About Us


The avaJava.com website is the brainchild of Deron Eriksson (myself). It started off as a collection of common code snippets that I find useful when writing Java web applications. I eventually expanded these snippets to include accompanying text descriptions and screen captures so that others could also utilize this information.

For more information or to find out about our consulting services, please contact us.
