Please check out my latest "Meet the Engineer" Q&A, Meet Tom Ball, Senior Staff Engineer at Sun Microsystems with blogger, Tom Ball, who works on Java language tools.

Tom goes way back: he joined the JDK team when the Java language was still called "Oak," created the first debugger API, and helped with the AWT for the 1.0 release.

He currently works on the Jackpot Project, a technology used for searching Java source code and safely and correctly transforming patterns in code, while writing minimal changes back to source. Jackpot
