Over the years, Rajiv has had a substantial impact on numerous JCP projects. He says, "Being part of the Java EE team since the very first release, and experiencing how the team came together to build the platform that would eventually be the foundation of how enterprise software was going to be developed, I have just loved working on the various aspects of the platform. I was particularly interested in the Web related areas, and have focused on the various specifications in that area." He is currently the Spec Lead for JSR 340, Java Servlet 3.1 Specification. He is the Maintenance Lead for several JSRs that were his original proposals, including JSR 315, Java Servlet 3.0 Specification, and JSR 250, Common Annotations for the Java Platform.
