Senior Software Engineer (Research And Development Group)

Role: Lead Developer, Architect & Mentor Domain: Financial Application


Developed Credit Union Software for a Canadian client. I worked in Extreme Programming methodology with short iteration cycles of the product. I worked on server side java (JDBC with reflection, Stored Procedures) with SQL Server 2000 and Oracle 9i. My role was to develop Database level, Helper level and API level APIs. I also worked on JSP UI that extensively uses JavaScript and HTCs. I also work on seed data generation and writing stored procedure as and when required. Extreme Programming and Short Iterative Cycles give opportunity to work on whole life cycle development of the software product.

Tools: Forte, Eclipse, Edit plus, Clear Case, Junit, Tomcat and Apache in Windows 2000 environment. Team Size: 20



Senior Software Engineer (Research And Development Group)

Role: Sr. Developer, Architect and Mentor                 Domain: Windchill Foundation 6.2, PDMLINK 6.2 and ProductView


PTC makes Windchill, which is a robust, Web-based 3-tier suite of collaborate software application written in pure Java for product development. Windchill is a Product Data Management System (PDM) . It provides a secure environment for product lifecycle management that allows enterprises to integrate business processes and product data with dispersed divisions, partners, and customers. Customers like General Motors and Boeing use Windchill. It is used by thousands of concurrent users in distributed environment. The following were my accomplishments at PTC.


·          Developed a new improved product. I worked extensively on full life cycle development of the WindchillExpress product namely, Requirement, Analysis, Design, Development and Deployment Accomplished distributed Server Side Architecture and APIs for WindchillExpress product using JSP, Servlets, Sockets, JavaBean, JDBC (SQL, Transactions with Oracle8i), RMI. I used patterns. I also developed middle layer server APIs involving every aspect of Windchill. I wrote around 190 API components in Java and same number of APIs in Java and XML. Developed client in JavaSwing and Applets. Used SOAP to support non-java clients. I also had to extensively deal with XML and SOAP. Reduced bugs by performing Unit and System testing. Worked in both UNIX and Windows environment. I used VisualCafe, Tomcat, Apache, JRun, LDAP server, SQL Plus.

·          Advanced Windchill by giving it ability to visualize 3D products using JNI and Sockets. This was achieved by integrating Windchill (Written in Sun’s Java) with a 3D visualization application (written in Microsoft’s VC++). I had to do this in both UNIX and Windows environment. This was very technically challenging and complex, as the ActiveX control was visual one. Ensured bi-directional communication. I used MainWin to mimic Windows OS on UNIX.

·          Advanced testing by developing server side APIs in Java for Programmatic Automation and Regression Testing. I wrote 110 JavaBean components. I worked within in-house PART framework.

·          Data Modeled Using Rational Rose (Use Cases, Class Diagrams, Sequence Diagram, Object Diagram, Activity Diagram, Deployment Diagram ….) for Windchill Express product.

·          Developed Client Interfaces of the three-tier system in JavaSwing and JSPs for Java client of Windchill. For Visual Basic client used SOAP client in VB 6.0 environment, developed dll, made 190 API calls through SOAP and parsed XML. This had extensive use of SOAP and XML.

·          Developed elaborate prototype using j2ee/Weblogic/websphere application servers for various possible jsp architecture patterns. Compared performances. Used JSP, Servlets, EJB and worker JavaBeans. Used MVC, Factor Forward- Factor Back, Page-centric, Dispatcher, Singleton.

·          Eliminated bugs by fixing SPRs of Windchill Foundation product.

·          Technically lead a team of 4 engineers. Collaborated with other groups. The team size was 10.

·          Accomplished support of other teams as and when required. I am very good at teamwork, planning and proactive-attitude.
