Bank EDA + API Led Solution

The client used FSC, Silverlake, and Fortiva. All for different uses within their business operations. The requirements were 0 message loss, future scalability, event-driven operations. Thus, we implemented Mule + Solace. We were able to develop the bounded context data models for each respective APIs. Furthermore, we developed the applications and queues/topics leveraging ServiceMesh to account for the different topologies of systems. Integration is in production and working seamlessly.

Java MicroService Conversion Project

Had to take a stack of Java of Microservices and convert it into Mule alongside new greenfield integrations in scope. This took many hours of analysis to determine the functionality of the existing code that wasn't properly built. Furthermore, I developed the DataModels for the organization and implementations from scratch. Also, I was a contributing member in standing up the RunTime Fabric environment on the network.
