Nov 21, 2000, 13:36 (2 Talkback[s])

"The Program Management Office of the Java Community Process (JCP) program today announced the new Executive Committee (EC) members of the JCP, the community process for evolving Java technology. These 30 EC members, who were voted into office by the Java technology developer community through the JCP program, will guide the development of the Java platform for a 3-year term staggered to allow for 5 of the 15 seats of each Executive Committee to come up for election each year. The new EC members will take office on December 12, 2000."

"Hosted by PricewaterhouseCoopers, the JCP 2.0 elections process highlights that the JCP 2.0 program, launched last June, is a successful, open, community-based process for developing Java technology specifications, reference implementations and associated technology compatibility kits. The JCP community members' active participation in the elections process demonstrates that the software industry is dedicated to the JCP program's goal of rapidly developing the Java technologies while balancing the need to maintain cross-platform capability, Java's most valuable characteristic. The JCP program has been in place since 1998. JCP 2.0 builds upon the original process by creating two separate executive committees -- consumer/embedded and enterprise markets -- and by clarifying processes for issue resolution, responsibility sharing, and voting."
