My company was running an electronic data interchange service and my job as the retail and banking developer was to integrate our EDI client software with the service users system. I was required to understand a number of RDBMS such as Mysql, Oracle, Informix, Catch, Ms Sql Server etc. I had to develop a system in java that would use JDBC to insert or select the required data for all our clients systems thus integrating the EDI client with the service users system.

I am currently working on server side development including management of projects and leading the java development team. Developed and still testing an online auction [eauction.basictec.co.uk] and portal site [www.basictec.co.uk] which implements the use of jsp, servlets, Java beans, JMS, Java mail and JDBC technology. I did also work on a mini sms gateway for one of our clients using JMS just to mention a few. I have gained strong experience with J2EE, J2SE, Apache Tomcat, MySql, Solaris UNIX, SuSe Linux and with the Eclipse IDE.
I feel that I have the necessary skills to develop applications on Java J2EE, J2SE and implement them on Apache Tomcat, MySql, UNIX or Linux just to mention a few that I feel I have truly mastered. I have demonstrated good teamwork, communication skills, time management and problem solving were I have worked in the past and will continue to do so. Having developed a number of applications in PHP for a number of clients has made me feel confident enough to develop on this platform on a full time basis as and when requested.
