So as not to leave this blog dangling, I thought I'd post a notice here too besides the now customary tweet.
I have decided to pursue another opportunity, so today is my last day at Oracle.
As a bit of history, I joined JavaSoft back in 1997 to work on the first version of EJB and what later became J2EE / Java EE. It's been a long ride and I'm very happy with all that we accomplished (five releases, with a sixth in the making), but it's now time for me to move on.
Thanks to all the readers of this blog over the years. I won't be posting here any more going forward. I did create a new blog which may or may not see some use, depending on the amount of free time I have and my inclination to write.
Thanks and best of luck to everyone!
