Darn. Must remember to read all emails before replying ;-)

I currently work for Redhat as Director of Standards and Development  
Manager for the TS and ESB products. Prior to Redhat (JBoss) I was  
Chief Architect for Arjuna Technologies, a spin-off from HP, that  
specialised in distributed transaction and reliable messaging  
technologies in CORBA, J2EE and Web Services. I've been involved in  
Web Services standards and development since 1999/2000. Currently I'm  
on the W3C WS-A, WS-Policy and WS-Choreo committees, and more OASIS  
committees than I can remember!

At Arjuna I was one of the primary authors of the OASIS WS-CAF  
specifications (with IONA and Oracle) and am one of the primary  
authors of the WS-TX specifications (WS-C, WS-AT and WS-BA) from  
Arjuna, IBM, MSFT, IONA, BEA. I also dabbled in product development,  
with the Arjuna Transaction Service (which is now in open source)  
which has support for CORBA, J2EE and Web Services transactions  
within it. While working on some of this stuff I implemented the 2004  
WS-Addr specification, WS-TX 1.0 and WS-CAF. Also taking part in many  
interoperability workshops.

I was a Distinguished Engineer at Hewlett-Packard prior to Arjuna,  
where I ran the transaction group for HP. We implemented the worlds  
first Web Services transaction product (HP-WST) back in 2001 and did  
interoperability work with Microsoft. I also helped develop HP's SOAP  
stack, as well as continue the evolution of the Hewlett-Packard  
Transaction Service (aka Arjuna Transaction Service). Prior to all  
this, I had another start up (Arjuna Solutions) where I developed  
CORBA and J2EE transaction products.

I've presented at many conferences/workshops, written several books,  
dozens of papers and articles on subjects as diverse as quantum  
mechanics and fault tolerant distributed systems.

That's about it in a nutshell, except to say that I'll be glad to help,
