Services

Java

Bridgewater can provide you with senior developers with over 15 years of experience in supplying Java solutions.

When appropriate, our developers can use our powerful BW*Wizard code generator to deliver systems much faster and with a higher quality than a fully hand-written system.

Angularjs/GWT Java/MySQL Systems
Since 2008, we have developed and deployed turnkey systems using an open source stack. Recently we have concentrated on Angularjs or GWT on the front end, with the back end using Java, MySQL, Tomcat, and Linux. This open-source stack has proved to be a reliable high-performance, low-cost solution.

Swing/SQL Server Systems
We supplied developers and a DBA for a major development project that built a Swing desktop application and used a SQL Server data-center on each coast of the USA, with heavy use of transactional replication.


Drupal / PHP

Bridgewater has been using Drupal for years to quickly deliver good-looking mobile-friendly sites where the content can be maintained by client admin staff.

We can integrate front-ends in Angular, Ionic, or native mobile apps with Drupal back-ends, and have the experience to deliver custom PHP modules for any needed functionality.

Mainframe

If you have an IBM mainframe, we can provide senior developers with over 20 years experience with Z/OS, Cobol, CICS, and DB2.

When appropriate, our developers can use our powerful BW*Wizard code generator to deliver systems much faster and with a higher quality than a fully hand-written system.

We have developed green-screen CICS/BMS database-maintenance systems for decades, accessing VSAM and/or DB2, and often using MQ to communicate with other systems.

We have developed Java front-ends (both Swing desktop apps and JSP/Struts browser apps) for existing or new CICS database-access programs, using the CICS Transaction Gateway or MQ to communicate between the Java and CICS.

 

CSP / VAGen / EGL

Bridgewater has senior developers with over 20 years experience with CSP, VisualAge Generator, and EGL. We have used every version of the language from when it was called DPPX/DMS and only ran on 8100's, through CSP and VAGen, right up to the latest incarnation: EGL, which is developed using Rational IDEs such as RBD.

When appropriate, our developers can use our powerful BW*Wizard code generator to deliver systems much faster and with a higher quality than a fully hand-written system.

We have supplied consulting and training to numerous clients all over the world, we also offer off-site development and maintenance services. Clients have included Avon Products, County of San Diego, Fred Meyer and IBM.

If you have CSP or VAGen at your site, we can:

  • Migrate your systems to EGL/RBD, train your staff to use EGL/RBD, and help you deploy and test the rebuilt code.
  • Or convert your systems from CSP or VAGen into pure COBOL/CICS/BMS systems with no black-box runtime routines.
