The Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) architecture and platform is an open source vendor independent platform used to develop and deploy large-scale enterprise applications. J2EE has been widely adopted by the industry and is supported by all the leading software and hardware companies. Recent advances in the J2EE platform include improved Web services support and support for the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). Since systems built using J2EE can be deployed on Windows, Linux, or Unix without changing the application, development investments are protected as platform technologies evolve.
Benchmark uses industry best practices such as the Model View Controller architecture, J2EE design patterns, and the Unified Modeling Language to speed design work while reducing risk.
Our approach will take you through the following steps:
• Strategy Briefing
The Strategy Briefing allows you to evaluate your current Java development, portal, or EAI strategy against both your current IT environment and your business objectives. The briefing delivers a clear picture on how Benchmark's J2EE technologies can help you reach your business goals.
• Architecture Design Session
The Architectural Design Session delivers in-depth Architectural information on how to solve your business problems leveraging your current infrastructure and Open source Platform. Our consultants are experts in architecture in all of the following products / services: J2EE technologies, Java/XML interfaces for web services, and many platforms including WebLogic, WebSphere, Apache Web Server, Netscape, and TomCat running on Windows, UNIX, and LINUX. This workshop includes presentations, demonstrations and whiteboard discussions.
• Proof of Concept Workshop
The Proof of Concept Workshop provides an in-depth workshop where Benchmark consultants work closely with key members of your staff to develop prototypes for custom solutions. These sessions include detailed demonstrations, training sessions, and the development of a working prototype.
• Development and Delivery
Once the proof of concept workshop is evaluated and approved, Benchmark selects a team of seasoned engineers to build and deploy the solutions into production.
Our services include:
- Enterprise Application Integration
- Defining and Implementing Migration Strategies
- Defining J2EE Architectures, Infrastructure, and Frameworks
- Applying the Rational Unified Process and Component Based Development
- Designing and Implementing J2EE and Java-based N-Tier Applications
Benchmark has successfully delivered several solutions that leverage J2EE and Java for mission-critical enterprise systems. These have ranged from building enterprise application integration strategies for migrating from legacy systems to designing and implementing J2EE based applications.
