What is the Java Community Process? It's the way the Java Community participates in the proposal, selection, and development of Java APIs.
The JCP Executive Committees (EC) are members who guide the evolution of Java technology in the Java Community Process (JCP). There are two ECs: the Java SE/EE Executive Committee and the Java ME Executive Committee. EC members represent both major stakeholders and a representative cross-section of the Java Community. Each year, a third of the Executive Committees are up for election. Those elections are happening now.
Information about the election is in Patrick Curran's "A Crowded Field
" blog. You can find details about the nominees on the jcp.org nominees page
. Voting is open until 31 October.
If you want to influence how Java moves forward, you should vote.
