ABOUT THE JAVA COMMUNITY PROCESS (JCP) EXECUTIVE COMMITTEES
Under the JCP 2.11 rules, the EC will be resized.
After the 2020 annual elections, there will be 11 Ratified Seats, 4 Elected Seats, 2 Associate Seats and
the permanent seat held by Oracle America. Members serve 2-year terms that are staggered so that
12 of the 24 seats are normally up for ratification/election each year.
- For the 2020 annual elections, two Ratified and one Elected Seats will be eliminated,
thereby reducing the EC to 18 members.
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.
