-                    I've been involved with servlet and JSP technology since
-                    around
-                    1998. It started out that I needed a way to build some web
-                    applications for several projects, and liked Java a lot
-                    better
-                    than the alternatives. I also liked the price tag of open
-                    source
-                    software, and started using Apache JServ -- later, getting
-                    involved in the project (like many people, I was whining
-                    about
-                    the twelve months it took to get from version 0.9 to
-                    version
-                    1.0, and my son said &quot;Dad, you know Java -- go help them
-                    finish
-                    it!&quot; -- so I did :-).</p>
-
-                <p>
-                    For quite a while, I was participating a lot the
-                    JSP-INTEREST and
-                    SERVLET-INTEREST
-                    <a class="externalLink" href="http://archives.java.sun.com">mailing lists</a>
-                    ,
-                    especially the topic of good architectures for web
-                    applications.
-                    I was disgusted with the hash that many beginners created
-                    when
-                    they used (or abused) scriptlets in JSP pages, and built
-                    (for my
-                    former employer) a pretty comprehensive framework that
-                    could
-                    considered (&quot;Struts 0.01 without the custom tags&quot;). It was
-                    proprietary code, but I was able to describe the concepts,
-                    and
-                    there started to a feeling the lists that this &quot;Model 2&quot;
-                    thing
-                    was pretty cool -- but there were no good examples to look
-                    at,
-                    so it was mostly hand waving types of discussions.
-                </p>
-
-                <p>
-                    Over the same time period, I got involved as an individual
-                    contributor in the

-                    , and joined the expert group that defined
-                    the servlet 2.2 and JSP 1.1 specs. Sun was impressed
-                    enough to
-                    offer me a job as the technical lead the team within Sun
-                    (currently five other individuals) that works

-                    position of getting paid to work open source software :-).
-                    And,
-                    participate the expert groups for Servlet 2.3 and JSP 1.2.
-                    And,
-                    speak at various conferences, including ApacheCon and
-                    JavaOne.
-                    And, talk to groups within Sun about using Struts and
-                    JSP/servlet technology. And ... (there's some really
-                    interesting
-                    things being considered for the future).

-                    The original design of what came to Struts has been in my
-                    head
-                    for a long time, since those interesting mailing list
-                    discussions, but the first version of the actual code was
-                    written my laptop a Memorial Day weekend vacation trip
-                    (end of
-                    May, 2000) to the Oregon coast -- in between watching the
-                    surf
-                    and having the house shaken by a windstorm at night. Since
-                    then,
-                    it has gathered attention and popularity as we approach
-                    our
-                    first official release, and it delights me to see my
-                    &quot;baby&quot; grow
-                    up so well :-). Of course, it is no longer just me --
-                    there have
-                    been incredible numbers of good ideas from all over, and a
-                    peek
-                    at the TODO list for 1.1 says that even more good stuff is
-                    coming in the future.

-                    Personally, I live in Portland, Oregon (even though my

-                    Sun is mostly in Cupertino, CA -- staying here was part of
-                    the

-                    I figured out I was getting pretty old when I realized

-                    software development :-). I've got a son who is a

-                    software developer (primarily in PHP so far, but I'm going

-                    I'm currently a student of computer science at Drexel

-                    in Philadelphia, PA. I've been working at HP Middleware,

-                    Java and
-                    recently J2EE technologies. I'm a full time worker from
-                    September until April and a student and part time worker
-                    from

-
-                <p>
-                    In the late 1990s, I was working with a local PBS station
-                    to
-                    improve their web presence. Like most stations, WXXI had
-                    an
-                    annual fundraising auction. Each year, we would do a
-                    little more
-                    for the auction. At first, we posted a few static pages
-                    about
-                    the &quot;big ticket&quot; items. The next year, we accepted
-                    &quot;pre-bids&quot;
-                    on the more expensive items, using a JavaScript
-                    application.
-                </p>
-
-                <p>
-                    Then, late in 1999, the CEO decided we should do a lot
-                    more with the auction
-                    on the website. The next big step would be to accept bids
-                    for
-                    all items online. A colleague recommended FileMaker Pro,
-                    and we
-                    went to work automating the bid-taking process. For
-                    &quot;Spring MarketPlace 2000&quot;, we entered the telephone bids
-                    into
-                    computers in the studio, and Internet users could enter
-                    their
-                    own bids directly.
-                </p>
-
-                <p>
-                    The system worked, but we ran into some walls that were
-                    difficult to work around. We also wanted to expand the
-                    system to do scheduling and inventory as well as bid
-                    taking.
-                    So, I started looking for a new platform. I came close to
-                    selecting PHP, but there were some cool new Java products,

-                    and

-                    At the time, web application frameworks for Java were a
-                    new
-                    idea, and only a couple were available.
-                    I stumbled upon Struts at Jakarta, and started posting
-                    questions to the list. At first, the list traffic was so
-                    low,
-                    I wasn't sure if the group was still active. But, answers
-                    came, and so I kept on posting.

