What to Look for in a Hyper-Effective Team of J2EE Developers
J2EE may be free open-source and, in the hands of the right developer, a powerful platform for multi-tier, Web-based applications. But easy it is not. Given technology that sees some new development practically every month, how do you find and screen highly effective J2EE developers?
Whether hiring for an in-house IT group or looking to outsource to an independent applications provider, the first step is to have a Java Architect working for you, not just a first-line, order-taker J2EE developer. This means broadminded thinkers who understand your business need, can conceptualize all the system components you need, and direct the J2EE developer team to ably link backend databases and servers, middleware and presentation layers.
At a software house like HyTech Professionals up in Nashua (NH), J2EE developers need not dazzle the unwary client with a blizzard of acronyms. An end-user organization gets much more comfortable learning from these quietly competent HyTech folks (www.hytechpro.com) about their completed Java systems integration work and end-to-end implementation of mission-critical J2EE applications.
For now, some parting advice: look askance at any J2EE developer still mired in pre-2005 technology like Enterprise Java Beans. Applications built solely with EJB are so irritatingly intrusive, hard to test and force such illogical design decisions. This is why a team of Java developers already comfortable with the Spring and Hibernate frameworks will be more likely to deliver what you want on time and under budget.
