Profiles of JCP EC Representatives

The job of an Executive Committee (EC) representative is a serious commitment. The time required is extensive, and includes reading of specifications, Reference Implementations (RIs), and Technology Compatibility Kits (TCKs), as well as regular attendance at EC meetings and teleconferences to discuss and vote on various technical and process topics. Besides voting on Java Specification Requests (JSRs) at various stages, the EC guides the Program Management Office (PMO) in the evolution of the Java Community Process (JCP) program. EC decisions can have significant, long-term consequences to not only the community, but also in the industry and the market. Still, plenty of JCP participants relish the task of representing a corporation, non-profit, open source group, or themselves.
