"Sun Microsystems today announced the members of the two interim Executive Committees (ECs) that will oversee the Java Community Process(SM) (JCP) program, the community-based process for developing Java(TM) technology specifications, reference implementations and associated compatibility test suites. These ECs will serve in full capacity in guiding the JCP program until the first general EC election, which is scheduled for later this fall." Two ECs have been established: one to oversee the Java technologies for the desktop/server space (with responsibility for the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition and Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition technology specifications) and the other to oversee the Java technologies for the consumer/embedded space (with responsibility for the Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition technology specification). The EC members represent a diverse cross-section of technology leaders in both the desktop/server and consumer/embedded markets, including: Apache Software Foundation, Apple, BEA, Caldera, Compaq, Fujitsu, HP, IBM, IONA, Inprise, Insignia, Matsushita, Motorola, Nokia, Novell, Oracle, Palm, Philips, S

"With this announcement, Sun has taken the next step in sharing the responsibility for the development of the Java platform with other members of the international technology community. The formation of the ECs also underscores the software industry's dedication to the success of the JCP program and their commitment to ensuring that Java technology continues to rapidly develop in order to meet the needs of the networked economy. Moreover, the additional direction and expertise of the EC members will further assure the Java technology developer community that they will have access to the highest quality technology for .com computing."
