Office of Info Technology



This contract is for one (1) Product Specialist 5 to be assigned to maintain application support for the eCATS enterprise application. eCATS is a browser-based web, n-tiered software application developed using Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE).
CATS is a browser-based web, n-tiered software application developed using Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE) technologies.

Web Server
The web server software selected to support the eCATS application is the Sun Java System Web Server, version 6.1 Service Pack 3.
The eCATS web servers are responsible for communicating with the user's web browser by receiving and responding to hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP) requests. These requests include static and dynamic content. Static content will be served directly from the web servers and includes hypertext markup language (HTML) pages, cascading style sheets, JavaScript libraries, and images. Dynamic content requests are routed to one of the eCATS application servers for processing; the results of the processing are then returned to the user through the web server.


Application Server
Glassfish 2.1 with clustering and HADB has been chosen to host eCATS.
The eCATS application is developed using Java Platform Enterprise Edition (Java EE) design patterns and technologies, which require an application server container in which to operate and execute. Within the eCATS hardware topology the application server is the middle tier and contains the majority of the application's business logic. Glassfish 2.1 provides the J2EE services required by eCATS; these include Java Database Connectivity (JDBC), Java Naming Directory Interface (JNDI), Java Messaging (JMS), database connection pooling, and Java Server Page (JSP) support. This version supports clustering and includes a high availability database (HADB) to provide a highly available application server environment.

Database

The eCATS application was created to execute on an Oracle database, currently version 11g.

Apache Ant 1.6.5 and J2SDK 1.6 applications need to be installed on the machine that is used to generate the .ear files.
We are looking for an independent problem-solving developer with strong technical, interpersonal and collaborative skills to join our team. As a Java Developer with expertise in recent and current development technologies, you will be part of the team who owns the entire application experience. You will have opportunities to design and implement code and data interfaces that will be used for business critical applications.
We are looking for experienced Software Engineers who:
Have the ability to quickly develop and deliver clean, fast and high quality code and interfaces using a variety of current Java technologies and front-end languages
Possess excellent problem solving and debugging skills to rapidly identify and fix defects
Are willing to actively participate in design discussions, code reviews and code analysis
Can identify, implement and manage code libraries that minimize repetitive code and improve application design
Ability to work effectively and function as a team member, with clients and management as required to quickly design, develop and deploy high quality enterprise web applications
Understand software development architectures including n-tier and MVC
Embrace Agile/Scrum methodologies and development best practices
