The research activities of creating the NexJ-CDOT knowledge base at CDOT-Seneca has three goals in mind.

  • It will enable new research students to go through a shorter learning curve in working with the huge code base of NexJ Model Server Express (i.e the NexJ Framework).
  • It will benefit the open source community of developers who want to make contributions to the NexJ Express code base.
  • It will be a repository of various software artifacts that have been produced during the process of working with the code base of NexJ Model Server Express.

Documents Provided by NexJ

  • Introduction To NexJ Studio Express (open sourced, available on Open Health Tools Platform) [1]
  • NexJ Studio Fundamentals (confidential and proprietary)
  • NexJ Studio - Integration Fundamentals (confidential and proprietary)
  • Working with NexJ Express Source Code (open sourced, available on Open Health Tools Platform)
  • NexJ Systems Developer's Guide (confidential and proprietary)

NexJ Software Engineering Practice

  • agile software engineering
    • SCRUM
      • the SQLite Adapter project
  • emphasis on performance and optimization
    • the PostgreSQL Adapter project [2]
      • "There was an emphasis placed on optimizing the code and making use of the things that PostgreSQL is “good at”." (Grace)
    • the JSON Message Adapter project
