ABOUT THE JAVA COMMUNITY PROCESS (JCP) EXECUTIVE COMMITTEES
Under the JCP 2.10 rules, there are 16 Ratified Seats, 6 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.
