April 2007 – October 2007
I worked with Norwich Union now known as Aviva to work on a project to integrate into their Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), several claim handling systems from document management, customer claim databases through to external parties that fulfil the claim. I was involved in the Service Orientated Architecture (SOA) design, implementation and testing of the schemas from Norwich Union, to two third parties. This involved addition complexities such as WS-Security via Norwich Unions LDAP, X509 certification and firewall issues.
- Liaise between external parties and senior management.
- Quality check, and challenge all technical documentation from software houses regarding proposed designs.
- Defining XML schemas (XSD) and WSDL for web services in Service Orientated Architectures (SOA), using tools such as XMLSpy.
- Implementing and testing of SSL certificates.
- Implementation of Soap WS-Security model using LDAP database for authentication.
- Write exception and load test functions using SoapUI for web services.
- Working with developers under a formal waterfall methodology developing J2EE web services.
- Use of VMWare Server to maximise development processes.
- Tracing SOAP messages end to end, checking correct conversions by XSLT’s.
- Configuration of SOAP under Apache’s Axis Framework.
- Formal documentation of all web service contracts.
