Weaver is a Java developer, author, and speaker with a passion for helping Java to be increasingly leveraged in rich-client applications and the Internet of Things (IoT). Books that Jim has authored include Inside Java, Beginning J2EE, and Pro JavaFX 2. As an Oracle Java Technology Ambassador, Jim speaks internationally at software technology conferences about Java, JavaFX, and the IoT. Jim tweets as @JavaFXpert and blogs at
