"We had a successful JCP EC election this year with JCP Member voter turnout at almost 40% overall; 35% for
Full and Partner Members, and 44% for Associate Members! These are very strong representation numbers,
especially from the Associate Membership category. I'd like to congratulate the winners, and thank all
of the nominees for their participation. We are looking forward to welcoming the new members at our next
meeting in December," said Heather VanCura, Group Director of the JCP Program Office.
The new EC Members will take office on 4 December 2018. EC Members guide the
evolution of the Java technologies by approving and voting on all technology proposals (Java Specification
Requests, or JSRs). They are also responsible for defining the JCP's rules of governance and the legal agreement
between members and the organization. They provide guidance to the Program Management Office (PMO) and they
represent the interests of the JCP to the broader community.
This year, 16 candidates participated in the EC elections including individual developers, corporate entities and Java User Groups (JUGs).
