BBC - Name selection service

by Jamie Lentin on Apr 01, 2013
Bespoke Java/Spring web application

We engineered a Java web service from the ground up to allocate randomly selected, but guaranteed unique, names to users of the CBBC website.

  • Written using Java 6 and the Spring framework, interfacing to a MySQL database with JDBCTemplates.
  • Provided a fully documented REST API and PHP helper interface for the team to turn into a user-facing web application.

We also worked to ensure that the service would be as perform as well as possible under heavy load.
