2013 EC Elections Process Set to Start

Calling anyone interested in running for a JCP Executive Committee seat!   This year will be an exciting election since the current EC Members and any prospective new EC Members will run for election--24 EC seats will be ratified or elected by the JCP Program Membership (specific details on this below).  Now is the time to prepare your nomination! The official nomination period begins 13 September.  Exact details for nomination submissions are available on the JCP EC Elections page.

JCP 2.9 with a Merged EC Took Effect in November 2012. The final step in implementing JCP 2.9 concludes with the 2013 Fall Executive Committee Elections, starting in September. This year, as defined in the Appendix B of the JCP 2.9 Process Document, all of the elected and ratified seats are up for re-election. Three Ratified and two Elected Seats will be eliminated, reducing the EC to a total of 25 members - 16 Ratified Seats, 8 Elected Seats and one permanent seat held by Oracle America, Inc.

JCP 2.9 defines EC seats will have two year term cycles (instead of three year term cycles). Members elected in 2013 will be ranked to determine whether their initial term will be one or two years. The 50% of Ratified and 50% of Elected members who receive the most votes will serve an initial two-year term, while all others will serve an initial one year term.  All members elected in 2014 and subsequently will serve a two-year term.

The nomination period of the Elections will begin on 13 September. The JCP will accept self-nominations for the 8 Elected Seats through 26 September.  JCP Members (JSPA 2 Primary Contacts) will receive messages with instructions for nominating and their login credentials via email on 13 September. You will need this credential information to login and complete the nomination.
The ballot with nominees for Ratified and Elected seats will be open from 15 October until 28 October. The results will be available on jcp.org on 29 October.

For now, prepare your materials and plan to attend the JCP BoF session at JavaOne as well as the Meet the Candidates call on Thursday, 10 October at 9:30 AM PDT.  As a nominee to the Executive Committee, you are encouraged to attend the "Meet the JCP Executive Committee Candidates" (Session ID: BOF4672) at JavaOne the week of 22 September at the Hilton in San Francisco (JavaOne Conference pass required).

These are great opportunities to present your qualification statements to the eligible voters. Please notify us if you plan to attend: pmo at jcp.org.

JCP Executive Committee Elections


The first phase of the 2007 Java Community Process (JCP) EC elections is under way, providing developers a chance to influence the future directions of Java standards.

The Java Community Process (JCP) is the process that guides the evolution of standard Java APIs (JSR). The JCP is made up of two executive committees (EC), one devoted to Java SE/EE, and the other to Java ME.

Each year, one third of each executive committee is up for election by the community. In the first phase of the JCP elections, the community votes on PMO's nominees, while the second phase invites nominations from the broader community.

The EC members guide the evolution of the Java technologies. The EC represents a cross-section of both major stakeholders and other members of the Java Community. Duties are: select JSRs for development, approve draft Specifications for Public Review, approve Final Specifications, review TCK appeals, approve Maintenance revisions and possibly defer some features to a new JSR, approve transfer of maintenance duties between members and provide guidance to the Program Management Office (PMO).

This year, the Apache Software Foundation, Borland, Google, Nortel, Red Hat on the EE/SE side, and Intel, DoCoMo, RIM, Orange, and Samsung, on the ME side, are up for re-election.


During the Ratification Vote, members vote to ratify each Program Management Office (PMO)-nominated member. The following seats are on the Ratification Ballot:

Standard/Enterprise Edition Executive Committee (SE/EE EC)
  • Apache Software Foundation
  • Nortel
  • Red Hat Middleware LLC

Micro Edition Executive Committee (ME EC)
  • Research In Motion, LTD (RIM)
  • Samsung Electronics Corporation
  • Time Warner Cable Inc.

Following the ratification, members are eligible to nominate themselves for the remaining seats (October 16 - 26) and vote in the final Elections.

Voting is open to developers who join the JCP.
