CAREER OBJECTIVE:
A position that will utilize my development experience in an environment that will take advantage of WEB or desktop
development for Intranet, Internet or Extranet environments.

Work Experience:

February 2005    U.S. Army Recruiting Command – Ft. Knox: Responsibilities include the capture and documentation
To Present       of requirements and the design, development, testing and maintainenance of web applications. During this
                 time I worked on teams of 4 to 8 developers. We developed web enabled Java/J2EE applications based on
                 the Struts framework. My development efforts were both in the GUI interface used by the end user, and on
                 the server side web application. The development environment utilized Eclipse for the IDE, Xdoclet as a
                 source code generation engine, and Maven to compile and package the ear for deployment. I
                 was responsible for developing my own Sybase stored procedures and SQL and unit testing.
                 Once developed we turned our stored procedures and SQL over to a project DBA who reviewed
                 our code and then moved the stored procedures and SQL into the test environment. Ultimately
                 when the project went live our stored procedure and SQL were also moved into by the DBA.

January 2004     Hodgson Technology Solutions Inc.: Working as a consultant on various projects for small businesses.
to               During this time the maintenance and development was on Java/J2EE based applications running
February 2005    in an Apache environment, using the Apache web server and the Tomcat application server. Database
                 support came from a MYSQL database. Maintenance work was on a Java/J2EE application that used a
                 custom frame work for its development, while the new development was a Java/J2EE applications’ using
                 the Struts application frame work. During this time I was responsible for developing the GUI interface used
                 for collecting data from a site visitor and formatting the collected data into an email message sent to the
                 appropriate contact person. Work was preformed in both the back end and the actual page development
                 using both JavaScript and custom tags where appropriate. The application itself was developed using the
                 Apache Struts framework. I also worked with xml source files when working with the configuration files for
                 Apache Tomcat, with the deployment descriptor elements defined in the web.xml file. The custom Tag
                 Library Descriptor files were used to define the custom tags used within the application.

March 2003    Paciolan – formerly known as Ticket Innovations: Working as a senior application developer in an
to            Internet software company. During this time I developed two Java/J2EE based applications that were
December 2003 used to replace a Coldfusion based group ticketing product. On this project I was responsible for the
              development of the backend Oracle database, the middleware application and the GUI interface that was
              used to administer ticket sales on the client side and the GUI interface that was used by the customer to
              purchase tickets. On the client side the GUI interface was designed as a wizard that would walk the user
              through the process of setting up a ticket sales package. The actual web page development was done
              using both JavaScript and custom tags where appropriate, the application itself was developed using a
              propriety framework similar to the Apache Struts framework. For this project I used xml when working with
              the configuration files for Apache Tomcat, with the deployment descriptor elements defined in the web.xml
              file, and with the custom Tag Library Descriptor files used to define the custom tags used within the
              application.

October 2001     Hodgson Technology Solutions Inc. - Ticket Innovations: Working as consultant to an Internet
to               software company. During this time I worked with Coldfusion as the development tool, on an
March 2003       application that would be used for group ticket sales, and for season ticket holder ticket management. One
                 of my tasks was to restructure the oracle database to support required changes in the ticket sales process,
                 and the requirement to support multiple teams at a single venue. The actual web page development was
                 done using both JavaScript and custom Coldfusion tags where appropriate. Once the Coldfusion
                 application was stable and supporting the current client base, analysis and development started in
                 converting the Coldfusion application into a Java/J2EE based application using a revised version of the
                 Oracle database currently being used. At this time I was responsible for analyzing the current user
                 interface for both the client application and the customer application, and then designing a more intuitive
                 interface. During this time I also developed Oracle procedures that would be used in the maintenance of
                 data stored in Oracle tables. The procedures were to be used in maintaining data integrity in the various
                 ticket maintenance actions that could take place.

April 2000       Ticket Innovations: Working as a senior application developer in an Internet software company.
to               During this time I worked on developing Visual Basic based desktop application software that
October 2001     needed to be coordinated with the development of the same application as a Web based solution. I worked
                 on project teams consisting of a graphic arts designer, Web developers, other Visual Basic application
                 developers, and a DBA. The project was to develop a ticket management application that would function
                 both on the desk top and over the web. During this time I was responsible for designing and developing
                 backend VB modules that would be used by both a desktop application and web pages in the administration
                 of tickets for sporting and entertainment events. I also worked on the development of stored procedures
                 and triggers that would be used in maintaining the ticketing data in a SQL server database. The
                 procedures were used for the maintaining data integrity in the various ticket maintenance actions that could
                 take place. On this project data that was to be used both in a web application and within a VB desktop
                 application was managed as an extracted xml data file. Here I was responsible for the data layout for the
                 xml data file, and I designed and wrote the parsing routines used in the VB desktop application. The
                 parsing routines were developed using the Microsoft XML parsing libraries.

February 1999    LifeServ Corporation: Working as a senior application developer in an Internet software company.
