Our main WebObjects/ObjC website often spins or times-out, and we need to understand why. We would like a WebObjects/Objective-C expert on Mac OS X to spend a week evaluating our website to produce several recommendations for immediate improvement and lowered latency. We will provide remote access to our website and to our WebObjects + Objective C software sources, via ssh, after a mutual non-disclosure agreement is signed. This is the first project of potentially several involving the gradual transformation of our WO/ObjC application into a WO/Java app with web-services APIs.
