High-paced inter-carrier wireless messaging R&D environment where main technologies
1. J2EE: EJB 2.0 (Message Driven Beans, Session Beans, CMP and BMPs),
Java Messaging Service, Servlets.
2. J2SE: real-time multi-threaded TCP/IP programming with sockets as well
as over HTTP. Java Management Extensions (JMX): Standard MBeans;
3. Java web services: JAXB. JAXM, JAX-RPC, SOAP, Axis.
4. JSPs for demo screens and testing.
5. Struts to standardize testing and monitoring UI framework.
• XML: XSLT, XPath, XML Schema, DTD, SAX, DOM.
• Database: Oracle 8i/9i, SQL, PL/SQL, Oracle JDBC.
• Application Server: JBoss 3.x.
• Web Server: Tomcat, Apache.

• Substantial use of open source: Linux, JBoss, Ant, Log4J, CVS, NetBeans,
Eclipse, XDoclet, JUnit.
• Oracle: Oracle Enterprise Manager, JDeveloper. XML processing with XMLType
data type, CLOB and BLOBs.
Fine-tuned and brought solution to problems in the existing Oracle SQL and PL/SQL
code in production programmed by J2EE developers who did not have an in-depth
understanding of SQL and by Oracle DBAs and developers who did not know enough
Java or OOP.
Led design and development of high volume inter-carrier Short Messaging Service
(SMS) Gateway for Nokia’s CIMD2 protocol. This real-time system was hosted in JBoss
application server and Oracle 8i. JMX MBeans were used to kick off and monitor system
which contained multiple autonomous sub-systems implemented as Stateful and
Stateless Session EJBs (2.0), Java Messaging Service through Message Driven Beans,
asynchronous listener classes. This was a real-time applications with 24x7 high-volume
and concurrency requirements where efficient multithreading coupled with effective use
of SQL and PL/SQL were key to its success.
Designed and developed HTTP and SMTP gateways in a fashion similar to that of
CIMD’s to support CIMD2 and SMPP 3.4 SMS gateways such that SMS gateways could
communicate with different kinds of external entities e.g. client-sending message via
HTTP, e-mail gateway, etc. between the US wireless carriers and our potential client
overseas. EJBs (2.0), Servlets, JSPs and SQL are used.
Designed and developed demo system that provided TCP/IP based real-time SMS
message translation capabilities between English and Japanese, Korean, Traditional as
well as Simplified Chinese. EJBs (2.0), Servlets, JSPs and SQL were used.

etc could be added on the fly.
Design and implementation of interface for Vidiator MMS Transcoding web services so
that multimedia transcoding needs of high volume inter-carrier MMS messages could be
served real-time. Vidiator accepted service requests through HTTP as an XML file with
binary data embedded and responded in a similar fashion. I had the system set up such
that once they started using SOAP we would be ready to go. EJBs (2.0), Servlets, JSPs
and SQL were used in web services context.
Design and development of MM7 web services support for MMS systems using EJBs
(2.0), Servlets, JSPs and SQL.
R&D of the latest in J2EE/Java, Concurrency, XML and Oracle9i in order to innovate
and enrich our products.
ISDI (Interisland Systems Development and Integration) Inc, Honolulu, HI, USA
Sr. Systems Analyst, December 1999 – November 2002
Consulting Assignment 1999-November 2002:
Redesign and development of State of Hawaii Criminal Justice Data System.
My responsibilities could be summarized as work in the capacity of a system analyst,
system architect, software engineer and lead programmer. At the incubation phase of the
project, I convinced the management to go with XML and J2EE as choice of technology
and Java and SQL as the primary languages of development.
Led the effort to design and develop the server-side system interfaces to facilitate 24x7
exchange of information between various actors that are mainly state law enforcement
agencies, online as well as off-line end users and the criminal justice data warehouse.
Used a SDLC methodology similar to that of Rational Unified Process. This was a J2EE/
Java, XML, SQL/JDBC, DB2, JTA, CORBA, RMI-IIOP project. Wrote, tested and
debugged over a quarter million lines of Java and SQL code including most of the
transactional and non-transactional EJBs.
Software requirements specification through Object-Oriented Analysis.
System architecture modeling and prototyping of an evolutionary server-side
application framework, infrastructure and component model engineered to support highly
volatile business as well as technical requirements. The n-tiered application environment
mainly consisted of Sybase’s EAServer, J2EE/Java components, XML Parsers, DB2
relational database, SQL through JDBC technology, browser as well as server-side client
Object Oriented Design and Programming of the complete J2EE server-side
architecture which involved:
• A component-based distributed system that is programmed in Java, SQL and
XML within the framework of J2EE (EJB, Servlets and JSPs) which took about
1. EJB 1.x, 2.0: Bean as well as Container Managed Stateful and Stateless
Session Beans, Bean Managed Entity Beans to perform highly complex as
well simple transactions. I have designed and developed close to a hundred
EJBs for this system.
2. Servlets 2.x, JSP: as entry points and for reporting purposes.
3. Helper Java Classes: Business Rules, Infrastructure, Utilities, XML parse
helpers, Serializable bulk data accessors, JavaBeans classes which are good
4. Advanced SQL programming of complex search algorithms (RLM search) as
well as simple ones using JDBC 2.0 against DB2 database.
5. Transaction Management by EJB Container as well as using Java Transaction
6. XML programming using JAXP based DOM parser.
7. Supporting and leading the team for matters concerning server-side
components, Java, J2EE: EJBs and Servlets, JSPs, SQL, JDBC, XML, HTTP.
8. Gained in-depth understanding of EJBs, how distributed computing works;
CORBA, RMI/IIOP, stubs, skeletons, serialization issues, etc.
9. Use of UML, Design Patterns, Refactoring techniques.
10. Use of Visual Source Safe.
Testing and performance tuning of J2EE components, Java code, SQL statements,
application server configurations.
System is in production and was televised as an IT success story in the state of Hawaii.