-                    To help teach myself the framework, I started a &quot;walking
-                    tour&quot; of the infamous MailReader application. I posted the
-                    tour as I wrote it, and people kindly corrected my
-                    understanding of how things worked as I went.

-                    In December 2000, Craig was asking for volunteers to help

-                    ready
-                    to ship using the Struts 1.0 beta. We took over 50,000
-                    bids on
-                    5,000 items with nary a hitch. We added an inventory
-                    module
-                    for 2002, and the station continued to use the original

-                    books include JUnit in Action, Struts in Action, and
-                    Professional JSP Site Design. I've consulted with Struts

-                    As a dreamer / researcher I have thought a lot about a
-                    framework
-                    like Struts. But, as a lazy developer I have first checked
-                    what
-                    already exists, and I have found Struts. Struts goals
-                    fulfilled
-                    nearly all I needed for my (now old) portal project,
-                    except the
-                    capability to reuse and assemble easily pieces of pages or
-                    components. So, I have proposed the Components framework.
-                    This
-                    framework can seen as a superset of the Templates tag
-                    library
-                    contributed by David Geary, and contains lot of
-                    interesting
-                    features.

-                    department of
-                    a worldwide company developing Internet banking solutions.
-                    I am now a researcher at a university, and work European
-                    research projects. My main research interest is WWW,
-                    Distributed
-                    Systems and Object Oriented Design. When developing code,
-                    I
-                    always try to first propose reusable pieces of code.

-                    Early in the year 2000, I was asked, by my employer at
-                    that time,
-                    to investigate the best way to develop a new web-based
-                    application
-                    for the administration and management of an existing
-                    product.
-                    After exploring a number of technologies, I settled on
-                    Java, along
-                    with servlets and JSP, as the way to go. Then I started
-                    looking
-                    for methodologies and &quot;best practices&quot;, since others must
-                    surely
-                    have been down that path before me.
-                </p>
-
-                <p>
-                    In addition to rummaging around on the web, I subscribed
-                    to the
-                    SERVLET-INTEREST and JSP-INTEREST mailing lists, along
-                    with
-                    several others, and monitored the discussions for a while.
-                    It was
-                    clear that others were seeking the same answers as I was,
-                    and it
-                    was also clear that many people were building their
-                    applications
-                    in truly horrible ways.
-                </p>
-                <p>
-                    At some point -- I don't recall when, exactly -- the
-                    concept of
-                    &quot;Model 1&quot; versus &quot;Model 2&quot; applications came up, and there
-                    was a
-                    great deal of discussion around that. Model 2 seemed very
-                    much
-                    like A Good Thing to me, and I paid it close attention.

-
-                <p>
-                    Then, in May of 2000, I saw a message from Craig
-                    McClanahan
-                    about a new framework called Struts that was designed to
-                    ease
-                    the process of building Model 2 applications, and provide
-                    solutions for some of the important issues at the same
-                    time. I
-                    hopped on over to the website and took a look around.
-                    This was
-                    exactly what I had been looking for.
-                </p>
-
-                <p>
-                    My first postings to the Struts mailing list were, of
-                    course,
-                    questions to help me understand how to do things and why
-                    Struts
-                    is the way it is. Over time, I became more involved in
-                    both the
-                    user and developer communities, started submitting bug
-                    reports,
-                    patches and change requests, and eventually became a
-                    committer.
-                    Not long after that, I volunteered to take on the release
-                    process,
-                    and became the release manager for Struts 1.0.1 and
-                    beyond. Little
-                    did I know what I was letting myself in for!

