • Help create test data and test cases

ABC Clearance Web Site

The ABC Clearance web site was created to allow United Kingdom producers to clear business for ABC in the United States. After ruling out modifications to the B-PLUS client application, a web application was decided to be the best solution. Over a 12 week period, the site was created from scratch, including about 3 dozen ASP files and associated includes and 3 middle tier business objects. The ASP pages were written with Visual InterDev with integrated SourceSafe. The business objects were written with Visual Basic 6. The business objects returned data to the ASPs in a custom XML format. The MSXML component was used to create and parse these XML data streams. Photoshop 6 was used to create the images for the site.

As with other Richter web applications, the site is served on IIS 4 and goes through the Webthority proxy server which handles SSL and LDAP-based authentication. Traditionally, a significant amount of work has gone into working with the Webthority team to test the security of the site and to ensure maximum availability.

Technologies Used:

Active Server Pages (ASP), Visual Basic 6 Enterprise Edition, COM, HTML, ADO, MTS, IBM DB2 Universal Database, IIS 4, XML, Webthority, LDAP, JavaScript, VBScript, 128-bit SSL


My responsibilities as architect and developer on this project were as follows:

  • Design, construct, and test the Active Server Pages
  • Design, construct, and test the business objects
  • Write the SQL to get data into and out of the DB2 database
  • Participate in numerous design and project status meetings
  • Interview client for interface design requirements and general business process analysis
  • Work with security architects to ensure safe, secure availability of system

Word Sense Disambiguation

Word Sense Disambiguation is an ongoing project at St.John, in conjunction with the WordNet project at MIT, to identify the context of a given sentence based on the words in the sentence and their relationships to other words in the sentence. For example, when a human is given the sentence “He sat on the river bank and watched the boats go by,” the human knows that the person is not going to a bank to finance a boat. A computer might make that mistake because it is difficult to identify what context of bank is meant. My work on this project was to create a web-based front-end to the application which accepts a sentence and attempts to identify the context. The site consisted of only a single JSP and several classes.

Technologies Used:

Java Server Pages (JSP), Java, Tomcat / Jakarta, Windows 2000 Server, Borland JBuilder Enterprise Edition


My responsibilities as programmer were as follows:

  • Design, construct, and test the JSP web site
  • Design, construct, and test the Java classes
  • Help create test data and test cases

AI Search

This is an artificial intelligence project which uses various algorithms to optimize the contextual accuracy of Internet search results. Given a particular search criteria, the application then measures the relevance of all database documents, reporting the most relevant documents back as search results. The Java classes implement a number of mathematical measurement functions to determine relevance.

Technologies Used:

Java Server Pages (JSP), Servlets, Java, Microsoft Access, Tomcat / Jakarta, Allaire JRun, Windows 2000 Server, Borland JBuilder Enterprise Edition


My responsibilities as programmer were as follows:

  • Design, construct, and test the JSP web site
  • Design, construct, and test the Servlets and other Java classes
  • Help create test data and test cases
  • Set up the Java web servers Tomcat and JRun on university s Windows 2000 Servers

B-PLUS Document Generation Server

One of the most time-consuming tasks involved in using B-PLUS in the generation and printing of various forms and letters. Before this project it took between 40 seconds and 2 minutes to generate a given document in the field. The same document only took 10 seconds or so when generated local to the database. The overhead was due to the slow connections between field offices and the home office and the massive number of database queries required to generate a given document.

I proposed offloading the document generation task to a powerful server in the home office. A request would be initiated by B-PLUS in the field, the server would receive the request, generate the required document, and return a completion result. The documents were and continue to be stored on a file server at the home office so the document itself did not need to be sent back across the network.

The solution was implemented as a web service using SOAP and the accompanying components. The document request was sent via SOAP, collected by the SOAP Listener on the server, and then the documents were generated. A significant amount of componentization of the B-PLUS logic was required to make this work. The document generation logic was eventually hosted in MTS and was separated between several objects.

This was one of the bigger successes for B-PLUS as the average time for document generation went down to 3-4 seconds in the field. The generation time was better than expected due to the server actually generating the document much faster than in the field. The server was a dual processor, 1 GB machine where the average field machine was an older Pentium model with 32 MB RAM and most users having Lotus Notes loaded simultaneously, i.e. very slow machine.

