My Role

I was one of the lead developers on this ecommerce build (built for a Micros client), and I continue to complete code maintenance and updates on this site.

A few high-level details

  • It is based on OCP (Open Commerce Platform developed by Fry)
  • It is a Java based system, the frontend group worked mostly in the JSP template files
  • It is a fixed width site
  • We used a proprietary javascript organization system for the frontend functionality
  • We also used jQuery
  • There was a team of three Interface Developers working on the site

Something Learned

One of the parts that gave us some frustration, but also some learning experiences was the brand slider that is present on the home page and also the interior category pages. There were a lot of client requirements on this, and we had a lot of communication with the backend team as well.
