I would like to thank my coauthors, Andy Chan, Mario Gray, and especially Josh Long, who had the confidence in having me work on this book project. My thanks go to the editorial staff at Apress whose constant diligence kept this project going. And I want to thank all my colleagues at Shopzilla, in particular Alex Dallal and Rob Roland, who were open to having messaging become a more common part of the Shopzilla architecture. In addition, I would like to thank my former colleagues Lyn Hardy and Mark Thomsen, who introduced me to the world of enterprise integration. And finally I would like to thank my wife, Susan, and children, Emily and Alex, who put up with my long hours seeing this book to completion.
Many thanks ...
