ABOUT THE JAVA COMMUNITY PROCESS (JCP) EXECUTIVE COMMITTEES

The JCP has two Executive Committees (EC) - Standard/Enterprise & Micro Edition, each targets different markets for the Java Platform. Voting Members on each EC serve 3-year terms; there are 10 Ratified Seats, 5 Elected Seats, and the permanent seat held by Sun Microsystems, Inc. The 3-year terms are staggered so that 5 of the 15 seats are normally up for ratification/election each year.

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). For more information on the EC, see the Executive Committee Info page http://jcp.org/en/participation/committee.

SELECTION PROCESS FOR RATIFIED SEATS

Ratified Seats are filled by a simple ratification process. Members are selected for the Ratified Seats using a ratification ballot that is carried out starting the first week of October of each year.

The ratification ballot is carried out as follows:

The PMO nominates Members to fill the vacant Ratified Seats with due regard for balanced community and regional representation. Eligible Members vote to ratify each nominee over a 14-day voting period. Each nominee is ratified by a simple majority of the Community Members who cast a vote.

SELECTION PROCESS FOR ELECTED SEATS

Elected Seats are filled by a straightforward election process. Members are selected for the Elected Seats using an election process that begins the third week of October of each year. Any Member may nominate themselves.

The election ballot is carried out as follows:

The PMO accepts nominations from the Community for a period of 14 days. Eligible Members vote for as many nominees as there are vacant Elected Seats over a 14 day period. The nominees who receive the most votes will fill the vacant Elected Seats.
