Summary

Delivered a Java-based document management system for managing 50 years of PDFs on-time after assuming project leadership when the Project Manager fell ill

Achievements

  • Delivered a user-friendly custom solution for publishing PDFs directly to the web via the enterprise document management system
  • Managed the project to completion when the original Project Manager had to excuse himself during a crucial phase of the project

Overview

We were charged with building an application to allow the customer to perform three essential tasks:

  • upload documents (as PDFs) to the web
  • manage those same documents via a web-based interface
  • Apply business rules to the documents based on embedded properties (e.g. PDF XMP metadata)

The first version of the system has already allowed the customer to publish and manage 10 years worth of documents. The next 40 years of documents were to be uploaded as the customer's schedule allowed.
