Richard Monson-Haefel has recently blogged about his new role in the Java industry. He has accepted a Sr.Analyst position in Burton group. The nature of the new job has forced him to resign from the various JSR’s and open source projects he has been involved. He could have stayed until the release of EJB 3.0 specification and Apache Geronimo has achieved the J2EE certification. But time and tide waits for none.
I wonder whether he will be able to continue writing. I still remember that I and many of my friends were introduced to EJB through his book. The cover page of the book, comes with the photo of a small wooden train and we all fondly named the book as “Train book” 🙂
Richard, thanks for your contribution to the Java community and good luck on your new job.
