In this project we designed the new-generation CrunchTime Data Pump (CDP). CDP is a software program that pushes and pulls flat files to and from the CrunchTime Net-Chef clients to the Net-Chef server application for the purposes of loading and extracting sale statistics data from local clients. Such data is used by CrunchTime to provide business solutions to its clients. The new CDP program, which will replace the old-generation Delphi version, is a Java application implemented to run as a Windows Service. It enjoys the advantages of better maintainability and user control, logging and error handling. As additional feature, it has also been enhanced with the capabilities of auto-update and installation of newer software releases of the CDP system without requiring client input.
