We began creating our second Java application five years after we began the first app.
We were hoping the second application would give us a chance to use additional Java technologies.
We began by gathering all of the known functional requirements and matched them to the various
Java-related technologies we knew of.
The result was a high-level technical architecture of the application.

During our 10 years of using Java at Amway Corp., some of our solutions
required us to think a little "outside of the box".
Our application had a reporting requirement.
It had to generate reports from the application's various batch processes as they were running.
These batch processes performed transaction processing, data purging and data exporting functions.
The reports would not be used by...
It never ceases to amaze me where some solutions in application development come from.
We had a requirement for our application to allow a user to print pages of text.
The user would bring up a web page, from our app, and then create & print a list of customer names.
The list of names would be created by executing a SQL query against the database, using a variety of search criteria.
I’m someone who came to this field from a management, as opposed to technical, background. In an effort to understand this website and its users more fully, I am (slowly and painfully) teaching myself basic Java, reading every book handed to me, and jumping at the chance to attend any conference the Oracle Powers That Be will allow. One of my biggest hurdles has been the special technical...

As we began our Java adventure at Amway Corp 10 years ago,
one of the most important tasks we had to do was to create our Object Model.
We had a variety of Java objects that we were planning to use in our application.
How were they going to be "wired" together inside of the application?
After 4 weeks of Object-Oriented, J2SE, J2EE training; we set out to define our Object Model.
This model was...
OSCON 2012 started this morning with the first day of tutorials. I'll be registering this afternoon and am looking forward to Ignite tonight.
As we began to learn about Java technologies at Amway Corp, we were introduced to UML (Unified Modeling Language).
We became interested in the modeling aspect of UML to assist in the analysis and design phases of our Java project.
So we decided to try our hand at modeling with UML.
It began with 2 week-long training classes.
1) Object-Oriented Analysis with UML
2) Object-Oriented Design with UML...

The shift of focus will have a profound and enduring effect on the way we write programs.