Technologies Used:

SOAP 2.0, Visual Basic 6 Enterprise Edition, COM, DCOM, HTML, ADO, MTS, IBM DB2 Universal Database, IIS 4, XML


My responsibilities as architect and developer for Richter were as follows:

  • Separate out the document generation logic and create COM components for the server
  • Install SOAP on the server and plan the rollout of SOAP to all B-PLUS client machines in the field
  • Modify B-PLUS client application to interface with the server through SOAP
  • Created and executed load tests to ensure document server could handle many document requests simultaneously

The application was to be run on the agent s laptop using Personal Web Server. A local SQL Server database contained the customer and quote data and was replicated with the master SQL Server database in the office.

I was brought in to assist in meeting the proposed deadline and became responsible for the web application. The architect directed me to create an XML document definition to contain the variables captured in the customer coverage application interview. Each page would collect the data, insert it into the XML document, and pass the document to the next page to persist the data. All of this was done using ASP written in JScript and JScript classes.

Technologies Used:

Active Server Pages, JScript, HTML, Visual InterDev 6, IIS 4, XML, MSXML


My responsibilities as developer for AON were as follows:

  • Create the Active Server Pages
  • Create the DTD to capture all customer application information
  • Create the JScript classes to persist the XML document
  • Participate in numerous design and project status meetings

JPI Legal Bill Review System

Richter receives over $200 million in legal bills from over 700 law firms which it does business with. Ideally, each legal bill is audited for compliance with the services agreement between Richter and the law firm. The average legal bill is generally 10-20% overstated. In other words, the majority of law firms charge Richter more than they are allowed to in their agreement with Richter. Unfortunately, only a handful of internal auditors are on staff to perform these audits and, hence, the vast majority – over 80% – of the legal bills go unaudited. If these legal bills could be audited, Richter would save millions per year in legal fees.

The JPI system allows law firms to submit legal bills to Richter electronically for payment. The system performs an automatic audit on the invoices in the electronic document based on a set of threshold rules and math checks. Some reductions are made automatically. Other invoice line items are flagged for manual review by internal auditors. The system then provides tools for the auditor to do the audit more quickly. After an invoice is complete, an Explanation of Payment (EOP) is sent to the claim adjuster and made available to the law firm via an online “inbox” provided by the external site. Emails are sent to the adjuster using AspQMail and Lotus Notes.

As architect and developer on this project, I was responsible for designing and building the manual review interface and for designing and building an interface which allows admin personnel to set up law firms, agreements, roles, timekeepers, and other key items in the database. I was also responsible for overseeing the design and construction of the law firm interface as well as implementation of certain business rules in the overall system. I was responsible for maintaining the DB2 and SQL Server 7 versions of the ERD. DB2 was the production database but both Access and SQL Server 7 were used in prototyping.

I was responsible for the architecture of the system overall and its integration with existing Richter facilities. I was responsible for selecting and configuring the web server and application server hardware. External user logon is performed by Webthority against the enterprise LDAP server. The proxy server maintains the 128-bit SLL certificates. The web sites are hosted on two web servers with business components residing on an application server. The web servers have hardware-based load balancing using Network Dispatcher. The web servers are running NT 4 with IIS 4. The application server is running NT 4 and ADO 2.5. Data access is restricted to the application server for security reasons. All business and data access components are located on the application server and referenced on the web servers via DCOM.

The internal web site is comprised of almost 9,000 lines of ASP code across over 30 web documents. A single COM object is used and is comprised of over 3,000 lines of Visual Basic 6 code. The invoice loader application is an additional 2,000 lines of VB code. I was responsible for the code reviews of the external site and the EOP object.

Technologies Used:

Active Server Pages (ASP), Visual Basic 6 Enterprise Edition, COM, DCOM, HTML, ADO, MTS, IBM DB2 Universal Database, IIS 4, XML, LEDES EDI / XML specification, SQL Server 7, Webthority, LDAP, JavaScript, VBScript, saFileUp, AspQMail, 128-bit SSL

B-PLUS Architecture Migration Assessment

This was a short, two week engagement. I was contracted by Richter to analyze a small, 2-tier application written in VB with an IBM DB2 Universal Database backend. The application was originally intended only for departmental use. The application was very successful and popular, though, and had been rewritten and / or extended for three additional lines of business. I examined two versions of the application and documented a migration path to convert them from the 2-tier architecture to a scaleable 3-tier architecture using VB and COM, ASP, MTS, and the existing DB2 database. I analyzed each form and code module in the VB application and documented the complexities of the forms and the functions in the code. I itemized the tasks for separating the application into 3 tiers. I assessed the current IIS infrastructure and made recommendations for maximizing performance, scalability, and availability. I also assessed the possibility of deploying the application using CITRIX nFuse as a quick method of getting the application out to users on the web. Finally, I assessed the challenges in interfacing the application with existing or pending CORBA Java components using a COM / CORBA bridge or SOAP.

