Im a 40 year veteran of IT. I was first introduced to DataPower back in 2007, and WebSphere before that, and spent a number of years teaching programming, DataPower and WebSphere for IBM partners.
My main niche now is DataPower and eXtreme Scale.
I've been writing productivity tools for IBM DataPower since 2007 (the moment I learned there was a SOMA interface!). Our tool-set is the fastest, most productive in the world (a little arrogance doesn't hurt - but I know my competition well). I try to help folks as much as possible with common-sense, practical approaches to DataPower, Java, Web, DataBases, and anything else where I can bring some assistance.
