Dan Allen is a software consultant, author, and open source advocate. After
graduating from Cornell University with a degree in Materials Science and
Engineering in 2000, Dan became captivated by open source software and web

While logging his many years of experience with enterprise Java, Dan kept his
eyes open for a robust web-application framework, the most coveted spot in a
developer's toolbox. Upon reading about JBoss Seam, Dan immediately recognized
its potential and selected it to fill this void, where it joined the numerous
other Java technologies that Dan has mastered, including EJB 3, JSF (Facelets),
Spring, JPA, Hibernate, Ant, Maven 2, and Groovy.
Excited about Seam, Dan decided to share his thoughts with the world. He is the
author of Seam in Action, published by Manning Publications, a project which he
picked up immediately after completing his three part series on Seam for IBM
developerWorks. Dan is also a committer on the Seam project, an active
participant in the Seam community, and a Java blogger.
Dan's continued success would not be possible without immense support from his
wife, Sarah, with whom he lives in Laurel, MD (USA). You can keep up with Dan's
