There have been a number of individuals and articles that have raised concerns around a Java Community Process Executive Committee nomination made by Oracle. To address these concerns, Oracle Vice President of Development Adam Messinger has voiced his thoughts in a well-worded and genuinely voiced response to a blog
by Stephen Colebourne. Quick excerpt:
"Hologic has bet their business on Java -- not as a supplier of Java, but as a consumer -- and we think having their perspective on the EC is valuable. They are absolutely representative of a large cross section of the Java community."
"Finally, on the topic of "stacking" the board, I believe that our re-nomination of both RedHat and Apache speaks volumes about our interest in having many voices at the table. Similarly I reached out to Josh Bloch of Google to encourage him to renominate himself."
Henrik Stahl has captured Adam's comment
in his own blog as well.
