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.
