New project lead for GlassFish
During much of his career here at Sun, I've had the pleasure of working with Jerome on several projects. He is a Sun veteran with more than 9 years in Java Software. Jerome started in 1996 to work on the JavaBeans team then moved on to create the Java Plug-in. After a few more years in Java SE, he moved to Java EE land, where he helped with the verifier for J2EE 1.3. He then architectured the AVK before moving into deployment area and finally web services for J2EE 1.4. During Java EE 5 development, he participated in the Ease of Development designs and continued leading the web services implementation in Glassfish while lobbying for the Mac OS X support.
You may have seen his posts on the forums and the GlassFish aliases or seen him speak at several JavaOne conferences or read one of his blogs. I'm excited to be working closely with Jerome again.
Thanks to Abhijit Kumar for his work as project lead while getting GlassFish over to open source and good luck in the field of technical managment.
