Project Highlights

  • Worked with a team to build the ASP.NET 1.1 web-based application that used the Envision™ 1.0 API for data object management.
  • I handled the design and implementation of the UI architecture to consist of application specific ASPX and ASCX base classes that inherited from shared base class. The web applications consisted of empty ASPX pages that dynamically loaded page specific and company specific user controls into a single common HTML shell. This model allowed all builders to share common page functionality while implementing specific pages, as needed, for individual builder's needs.
  • I also designed and implemented a single sign-on SQL based session object, similar to the ASP.NET session model, which allowed sharing the same session ID and data across multiple web applications.
  • To provide manufacturers and builders the ability to create custom HTML rich-media marketing materials, I integrated Ektron's CMS400.NET content management system into the Envision applications. The single sign-on solution dynamically created the organizations, users, groups, and permissions when the user initially launched Ektron. I also built a custom C# class to extend Ektron's basic ASP functionality and allow customization of the Ektron UI and content creation process.
