VERITAS Software Corporation
Staff Software Engineer
March 1999 to May 2001
Saint Paul, Minnesota
Participated in a team responsible for design, development, testing and implementation of software features for the VERITAS NetBackup Product.  These features supported the backup of Lotus Notes and general client enhancements.

Designed the Progress Viewer ActiveX Component.  This software component was designed to be reused in the NetBackup Client and NetBackup Job Tracker Applications.  Gathered specifications and created requirements for design using OOAD methodologies and UML.  Implemented classes to support server messaging, event handling and GUI presentation.  A prototype of the ActiveX Component was written in Visual C++.

Designed, Developed and Tested the NetBackup Client Find Dialog.  The Find Dialog presented objects available to be restored based in the users search criteria.  Design specification were written using OOAD methodologies and UML.  This feature required new interfaces to the server to support the search component and also development of the GUI.  This feature was developed using ATL.  Worked with Technical Publications to update the documentation. 

Designed and developed an enumeration component to identify Lotus Notes Objects for backup on the client.  This software component used the Lotus Notes API and the NetBackup Universal Browsing System to create a list of objects that is sent to the server for backup.  Worked with Test Engineering to design, develop, document and apply automated test scripts using PERL to test component.  This software was written in C to provide platform independence between Windows and Unix. 

Developed the client GUI features required to support Lotus Notes on the NetBackup Client.  The GUI allowed the user to select/set parameters prior to starting the backup.  The NetBackup Client was written as an MDI Application using the Microsoft Document/View Architecture.  UI Features tested using WinRunner.  These software components were written using MFC.
