Summary of my Java development work at Verizon

Java EE

Evolved the EJB 2.0 architecture to light weight EJB 3.0 and POJOs with persistence having the goal of the RESTful model, no state maintained on the application server session. Moved from clustered to distributed systems.
MVC Pattern

The View as JSP web pages evolving from using tag libraries and densely formatted html markup to sending and receiving data in JSON format through AJAX calls in Javascript frameworks (ExtJS 4). The controller component consisting of the Java servlets communicating with the EJBs and POJOs APIs as wrappers to the model.

RESTful Web Services.

Used for transferring documents  between applications.
POST requests to upload a document and GET requests to download a document or retrieve document listings.

Built with Spring HATEOAS web services wrapper of Apache HTTP Commons APIs with the URI as a good match to a document path.
SOAP web services

Used for requesting data between applications. Built with the Eclipse IDE and Apache Axis libraries.
Security was provided by restricting access through a Verizon service registry.

Java OO design

Coordinated with offshore development teams on code review and utilizing OO design patterns.
Rolled up disparate implementations of the same functionality and standardized frameworks.