-                    Working with, and on, Struts has provided me with an

-                    As I worked web based projects I started looking for
-                    something
-                    that would really help save time during development. I ran
-                    across Struts in the Summer of 2000 and decided it was a
-                    good
-                    solution for web development. As I used Struts it really
-                    helped
-                    to remove a lot of the repetitive work, but validation
-                    still
-                    seemed very repetitive. I had an idea to create validation
-                    rules
-                    in an xml file and have them easily integrated with
-                    Struts. It
-                    started out simple and continued to develop over time. The
-                    validation project was eventually incorporated into Struts
-                    and
-                    the core was moved to Jakarta Commons. I'm happy to see
-                    Struts
-                    continue to grow and develop.</p>

-                    project was a publishing system using Message Driven EJBs
-                    in
-                    JBoss and Struts was used to display the status of each

-                    I have gone from Unix -to- Windows -to- Unix based
-                    development
-                    about ever 6 years now. When moving to Windows I was
-                    amazed at
-                    how primitive the OS was compared to Unix. While
-                    developing for
-                    Win32 I had the pleasure of discovering Delphi and
-                    developed
-                    many GUI/databases, telephony, Internet enabled
-                    applications. I
-                    remain impressed with its design. Delphi, always enabled
-                    development of a simple elegant solution, much like the
-                    language
-                    itself. I was convinced after 10 years of development with
-                    C/C++
-                    that it was a kinder gentler language.

-
-                <p>
-                    Then in July 2000 I decided to move into Java, and Web
-                    development. This is after using the Internet since 1985
-                    and
-                    occasionally teaching classes about it. I was hired as a
-                    consultant to take over a JSP based application. I
-                    realized it
-                    had been written with the equivalent of &quot;goto's&quot;(Model 1)
-                    and
-                    had to be redesigned. I searched for a better way to
-                    design the
-                    code and by late August I had found Struts. It is also a
-                    simple
-                    elegant solution.

-                    To date I have mainly served to pitch in where needed. I
-                    continue to amazed at the Struts committers' generous
-                    contributions of time, insight, and good will. I feel
-                    fortunate
-                    to part of the Apache Struts group.

-                    I, like many others, discovered Struts when contemplating

-                    joined the mailing lists. After playing with it for

-                    thank you enough for all the leadership and guidance you
-                    have
-                    given me (and others). I truly believe that without your

-                    I call myself an &quot;Open Source Evangelist&quot; for a reason. I
-                    use
-                    the word &quot;Evangelist&quot; because that's what I feel I am
-                    doing.
-                    Just as Martin Luther was considered a rebel in his day, I
-                    too
-                    hope to make a change. I hope to change the way Software
-                    is
-                    developed in our world and how the lack of collaboration
-                    for
-                    the sake of &quot;intellectual property&quot; is inhibiting the
-                    growth of
-                    our economy. I believe businesses have a right to make a
-                    profit.
-                    I believe businesshave a right to make a profit on their
-                    &quot;intellectual property&quot;, but for heaven's sake, some
-                    wheels
-                    don't needto be reinvented 50,000 times. Where I draw the
-                    line
-                    is when they leverage existing market share to strong-arm
-                    the
-                    competition literally out of business. Based on what I
-                    just
-                    wrote and depending on what you've been exposed to in your
-                    career, you might be thinking of one company right now.
-                    You are
-                    probably right in your assumption, but believe me, there
-                    are
-                    many companies that practice the same, or worsetechniques.
-                    To
-                    them, it's not about playing on a level playing field,
-                    it's
-                    about getting to the game early,buying 80% of the seats,
-                    and
-                    paying off the officials so there is little chance for any
-                    real
-                    competition. Ofcourse, for some companies, it doesn't hurt
-                    if
-                    you own the stadium and keep the other players locked out.
-                    &quot;Well, they were invited to compete, but they didn't show
-                    up.
-                    &quot;....sound familiar?

-                    Compared to what I want to do in life, Struts is just a

-                    the pond. However, that said, I am very happy and excited

-                    I discovered Struts somewhat by accident. In 2001 I began
-                    writing a book for SAMS on JSP web development (MySQL and
-                    JSP
-                    Web Development), and as part of it, I decided to write a
-                    chapter on Struts in the advanced section. In the process
-                    of
-                    learning enough about Struts to write about it, I realized
-                    that
-                    it could simplify some of the projects that I was working
-                    on for
-                    clients.

