I was responsible for reviewing customer requirements, designing a working framework, then producing ANT builds and deployment of finished results. Duties included installation and setup of Apache web and JBOSS application servers, application and database tuning for performance bottlenecks.

Requests entering Comcast are sent to the service bus and then validated and routed to the appropriate service. Understanding of SOA, Xquery, Oracle and the WebLogic J2EE container was required for successful completion. Also I worked with cable set top box, and modem on demand monitoring. This consisted of creating daily data feeds from multiple Oracle data warehouses, accessing set top and modem health, and JSP development to create a query enabled view of aggregated data.
