Key notes from discussion with the Hiring Manager

The client websites are built on the Java platform. Websites are built
by extending the functionality provided by the Java. 

The Java platform acts as an interface between the Website and the
platform. This platform is based on Apache and uses a combination of
Perl and Java technology. Perl programs are slowly being moved to Java
based programs. The SDEs will work on this layer. 

The client website is the presentation layer and interfaces with the
Java platform through a Struts, JSF. The Web Devs will work on this
layer and integrate with the Java platform for building the necessary
