Hello folks,

My name is Reza Rahman. I am a Senior Software Engineer/Community
Outreach Advocate at Caucho Technology focused on Resin’s EJB 3.1 Lite
and CDI containers. I am also the author of EJB 3 in Action from Manning
Publishing. The book is currently in second edition and covers EJB 3.1,
CDI and JPA 2 (as well as a smattering of JSF 2). I am a relatively
frequent speaker at Java User Groups and conferences including
TheServerSide and JavaOne. I had been an independent member of the Java
EE 6 and EJB 3.1 expert groups (before I joined Caucho). Besides this EG
I am also part of the EJB 3.2 and JMS 2 EGs.

Before I joined Caucho I have primarily been an independent consultant
focused on Java EE system architecture. I have been working with Java EE
since its inception, developing on almost every major application
platform ranging from Tomcat to JBoss, GlassFish, WebSphere and
WebLogic. I've developed enterprise systems for companies like Motorola,
Comcast, Nokia, Guardian Life, Prudential, Independence Blue Cross,
Citigroup, Accenture and GMAC using EJB 2, EJB 3, Spring and Seam 2.

I have the pleasure of knowing many of you personally and consider it a
privilege to get a chance to work with you again.

Beyond a sincere interest in ensuring that Java EE 7 effectively meets
the needs of Caucho customers and the Java community at large, as such
there isn't an area that I consider more important than another. The
current proposal appears to be very well-thought out. More importantly,
I currently do not see any significant gaps in it. If I was to mention
particular concerns they would be that we can evolve the EJB programming
model in a timely fashion for a next generation of Java EE developers
(thereby removing one of the most prominent reasons for enterprise
developers not adopting Java EE) and properly align/leverage CDI as well
as managed beans with the rest of the platform APIs in a seamless fashion.
