It's Not Magic, It's Work!

It's Alive!

On Monday we launched a shiny new web enabled project at work. We cleaned up the back end SAP system, removed the Java/Business Connector middleware and created a new Perl front end to replace and earlier one. We moved all the business logic from the middleware layer into the SAP layer, and all the presentational logic into the TT front, and glued them together with some Perl/SAP bespoke integration.

For the past 5 months we have worked on this project, of that time about two weeks was spent on writing Perl code, and the rest on configuration, testing and tweaking. Most of the Perl code is pretty much a single bespoke module that wraps around several much larger existing modules that do the actual work.

We have had a whole day of successful operation, and so far the user feedback has been only good!
