I have been working in Java related technologies for over 15 years and specialise in Java EE, particularly application server problem solving and middleware integrations.

I provide affordable and ingenious solutions to seemingly complex issues. I am well known for providing quick wins and always achieve delivery on-time and within budget.
Migrating Java applications between platforms
I have been involved in many enterprise level integrations where problem solving and ability to challenge existing approaches has lead to solutions.
Application infrastructure planning and design
Due to my extensive cross technology experience as developer, administrator, trainer and consultant I am able to provide the technical deep-dive required and applied business communication.
Java application debugging
I specialise in finding the reason behind production issues and recommending solutions.
Java EE application server training
I have provided many training courses for IBM WebSphere, Oracle WebLogic and RedHat JBoss, teaching both developers and administrators the correct JEE approach to Java application development destined for today’s Java EE containers.
Continuous integration strategy and implementations
I have many years experience as being part of many large enterprise projects where the automation of CI and devops are critical for success.
Evaluation of JEE application, packaging & compliancy
Many of my clients engage my services to ensure their products are easy to install, comply with standards and are ready for multi-platform application server's including JEE cluster design and management.
Java based mobile application design and integration engines
I am personally very experienced in designing full bidirectional data exchange mobile solutions for both device and server back-end technologies at an enterprise level.

Did you know that I offer online training courses ?

For many years now, the only real informative courses on the topic of WebSphere Application Server have come from IBM education, or Oracle University at considerable personal costs. Typically these courses cost several 1000’s of dollars each. This has now all changed.

Using my consulting knowledge and success as published author, I have have created digital online courses available for download for less then 5% of the normal cost of these courses.
