Welcome to JavaRanch!

We're pleased to have you here with us in the JSP forum, but there
are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are
required. Please take a look at the
JavaRanch Naming Policy and
adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious. You may use initials for the first name but not the last.

You can change it here
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
