About the Author
Anders Welén embraced the object-oriented techniques of the Java language early in life, and later evolved to Java Enterprise specifications. As a true believer and evangelist of Open Source, he naturally discovered the JBoss Application Server,
which led to years of providing expert consultation, training, and support for the JBoss and Java EE infrastructures.

Good Luck everybody!
