Born in 1971, Bill Burke fell in love with middleware when he was introduced to DCE while at the parent company of Open Environment Corporation. He later went on to being a core member of the Orbix2000 team at Iona, where he helped them build some of their CORBA products. After weathering a few internet startups building J2EE applications, he stumbled into JBoss and helped them with their clustering architecture and EJB container. Now as lead architect of JBoss 4, his main focus is on bringing AOP concepts and technology to the JBoss application server. He is co-author of O'Reilly's "JBoss 3.2 Workbook," and has numerous other in-print and on-line publications. He graduated magna cum laude with a B.S.C.S. from Northeastern University in Boston in 1994.
