We have a business app that enables our selected clients to validate that their customers' email addresses remain valid by connecting to the appropriate email servers and checking if the username is still valid, among other email validation processes. The app was built in java and functions ok right now, but there are features that we need to add and the original developer is completely absorbed in another project so we have to bring in someone new to manage and extend this app. I am looking to develop a good relationship with an experienced java developer for this and another app in the future.
Please outline your approach to taking over a mid sized project so that you can begin to enhance the capabilities. My thought, is that the app would get refactored first. This would ensure that you know every detail and can make improvements to the data structure and layout. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Just to be clear - we deplore spam and this nothing to do with it.
