I very much enjoyed the business and market discussions on the Assured Labor project! I hope there could be more discussions on the commercial plan, entry strategies, and competitive advantages. As the class approaches the end, the project really boils down meeting the expectations.
We had a good discussion with the Assured Labor core development team. To provide the database transparency and reuse, we agreed to have a database layer between the application and the mysql database engine. We compared the two gateway solutions introduced in the class: java vs. php. Since we don’t really have a Linux environment, the team has decided to use a complete java solution. To support the scenarios of notification and reminder in the application, there are two database APIs are currently under implementation. The database layer will use JDBC to communicate with the mysql database engine.
