I just started as a Java Architect at Université Catholique de Louvain and I still need sometime to share my results there. But in my previous professional experience, working for Intrasoft International, I have been working as a Java Architect for SOA and BPM Projects. In my academic experience, doing master at Université catholique Louvain, Belgium, I have contributed to the field of Enterprise Engineering by developing an alternative and cost effective model for business process and IT alignment from a user interaction perspective. Doing PhD at the same university, I have contributed to the field of multimedia by proposing a workflow for multimedia processing, from production to archiving, where media companies can adapt their content to the web, including indexation and search capabilities.
I have an extensive background on Java Technologies, with more than 10 years of experience, developing desktop and web applications for a variety of businesses. It makes me interested in Java-based projects, mainly the ones directly related to the JEE specification, such as Enterprise Java Beans (EJB 3), Java Persistence API (JPA2) , Java Server Faces (JSF2), JAX-WS and JAX-RS.
In the last 4 years, my experience has grown towards service-oriented architectures, from SOAP-based and RESTful web services to Enterprise Service Bus (ESB). At some point, due to the complexity of the business, it is unavoidable to deal with rule engines to give flexibility to experts to customize rules according to the dynamicity of the business. I have integrated and used Drools for this specific purpose.
I have accumulated a valuable writing experience, delivering a total of 18 publications spread in Journals, conference proceedings and book chapters. My latest contribution was a chapter in the book “REST: From Research to Practice”, published by Springer.
