I bet that chapter 6's "Server-side setup for the examples" has been written by Bear. Am I right ?

I've just noticed that source files were under "org.bibeault"

No, way too obvious an explanation. 'org_bibeault' is a code generator written by Tom, named in honor of the Ol' Rye Grain muffins cooked by Bear's granny that helped to keep us alive during the gruelling coding marathons that led to the creation of this book.

It generates the Javascript and HTML for the examples automatically. We then run it through the GWT compiler, using the little-known --reverse flag to generate Java from the JS. Unfortunately, recent versions of the generator have developed a rudimentary ego, and it's started signing the code that it creates.

I'm kidding, of course. You're right, Bear wrote that chapter.

Outed! I actually meant to go back and change all the package names to someting incocuous like org.booktitle but obviously never got around to it...
