Senior Project - TAA


Tactical Asset Allocation

Senior Project: 1997-1998
Chadwick Boggs, Christopher Golden, Bryan Grissom and Cameron Severson
Longmont, CO

The goal of this project was to re-engineer the commercially available software known as Step3, a financial asset allocation program running on MS DOS and MS Windows, to make it accessible through the World Wide Web. The core functionality of the existing system is accessed as server side C libraries. The project involved the design and implementation of a three-tier distributed client-server architecture and the new user interface.

A thin client consists of Java applets or applications providing the user interface. A server side middle tier involves much of the management of the current state of the system and communication between the clients and the computational engine and database. A base tier is composed of legacy C functions and the database. The system was written in Java using an object-oriented approach.
