Dan Allen


Dan Allen is a passionate Java EE software developer, consultant, and author of Seam in Action with over eight years of development experience using technologies that include Java frameworks (Seam, JSF, EJB3, Hibernate, Spring, Struts), testing frameworks (JUnit, TestNG), JavaScript and DOM scripting, CSS and page layouts, Maven 2, Ant, Groovy, and many others.

After graduating from Cornell University with a degree in Materials Science and Engineering in 2000, Dan became captivated by the world of free and open source software, which gave him his debut in software development. He soon discovered the combination of Linux and the Java EE platform to be the ideal blend on which to build his professional career, with his interests equally divided between the two platforms.

Dan is also a dedicated open source advocate, a committer on the Seam project, an active participant in the Seam community, and a Java blogger. You can keep up with Dan's development experiences by subscribing to his blog at