-
-                <p>
-                    After a half a year of working with Struts, I was asked by
-                    SAMS
-                    to write another book, this time concentrating on Struts
-                    specifically. That book, co-authored with a former
-                    co-worker n
-                    amed Kevin Bedell, became Struts Kick Start.
-                </p>
-
-                <p>
-                    In the process of writing that book, I began to realize
-                    that
-                    there were things I could do to contribute to Struts
-                    beyond
-                    writing about it. One thing in particular was to clean up
-                    and
-                    add some functionality to the Commons Validator project,
-                    which
-                    eventually led to me release-managing (with a lot of
-                    help!) the
-                    Commons Validator 1.0 release.

-                    More generally, I've been a software developer for over 22
-                    years, starting with work as a Research Specialist at the
-                    MIT AI
-                    Lab. I spent nearly a decade working in LISP, before
-                    moving on
-                    to C/Unix, a stint managing the Website for the Christian
-                    Science Monitor, and finally Java based e-Commerce
-                    development,
-                    which has kept me busy for the last five years.

-                    My first experiences with Java made me wince. The language
-                    was young-ish still and growing by leaps and bounds all
-                    the time.
-                    To me, it seemed unintelligent to invest any significant
-                    intellectual resources in learning it because I perceived
-                    it as
-                    such a &quot;moving target&quot;. Of course, that has
-                    changed.
-                </p>
-
-                <p>
-                    I'd been looking for a way to really do heavy-duty
-                    processing of
-                    web requests that was higher-level than CGI. In
-                    particular, I
-                    was on a quest to find somethiong that did not involve
-                    using
-                    Microsoft (tm) technologies. A friend of mine started
-                    chatting up the idea of Java servlets and JSP pages. I
-                    didn't
-                    really like the idea of using Java because of my
-                    previously
-                    formed opinion, but, having a great deal of respect for my
-                    friend's opinion, I set out on an exursion to delve into
-                    the
-                    world of Java-driven dynamic web page generation.
-                </p>
-
-                <p>
-                    The language (and myself) had matured considerably by this
-                    time,
-                    and I found my previous inhibitions were no longer well
-                    founded.
-                    However, as much as I liked the technology, I was
-                    dissatisfied.
-                    There just had to be a better way! I loved the concept of
-                    having a controller servlet, but, lacking experience in
-                    building
-                    externally-configurable Java &quot;thingies&quot;, I was
-                    hard-coding a lot, and, after a point, that started to
-                    really
-                    rub me wrong. At this point, I started buying books and
-                    really
-                    &quot;studying&quot; the technology more seriously.

-
-                <p>
-                    I honestly don't recall where I stumbled onto Struts, but
-                    I do
-                    recall having toyed with a number of different frameworks
-                    - none
-                    of which I really recall now. I quickly fell in love with
-                    Struts -- partially because it was an Apache project, and
-                    partially because it was evident to me that the project
-                    had a
-                    really great user-base.
-                </p>
-
-                <p>
-                    As time rocked along, I found myself becoming more deeply
-                    involved in the project. I studied the source and learned
-                    a
-                    great deal about architecting configurable Java
-                    &quot;thingies&quot;, and learned a fantastic amount about
-                    actually using the framework.
-                </p>
-
-                <p>
-                    In time, I got comfortable enough with how Struts was
-                    structured
-                    that I began submitting patches - mostly documentation,
-                    which
-                    Ted Husted &quot;massaged&quot; and applied. I enjoyed the
-                    feeling of gratification I got from helping to make Struts
-                    better, even if minorly.
-                </p>
-
-                <p>
-                    My last patch submitted as a non-committer was for
-                    ActionServlet.
-                    This was back when Struts 1.1 was working toward GA
-                    release. It
-                    was the first patch I hadn't had applied within a few days
-                    of
-                    submission and I grew impatient. Modules did not work
-                    properly
-                    without it and they did with it! &quot;How can they not
-                    apply
-                    that patch when it's so critical to Struts?&quot; I
-                    thought to
-                    myself.
-                </p>
-
-                <p>
-                    Well, to keep this book from becoming a novel, I started a
-                    campaign to have the patch applied which resulted in
-                    my gaining committer status and applying the patch myself!
-                    I should note that Steve Ditlinger and myself collaborated
-                    on the
-                    patch. I submitted a version, he made some suggestions and
-                    submitted an altered patch, and then we, collectively,
-                    decided
-                    to make a couple of other modifications, which I applied
-                    just
-                    before committing the patch.

