Under the JCP 2.11 rules, the EC will be resized.

  • For the 2019 annual elections, three Ratified and one Elected Seats will be eliminated, thereby reducing the EC to 21 members.
  • For the 2020 annual elections, two Ratified and one Elected Seats will be eliminated, thereby reducing the EC to 18 members.
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.

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.
