Steve Harris, Senior VP of Application Server Development at Oracle, announced today at this week's IOUC conference that Oracle will nominate SouJava to the JCP Executive Comity with Bruno Souza as the representative.

JCP's chair Patrick Curran has a nice blog entry on the presence of JUG's in the JCP and what it would mean for SouJava and Bruno if elected. Note that the election dates haven't been decided yet.

Today at Oracle Headquarters, Bruno had interesting comments on his motivations.