-                    I've worked as a developer since 1988 using various

-                    In the late nineties I kept meaning to learn java but
-                    never found the time
-                    until 2000. I bought a couple of books (Java in 30 Days
-                    and a Certification
-                    Study Guide), passed the Sun certification exam and got my

-                    Early in 2001 I was investigating writing the first web
-                    app for the company
-                    I was working for and came across Struts - just before the
-                    1.0 beta was
-                    released. After a while I came off the user list because
-                    of the volume of
-                    traffic and just monitored the developers list. Late in
-                    2003 I migrated to

-                <p>
-                    I started working with Java early in 2000. We designed and
-                    implemented a
-                    servlet-based application that to this day gives me and a
-                    fellow designer
-                    the urge to do a total rewrite. On my next assignment,
-                    somebody
-                    introduced me to a series of patterns useful for web
-                    applications. We
-                    built a framework using these patterns and it worked out
-                    well for us.
-                </p>
-                <p>
-                    When I tried to bring this framework into the next
-                    project, somebody
-                    suggested using Struts instead. The two frameworks
-                    resembled each other
-                    so closely that we had no trouble at all switching. One of
-                    the things
-                    missing in Struts was an easy way to do redirects with
-                    parameters, so we
-                    wrote our own class for that. The same guy who suggested
-                    Struts
-                    suggested I contribute it to Struts. A few months after
-                    that, I joined
-                    the mailing lists and sought how to contribute.
-                </p>
-                <p>
-                    I found myself enjoying answering questions on the user
-                    list. After some
-                    time, I was participating on the dev list as well. Soon I
-                    was able to
-                    contribute a few patches and even came up with my own
-                    Struts extension.
-                    In February of 2005, I accepted an invitation to be a
-                    committer, and
-                    in July 2005, accepted an invitation to join the PMC.

-
-                <p>In late 2001, I was asked to put information from a
-                    database on
-                    the web, including a few forms to allow updates. By that
-                    time I had
-                    been working with Java for a couple of years in class
-                    projects, but
-                    &quot;Servlet&quot; was still a foreign word. With no real deadline
-                    and
-                    complete freedom to pick anything I wanted, I spent hours
-                    online
-                    searching and participating in different forums and lists.
-                    And any
-                    time I asked for advice using 'Java' and 'HTML forms' in
-                    the same
-                    sentence, I got a resounding chorus of &quot;Struts!&quot; in
-                    reply.</p>
-
-                <p>That first webapp went through quite a few iterations as I
-                    tried
-                    and discarded various things. But I kept coming back to
-                    Struts, and
-                    eventually things fell into place-- thanks mostly to the
-                    helpful
-                    community on the struts-user list. As I gained more
-                    experience,
-                    asking questions on the user list naturally transformed
-                    into
-                    answering them, which I've been doing ever since. I
-                    accepted an
-                    invitation to become a Struts Committer in June, 2005, and
-                    was invited to join the PMC in December, 2005.</p>

-
-                <p>I landed an internship in college working with the big blue
-                    iron where
-                    I dappled in the craft of VSE COBOL and JCL. Through the
-                    90's, I worked my
-                    way into several client-server technologies (Visual Basic,
-                    PowerBuilder and Delphi)
-                    and finally thought that I had learned the last
-                    programming language I
-                    would ever need to know, Fort&#xe9; Transactional Object
-                    Oriented language (TOOL).</p>
-
-                <p>I rode the Fort&#xe9; wave for several years and suddenly
-                    found myself
-                    looking for work and feeling like a real &quot;tool&quot;. An empty,
-                    dust free
-                    shelf was just the right size for the proprietary
-                    distributed object
-                    solution once called Fort&#xe9;.</p>
-
-                <p>In 2002, is when I found Java. While working a VB
-                    assignment,
-                    I decided the only hope I had of getting a competitive
-                    edge was to
-                    become a Sun Certified Java Programmer. With that card, I
-                    found an
-                    opportunity to become a Struts developer and began lurking
-                    about the
-                    Struts mailing lists in 2003.</p>
-
-                <p>In late 2004, I started hearing a buzz about a new Struts
-                    subproject
-                    and became very interested in the ideas. I also began
-                    acquiring a stack
-                    of JSF books matching my Struts collection. My experience
-                    with Struts,
-                    Tiles and something that Colorado Department of State
-                    calls Rustts, gave
-                    me the idea that has become known as the Shale &quot;Clay&quot;
-                    plug-in. I was
-                    invited to become a Struts Committer in July 2005.</p>

