Project: My Account Service
Date: January-September 2010
Upgrade aging technology to improve customer experience when using the My Account Service section of the Club website. The solution had to be capable of accommodating future enhancements: integrating other applications such as a CRM system and a travel partner. In addition the architecture had to be ready to support mobile devices.
Transition from 10-year old technology and design to a user-friendly and intuitive design using current interactive technology. The legacy system, based on Java Server Pages commingled database code, page design code, and functional code. As a result, it was very difficult to make changes to the pages. The new application would have to be sufficiently flexible to be deployed at all Clubs in the e-Biz consortium with all Club-specific features and design handled by a configuration file and appropriate style sheets.
Our solution was to use a Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture. The Model represents the business or database code, the View represents the page design code, and the Controller represents the navigational code. The Open Source Struts 2 framework from the Apache Software Foundation gave us the environment we needed to make this come into being, and to separate business logic from the user interface.
