Andrew Deitsch is a software engineer who manages an e-business group
at GE's Corporate Research and Development Center in Niskayuna, New
York. Andrew was fortunate enough to be involved in the beta release
of Java in 1995 and has been programming in the language ever
since. The inspiration for this book came from his efforts to use Java
effectively to build internationalized applications and his
frustrations in not finding any books related to this important topic.
