Confidential, Vienna, VA


  • Designed and developed hold services of the modernized Air Manifest System for Customs officers and PGA to place/remove a hold on specific cargo shipments that need further examinations for various security and compliance reasons.
  • Practiced Agile Extreme Programming methodology by emphasizing on JUnit tests and continuous integration and short build cycle.
  • The services are architected as multi-layered (interface layer, business layer, and persistence layer) as in the sea and rail manifest project.
  • Designed and developed Inbond services of the modernized Sea and Rail Manifest System for brokers to request movement of imported cargo under bond via US Customs Automatic Broker Interface (ABI). The service is architected with three layers: 1) interface layer; 2) business layer; and 3) persistence layer.
  • The interface layer is consisted of session and message driven EJBs hooked up with Plain-Old-Java-Objects (POJO) in business layer by using Spring framework.
  • The business layer implemented business rules without worrying about EJB plumbing and persistence details.
  • And the persistence layer uses Hibernate to map Java objects to DB2 relational database tables.
  • Held joint Design Sessions (JDS) with CBP domain experts to finalize requirements and define business rules for truck manifest system.
  • Completed architecture, design, and service definitions.

Specifically, worked with Enterprise Architecture team and proposed a modified architecture for the portal system.
  • The original portal system was developed with portlets, a kind of servlets, which cannot handle native devices (such as RFID readers, barcode scanners, and SLIP printers used at customs primary booths) due to Java security model and performance requirements.
  • The proposed architecture consists of Swing for heavy internal users and portlets for trade and casual users.
  • It has been adopted by Customs in the Customs Modernization project.
