My Account 2.0

Web Services Testing Tool

The e-Biz membership web features have been going through a series of iterations from the time they were first developed in 2000. The first iteration consisted of JSP pages that were designed by Newland and coded by Campana. These were very difficult to edit, and AAA East Central nicknamed our edits as “chocolate”, to highlight the improvement over Campana’s “vanilla” pages.

Then in 2010 we designed, developed and launched a series of web applications using a Model View Controller architecture that separated the page display and back-end function into different layers. This allowed far more flexibility, but still required Newland to make any changes, even to basic text on the various pages.

Recently some Clubs have expressed an interest in managing page content themselves, or even integrating their own pages which would fetch data from sources other than Axis. We’ve achieved this in two ways. First by building the front end in Drupal and giving administration rights to the Clubs.

Second, we’ve gone one step further and we can make all the functions available as Web services using JSON. This will allow those Clubs, which have developers available, to build their own web pages to supplement or replace the Newland-developed My Account pages.

In this project we've

  • adopted the Spring framework
  • designed and built the back-end code as a series of re-usable modules
  • separated the software layers
  • made a robust back-end design that can be adapted to different APIs
  • made a robust payment module to work with Axis, PCA or any other payment gateways
  • enhanced the architecture so that any part of the My Account web applications may be accessed as a web service

What our clients say

Read our clients feedback we've received over the years.

“I want to personally “Thank” all of you for the exceptional job you have done with the My Account 2.0 project. In the 12 years of working for AAA, I believe, this is the single largest project that The Newland Group has implemented. As you consistently do, this project launched without a hitch. In fact, so little disruption occurred that the launch of My Account 2.0 went practically unnoticed by Employees and Users alike. Again, “Thank You” for the amazing services and dedication you and your team provide for the AAA & CAA Clubs.”