Technologies Used:

Active Server Pages (ASP), Visual Basic 6 Enterprise Edition, COM, HTML, ADO, RAO, DAO, MTS, IBM DB2 Universal Database, CORBA, IBM WebSphere, Java, Java Beans, CITRIX, IIS 4, SOAP, XML


My responsibilities as enterprise architect for Richter were as follows:

  • Analyze existing VB 6 forms and code modules
  • Analyze existing DB2 schema and SQL statements
  • Meet with various business owners and managers to determine scalability requirements
  • Redesign application using ASP and VB6 COM
  • Write comprehensive migration plan, including project plan with resource and work estimates
  • Write Executive Summary describing migration strategy
Sept 2000 – Oct 2000

Internet Web Site s original Internet site was built using a 2-tier architecture. When I started at Hippo my first responsibilities were to help them finish moving the original site over to a 3-tier architecture using ASP, VB COM, and SQL Server 7. I was responsible for the RFP functionality, the region maps, modifications to property searches, and the Hippo Direct functionality. Each area required five to a dozen functions in a COM object and usually a half dozen stored procedures. Once the site had been migrated to the new architecture, it was moved to the production servers.

The Hippo Direct and RFP features both used CDO and scheduled NT processes to automate sending of user email messages.

Hippo did not have a replication architecture in place prior to my arrival. They also did not have separate development and staging environments or solid code promotion procedures. I contributed significantly in planning and deciding how to implement replication and how to design and promote between a multi-stage server environment.

Technologies Used:

Active Server Pages (ASP), MS Visual InterDev 6.0, MS SQL Server 7.0, DTS packages, all types of SQL Server replication, Windows NT Server 4.0, IIS 4, HTML, JavaScript, VBScript, Transact-SQL, ADO, PC AnyWhere, MS Visual Source Safe 6, Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS), SMTP, Collaboration Data Objects (CDO), Visual Basic 6 Enterprise Edition, COM

Nalco Project Proposal

DRS contracted me as an interim practice manager for their new e-commerce practice. They had an immediate opportunity with Nalco that required quick business requirements gathering and analysis. I attended several client meetings with the DRS account manager to interview key client personnel. During these interviews I documented the requirements of the applications needed and other details which I would use to assess the complexity of the project and estimate an accurate work effort. After the client interviews I went back and broke the project down into several stages for each application. For each application I identified technologies which I believed would yield the best cost-benefit ratio. For each stage I identified the resources needed and assigned tasks to each resource. When the project plan was complete I created a formal project proposal which documented the overall scope of the project and detailed costs and schedule estimates. Once DRS approved the project proposal, we submitted it to the client.

Technologies Used:

Lotus Notes 4.6 / 5.0, Microsoft IIS, Microsoft Access, Microsoft Project, various other technologies considered including SAP and Oracle

Bill Tompson, LLP
Apr 2000 – Jul 2000


When I first started at Bill Thompson, my responsibility was to learn the EOR application and to begin debugging the existing version. When a bug is reported, a System Investigation Request (SIR) is created by the tester and assigned by management to one of the developers. I completed several dozen major SIRs, the application was promoted to production, and the EOR code base was used to generate additional applications: QARM, Fraud, BPO, and BRCA. Each application was then customized to the specific requirements of the application sponsor.

There were approximately 100 ASP pages, written with VBScript, in the EOR application with a significant amount of embedded JavaScript routines. There were also about 50 SQL stored procedures and several COM objects served via MTS. The database used was SQL Server 7 running on NT 4.

One of the other responsibilities I had was to manage a daily data migration between application data stores on several SQL Servers, some V6.5 and some V7.0. The migration code was encapsulated inside of several DTS packages and scheduled with the SQL Server Agent. The packages moved approximately 600,000 records each day, some requiring BCP due to translation of code page specific characters to Unicode (nvarchar). Replication was investigated, proven, and is due to be implemented in the environment soon.

