Twitter and Azul join Java's JCP Executive Committee
The Java Community Process (JCP) Fall elections have closed, and the results see micro-blogging service Twitter and Java runtime specialist Azul Systems taking the two open elected seats on the Executive Committee (EC) for Java SE/EE. Last month, Twitter joined both the JCP and the OpenJDK project. Ericsson AB, Intel and SAP also had their nominations to ratified seats on the Java SE/EE Executive Committee confirmed.
On the Micro Edition Executive Committee, IBM, Nokia and SK Telecom had their seats ratified, while ARM Limited and Werner Keil were elected to the two open seats. Keil was previously elected to the Java SE/EE EC and has effectively moved to the ME executive committee.
Leaving the executive committee for Java SE/EE is VMWare. It previously occupied one of the ratified seats but did not put up for election. Intel previously held an open-elected seat, but was this time given a ratified seat. Turnout for the election was 23 per cent, which was low, but more than the 11 per cent turn out for the JCP special election which saw SouJava and the London Java Community join Goldman Sachs on the JCP EC.
