Many thanks to David Yeater of International Consulting Group who took on the herculean challenge of making sure that the jumble of knowledge in my brain actually came out in a form readable by humans. Also thanks to Amr Y. Eissa of International Consulting Group.
To my review team: Elizabeth Purcell, Lisa Elser, Nam Cho, and Adrian Cockcroft, thank you for all your comments, criticisms, and suggestions that made this a better book. I am proud to have worked with all of you, and prouder still to call you all friends.
Special thanks to the Sun BluePrints Technical Publications Manager, Barb Jugo. Without her work and support, this book would never have been published.
Thanks to Gabe Camarillo for his work on the illustrations and photos ...