-
-                <p>During a job interview in 2002 I was asked if I had any
-                    experience with
-                    Struts. I told the interviewer that I had never heard of
-                    it. That night
-                    when I got home I set out to figure out what Struts was
-                    all about. It
-                    turns out I already knew it (sort of.) I had been spending
-                    a lot of time
-                    researching design patterns and I was working with my own
-                    custom framework
-                    that combined several patterns that I thought worked well
-                    together.</p>
-
-                <p>I then realized that I wasn't the only one trying to
-                    improve the way in
-                    which complex web applications were being designed. Of
-                    course, as with all
-                    open source projects, the result of several minds working
-                    together is superior
-                    to that of a single mind working alone. I quickly
-                    abandoned my custom
-                    framework in favor of Struts. A few years later I was the
-                    one interviewing
-                    people asking them if they knew Struts!</p>
-
-                <p>Struts was also the beginning of my serious interest in
-                    open source. Like
-                    many other committers I started out as a user, then became
-                    a participant on
-                    the mailing lists, then started reporting bugs, then
-                    started patching bugs and
-                    finally started proposing and supplying new features. The
-                    Struts community
-                    was an invaluable resource for me, especially when it came
-                    to getting advice on
-                    tricky design issues.</p>
-
-                <p>In October 2005 I was invited to become a Struts Committer.
-                    I have also been
-                    involved in a few other open source projects including
-                    commons-lang and
-                    commons-chain. I am also a PMC member of the MyFaces
-                    project where I spend
-                    most of my free time these days. My current interest in
-                    Struts lies with the
-                    Shale subproject.</p>

-
-                <p>In early 2000 I was working on a client-server application
-                    that
-                    was written in Visual Basic and C++. The decision was made
-                    to
-                    rebuild the application as a web-based app using Java and
-                    JSP. We
-                    bought into the MVC architecture and implemented it using
-                    Sun's
-                    Blueprints with a JSP front controller. Then one of our
-                    architects
-                    came back from JavaOne raving about Struts. From that
-                    point on
-                    there was no turning back for me.</p>
-
-                <p>Over the years my involvement has come in spurts. If I was
-                    working on a web-based project it was a given that this
-                    project
-                    would involve Struts. Finally, our organization was bitten
-                    by the
-                    SOA bug so it was &quot;webapp no more&quot; for a while. But I
-                    never
-                    bothered to unsubscribe from the Struts lists and always
-                    kept one
-                    ear tuned in to the chatter in my inbox.</p>
-
-                <p>Finally I decided to plant myself back in the web tier with
-                    or
-                    without my employer's support and changed jobs. Very soon
-                    afterwards, in October 2005, I was invited to become a
-                    Struts
-                    committer. This comes at a time when Tiles, my favorite
-                    part of
-                    Struts, is seeing a lot of activity. I hope to play a
-                    large part
-                    in digging the Standalone version out of the sandbox. I am
-                    also
-                    very interested in JSF, Shale, content management systems,
-                    and
-                    portals.</p>
-
-                <p>The truth is I still haven't decided what I want to be when
-                    I
-                    grow up. In addition to my software pursuits I am also a

-                    me know!

-
-                <p>I've been lurking on the fringes of the Struts project for
-                    years, on and off, but it wasn't until early 2005 that I
-                    became an active participant. I founded
-                    <a class="externalLink" href="http://www.zotechsoftware.com/">Zotech
-                        Software</a>
-                    and selected Struts as the framework on which we would
-                    build
-                    our first product. I thought long and hard about how to
-                    give
-                    back to the Open Source community from whose work we would
-                    derive so much value, and decided that one important
-                    contribution I could make would be to answer questions on
-                    the Struts user list, among others. Over time, I found
-                    myself
-                    wanting to add bits and pieces to Struts itself, and began
-                    submitting patches.
-                </p>
-
-                <p>In October 2005 I was invited to become a committer. My
-                    main interests lie with the core Struts framework and
-                    supporting
-                    sub-projects, though I'm keeping an eye on Ti and some of
-                    the
-                    other experimental work that's going on.</p>

