- Re-hired back into former position (see full description under 07/08 - 09/12 period) to address backlog of work for a 1 year budgeted contract period.
- Responsible for all change requests for enhancements and new functionality for the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS) web business application.
- Completed on time my estimated 8 month project for doing the initial research and then full migration of a current large Struts 1.39 project (PPIRS) code base to Struts 2.3.
During this period of unprecedented economic recession, I invested my time and energy in myself by continuing development on several personal on-going complex Java/J2EE web and Swing projects, as well as investigating the basics of front end communication components of the Spring framework.
07/08 - 09/12: U.S. Department of Defense NAVSEA NSLC, Portsmouth, NH
- Continued development of several complex ongoing Java/J2EE web based (and Java Swing) projects.
- Also investigated Spring (2.5 and 3.5) by working on the controller layer of a simple application.
Under Dell Systems Government Services (formerly Perot Systems) contracting to the U.S. Department of Defense Naval Sea Logistics Command. (Position terminated due to Reduction In Force.)
- U.S. DoD Secret Security Clearance required to work in a Restricted area at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.
- Responsible for all change requests for enhancements and new functionality for the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS) web business application. This critical application processes delivery and quality performance metric data from all DoD service branches and condenses it into summary and detail analysis reports for both contractors and government administrators. The application is used primarily by government administrators to determine contract awards to non-government companies.
- Sole designer and developer of the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System, (FAPIIS) application. This application was designated by the DoD to be the sole source for government administrators to obtain adverse performance and debarment information on companies and individules doing business with the DoD. For this, I wrote numerous web service client modules using Axis web services to access required information at other government agencies. However, government policy changed, and I rewrote all of these Axis services into JWS under Metro web services.
- Sole designer and developer of the FAPIIS Public Access application, a congressionally mandated system for public open access to PPIRS data. I wrote JWS under Metro web services components for both client and server web services for this effort.

These were client facing back office and administration applications fleet managers use to manage the dependencies between their fleets, cards, vehicles, and drivers.
- Completed approximately 120 defect or enhancement tickets, of which 6 were extensive UI to backend feature enhancements or major business process flow changes.
- About sixty percent effort was in the server side java business objects using JUnit/MockObjects where appropriate. Many times, work required creation of new controller Action classes and associated helper object graphs. Where reasonable and possible, I tried to incorporate strategy, command, and factory design patterns as there were few interfaces or use of polymorphism in these systems.
- The remaining five percent of my time was either using JDBC or making adjustments to existing SQL.

- Coded Java server side servlet/pojo objects, sometimes requiring creation of an entire new object graphs from a new initiating controller servlet to encapsulate new business functionality.
