"Sun Microsystems hopes to silence open-source critics and bring more industry leaders into the Java fold by revamping the way the company oversees management of its Java development group."
"To date, Sun has made all the decisions regarding the direction for Java. In a major change for the Palo Alto, California-based company, Sun is forming an executive committee that will include 16 members from other Java players. The committee, with executives from Oracle, IBM, and Novell, will decide which proposals for new specs are approved for development."
"'Companies are making five-year business plans around Java. They would feel much more comfortable if they knew not just one for-profit company was making decisions around the future of the platform,' said Ken Urquhart, architect of Sun's Java Community Process."