Several application components and modules were written in Visual Basic, compiled, and promoted to production to run when needed or on a scheduled basis. One of the applications used CDO and SMTP to automate emailing statistical reports to management.

Another task required me to use the Wise Installation system to create installation executables to install EOR-based applications on multiple web servers. The installation was required to set up ODBC connections, install COM objects into MTS, and install all ASP code and HTML pages.

Technologies Used:

Active Server Pages (ASP), MS Visual InterDev 6.0, MS SQL Server 7.0, MS SQL Server 6.5, DTS packages, Windows NT Server 4.0, IIS 4, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), HTML, DHTML, JavaScript, VBScript, Transact-SQL, Software Artisans saFileUp, ADO, Timbuktu Pro, Platinum ERwin, MS Visual Source Safe 6, Lotus Notes / Domino 4.6.1, Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS), SMTP, Collaboration Data Objects (CDO), Visual Basic 6 Enterprise Edition, COM/DCOM

General Motors Corporation
Sept 1999 – Jan 2000

General Motors Corporation (GM) hired Proxicom as general project management and architecture contractors for “their site. I was one of 3 primary project managers for the effort. I was responsible for the site rollout in Mexico, Taiwan, Brazil, and Australia. The entire team was made up of over 300 contractors from 9 different vendors, including IBM Global Services, EDS, CompuWare, and others.

I worked with the architecture team (30+ architects) in planning the Version 1 a rchitecture and the Version 2 architecture. The majority of my contributions on the architecture team were in the area of configurator selection and implementation. The configurator software, provided by a third party, allows a customer to select various options on a car. This is a hugely complex piece of software as it has to keep track of all the options combinations, the cost of each, and various rules regarding inclusion and exclusion of additional options.

Additionally, I participated heavily in the construction of a single UI to be used in all 40 initial rollout countries and the underlying components which allowed local variables such as postal code vs. zip code to be resolved. I spent several weeks in Australia leading a team of 18 developers, architects, UI designers, and several business strategists in working directly with the Holden company of GM to implement the Holden version of There were quite a lot of technical and political challenges to resolve in Australia, including differences in calculating distance to dealerships based on latitude and longitude, postal code, and legal issues regarding storage of personal data. The Holden site was run on NT with IIS and ASP. We spent a lot of time revising the ASP to match the functionality of the JSP used in the United States version of buypower.

Corporate Intranet (Archie)

McDonald s hired USWeb to lead the effort in building their corporate Intranet, later called “Archie”. The Intranet was to be rolled out to the 3,000 or so Oak Brook employees with a view toward rolling out to all 8,000 or so US domestic employees. Access to some Intranet applications would be given to McDonald s suppliers via extranet and to the Owner / Operator stores. The Intranet would then be rolled out internationally after that. When I left they were beginning to roll out to Sweden using Domino R5.

I was the project manager, lead architect, and LotusScript and ASP coder. The system was hosted in various point releases of R4.6.x of Lotus Domino and IIS 4 on NT 4. All of the Intranet data – articles, press releases, etc. – were stored in Notes databases for security reasons. The home page of the Intranet was hosted on NT as was the content editor. The home page was made up of modules which were periodically updated by an NT service. The NT service would connect to Notes through ODBC (not easy) and pull headlines and article summaries out of the database to populate these modules. In addition, there was a polling / survey module which had its data stored in an Access 97 database. The content management interface was used by almost 100 content managers throughout the organization to post their articles and other content. The content management interface was in Notes but the forms where the actually content editing was done was ASP because of a dependence on DHTML and IFRAMEs.

Project: ID Administration 2.0

Description: The IDAdministration application is being developed using XML based messaging architecture. The XML based messaging subsystem is used to communicate between each of the software components. The web layer consists of JSP and servlets processing requests from the web. In the web layer a XML message is formed, this message consists the relevant information for the target operation to be performed. For example if four users are to be added to different target machines, there will be four transaction messages built. Each transaction is a child of a parent request. The requests are submitted to transaction handler, which dispatches each transaction to the business logic engine, which spawns a new thread for each transaction. The number of thread and database connections are configured based on the load.

Business rule layer is a multi threaded Java based server, which has pools of custom worker threads waiting for requests to be processed from the request queue. This module implements the business rule logic using a custom state machine and whose rules are stored in DB2. On retrieving a request from the request queue the business rule manager assigns it to one or more worker thread s . These worker threads are responsible for executing the business rule logic. At the end of processing a response XML message is formed, which contains status of each transaction.
