On Monday morning, we decided to keep the existing architecture of the BOSS System. The reason of not modifying the BOSS System architecture at this time is because there is no one with sufficient skills and experience to implement the new structure using standard JSP and Servlet technology.
Keeping the existing architecture may not look like the way forward for BOSS System. As I mention earlier, skills shortage limits our ability to make any major changes to the BOSS System. Further more, the existing BOSS System has been known to be a secure working system.
Therefore, perhaps keeping the existing architecture is a chance for me to concentrate on my project on BOSS System. Over the next few weeks, I will have to tidy up all the codes that I have written for my third year project to give the BOSS System web application a new interface. I will talk about the new interface in my next entry.
