Recently, I had the opportunity to interview Kevin Sutter. He is a subject matter expert for WebSphere Application Infrastructure and works as a Senior Software Engineer in the WebSphere Application Server development group. He is currently the lead architect for the Java Persistence API solution for WebSphere Application Server. Kevin is also a committer and a member of the PMC for the Apache OpenJPA open source project. Kevin's past roles include leadership and architecture of WebSphere solutions for J2EE Connector Architecture (JCA) and WebSphere eXtreme Scale (caching). It was good to catch up with Kevin for a look at the Java Persistence technology and it's usefulness to java developers.
