Acknowledgments – Code Generation in Action


It takes a lot of effort to write a book, and that doesn’t happen on one’s own. My thanks go to Eric Rollins for his contribution to chapter 10, “Creating database access generators.” I’d also like to thank Marjan Bace, Lori Piquet, and the Manning team for their valuable insight and support. My thanks to technical editor Joe Kleinschmidt for his assistance and advice, and to the following reviewers who took the time to read the manuscript as it was being developed and send in their comments: Wai-Sun Chia, Jeff Cohen, Joel Farley, Clifford Heath, Bruce Ikin, Mark Probert, Norman Richards, Dan Sugalski, and Austin Ziegler.

And finally, I’d like to thank the 2001–2002 Miami Hurricanes football team for providing an example of excellence that I can only hope to achieve.
