I've worked closely with Lahiru over
the last few months on integrating Axis2 Web services tools into WTP. He
had always been open to suggestions and responsive to bugs. His
dedication to his work is shown in the RFEs, bugs, tutorials and test plans
he contributed to Axis2 Web services tools in WTP 2.0. He would sure
be an asset as a committer to the Web services component team.

[wtp-dev] Nomination of Lahiru Sandakith
to WTP Web services Committer
To the Web Services and WSDL Committers ,
it is with great pleasure I am writing to nominate Lahiru Sandakith from
WSO2 as a Committer on the Web Services Component team of the WTP project.
Since about October last year, Lahiru has been operating as a dedicated
member of the WTP Web Services tools team on the design, development, testing
and documentation of a new set of extensions to the Web services platform
in WTP 2.0 to support the development of Apache Axis2 Web services and
clients. Lahiru has contributed a substantial amount of new code to the
platform and in so doing accomplished rich integration between Eclipse
WTP and Apache Axis2. Along the way, he has amassed impressive breadth
and depth of knowledge in plug-in development for the Eclipse and, of course,
WTP Web services platforms. He has contributed extensions to the Eclipse
preferences framework, the Web services framework and the facets framework.
He implemented a mechanism similar to that found in Server Tools whereby
WTP does not include any actual Axis2 code, but instead allows the user
to point WTP to an independent Axis2 installation and, under the covers,
reflectively exploit it. Not limiting himself to just "the code",
he has also written tutorials and contributed functional test suites for
the Axis2 tools. The query below  demonstrates the variety of RFEs and
bugs Lahiru has responsively worked on over the past few months.
Lahiru has applied sound judgement, skill, discipline, adaptability, insight,
a genuinely affable nature and strong sense of enthusiasm and helpfulness
to the Eclipse WTP project - all traits typical of a Committer. In recognition
of Lahiru's accomplishments to date and to unleash him on a variety of
improvements to the Axis2 tools we wish to explore beyond WTP 2.0, please
join me in casting a "+1" for Lahiru as a WTP Web services Committer.
Many thanks for your time and attention,
