You have to start sometime...

Like many before me here I am posting my first blog entry. This day had to come eventually ;-).

I'm going to be blogging on TopLink related topics--both Oracle TopLink and the open source TopLink Essentials--as well as on the Java Persistence API (JPA) in general. I'll also share news about the Eclipse Dali JPA Tools project which I'm involved with. Dali's heading for 1.0 in June as part of the Eclipse Europa release so there's lots of work going on there.

I'd created this account a few days ago and was looking for a topic for my first blog but before I found it I read an interesting blog by Mike Milinkovich on the recent announcement of people named ACM Distinguished Engineers and thought I'd add a comment. And when I did, it linked my comments to my blog--and it was as yet blank. So here I am. Hopefully subsequent entries will be more substantial.

Thanks for starting this blog. In my past avatar I was so used to communicating through blogs that when I joined Oracle Consulting, I was so missing it. Loved to see your and Doug's blogs. What a relief!
