Objectivation is a one-man company. This implies that all work is done by one single person: Eelco den Heijer.
Eelco's vast technical ICT knowledge is the core asset of Objectivation.
Eelco at work

The main areas of expertise are:


Software development;; Java has become the de facto programming platform for server-side software development. Development areas include the entire J2EE stack; servlets, Java Server Pages (JSP), Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB), Java Messaging Service (JMS), JNDI, JDBC, and also non-Sun standards like Struts, Hibernate and Spring.
Eelco has no less than five Sun Java certifications, including Sun Certified Java Programmer (SCJP), Sun Certified Java Developer (SCJD), Sun Certified Web Component Developer (SCWCD), Sun Certified Business Component Developer (SCBCD), and Sun Certified Enterprise Architect (SCEA). Also, Eelco holds an IBM Certified Websphere Developer certificate.

Mentoring;, junior programmers often need on-site support from an experienced Java programmer. Mentoring junior Java programmers is one of the services of Objectivation.
Training.; If needed, a Java training can be given. Since programming is best learnt by doing, a lot of hands-on will be given.

Internet in general

Design, architecture, realisation, troubleshooting, auditing;. The Internet has grown in an unprecendented way in the last decade. Individuals and corporations have embraced the medium on a massive scale. Objectivation has a lot of experience with building web sites. Experience varies from building simple web sites with static content, building slightly more complex sites with data in XML that has to tranformed into HTML, WML and PDF using XSL-T and XSL-FO stylesheets, all the way to participating in building huge high-volume web sites built using multi-tier J2EE architectures, databases, LDAP, load balancing, fail-over, firewalls etc.
Objectivation can participate in all phases of a technical Internet realisation project, from intial architectual setup, to the realisation of the actual site, until troubleshooting problems in the Live environment.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence has been very popular and hyped around the eighties and the the beginning of the nineties, but has somewhat suffered from being overhyped. Nevertheless, AI holds many very interesting technologies that can benefit your business, even today. To name a few technologies: Data mining, to find hidden knowledge in your data warehouses; Knowledge-based technologies - extracting business rules from data and offering them as a business software component

XML and the Semantic Web

Design, Consultancy;. After a few years of being slightly overhyped, XML ha become a household technology. Nevertheless, there are several XML implementations and dialects that cause confusion. For example; should you use a DTD or should you go for XML Schema? And why? Should you use any of the two at all? And what about XSL-T; should you use XSL-T/XSL-FO merely for translating XML to HTML and PDF (or any other format) or should it also contain business logic?
The latter may sound strange to some, but avoiding to incorporate business logic in XSL stylesheets is sometimes unavoidable. If you are in need of advice or needs a pair of hands in an XML project, please contact Objectivation.
Semantic Web. Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web (no, it wasn't Al Gore) has an ambitious vision on the future of the Web. Berners-Lee envisions a web where computers exchange data, information and knowledge in a standard way. In order to realise these plans, a number of 3 letter technologies have been designed and specified. The most important is probably RDF; furthermore there are OWL, OIL, RDF-Schema and many more.
The Semantic Web is a relatively young field of research; many specifications are not yet finished and change often. If you are interested in the Semantic Web, and want to know what the Semantic Web can do for you business, don't hesitate to contact Objectivation.
