       I'm excited about helping Struts evolve and am continually amazed by the 
       framework and the community surrounding it.
  +    <h3><a name="jturner">James Turner -- Committer</a></h3>
  +    <p>
  +    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>
  +    <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 named 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.</p>
  +    <p>
  +    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
  +    Web Site for the Christian Science Monitor, and finally Java based
  +    e-Commerce development, which has kept me busy for the last five years.</p>
  +    <p>
  +    In addition to the two books mentioned above, I also write for a number of
  +    publications, including WIRED and the aforementioned Christian Science 
  +    Monitor.  You can get a look at my portfolio