-
-        <p>In 2001 I joined a team that had been tasked with building a front
-        end to a lottery system using Java technology. The system had to have
-        Web interface (HTML), cellular phone interface (WML and later SMS)
-        as well as audio interface for regular telephone
-        (VoiceXML). Someone suggested to use Struts. I did not know about Struts
-        at that time, but the framework quickly proved to be superior to simple
-        JSP-based Model1 approach. The team effort resulted in a multi-layer
-        application that is still competitive and maintainable today.</p>
-
-        <p>Struts proved its value, but some common practices seemed
-        inconvenient or plain wrong to me. I started to read what other people
-        say. I found great value in Ted Husted's tips, as well as in the book
-        by Chuck Cavaness. After a while I devised some practices of my own
-        (or just
-        <a class="externalLink" href="http://www.theserverside.com/tt/articles/article.tss?l=RedirectAfterPost">rediscovered</a>
-        something that others has been doing for long time)
-        and since then I have been trying to improve Struts in different
-        ways.</p>
-
-        <p>I started to think about page flows and Back button support back in
-        2002, this resulted in a simple but robust wizard engine. I also
-        wanted to make development with Struts more object-oriented. I found
-        DispatchAction useful in this regards but with quirks of its own. So I
-        created my own dispatch action that allowed me to process both input
-        and render phases of a web resource. Promoting this approach is a
-        job of its own.</p>
-
-        <p>My most recent area of interest is web components and Ajax.
-        Creating independent components using Ajax is actually simpler than
-        using less fancy patterns like redirect-after-post. In attempt to
-        combine Ajax and non-Ajax components into one package I came up with
-        idea of <a class="externalLink" href="http://www.jspcontrols.net/">dual-mode components</a>
-        that work either with or without Javascript.</p>
-
-        <p>Struts has been good to me. I want Struts to keep being improved and to
-        remain the Java web framework of choice.</p>

-                <p>My first encounter with Struts was at the university in June
-                    2003, when my teacher gave me an assignment in which I had
-                    to convert a sample web application using Struts and Tiles.
-                    After that the same teacher gave me my thesis assignment, in
-                    which I had to develop the missing part of a web application
-                    rapid prototyping tool based on the same technologies.</p>

-                <p>After my graduation, I worked for a year at the same
-                    university and my job was to enhance that tool to support
-                    multi-user and multi-device applications, with different
-                    modelling techniques, so my experience with Struts and
-                    Tiles grew more and more.</p>
-
-                 <p>My job at the university finished and I went into the &quot;real
-                    world&quot;, but I kept my subscription in both users and developers
-                    Struts mailing lists. One day I noticed that Greg Reddin was
-                    working on a stand-alone version of Tiles, so I submitted some
-                    patches for bugs and enhancements in Tiles. After a while, in
-                    June 2006, I've been invited by Greg Reddin himself to become a
-                    committer: you can't imagine my joy!</p>
-
-                 <p>I am currently working on the integration between Struts 1
-                    and Tiles 2. My other Java EE interests are in the view
-                    layer (I am a developer and administrator of
-                    <a class="externalLink" href="http://mutidimensions.sourceforge.net/">Dimensions</a>)
-                    and in synchronization between client's browser and application
-                    server: the latter led me to create

-                 <p>When I graduated from school in 1999 I headed to Flower Mound,
-                    Texas (a Dallas Suberb) where my wife Teresa had grown up.
-                    I was fortunate to find my first web development contract
-                    and began my career on a portal development team providing
-                    user interface implementation support.</p>
-                 <p> Since that first job, I have worked for a few small
-                    consulting companies providing J2EE design and development
-                    consulting to mid sized and Fortune 500 clients. Many of the
-                    projects I've been involved in over the yeras have leveraged
-                    struts and tiles.  I also have used other web frameworks
-                    such as JSF and Tapestry.</p>
-                 <p> In the summer of 2006 I left full time employment in order to
-                    begin <a class="externalLink" href="http://www.threepillarsoftware.com">
-                    Three Pillar Software, Inc</a>. This move was driven by my
-                    desire to spend more time doing the things I love (developing
-                    open source software, agile coaching, spending time with my
-                    wife and kids, etc. . .) and less time in corporate meetings
-                    and sales calls.  My first project as an independent consultant
-                    proved to provide just that, as I've had time to contribute
-                    to the development of both Struts2 and Tiles2. I was invited
-                    to become a struts committer in October of 2006.</p>
-                 <p>I am also a committer for <a class="externalLink" href="http://portals.apache.org/pluto">
-                    Apache Pluto</a>, a member of the JSR-286 Expert Group, an author of

-                    such as ApacheCon US 2005, Agile2006, and SD Best Practices 2006.
-                    In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife Teresa and
