2005 JCP EC Election Final Results Are In

Congratulations and welcome aboard to the elected members

The election marathon that kicked off in September concluded last month with the open elections for the two JCP ECs. Congratulations and welcome aboard to the elected members: Intel Corporation and Hani Suleiman for the SE/EE EC and Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB and Symbian Ltd for the ME EC.

It's now time to meet the individuals designated by these companies to represent them on the ECs.

I'll start with the members elected in the open elections. Intel will be represented on the SE/EE EC by Wayne Carr who brings a wealth of technical experience to the committee. Since June 2002, when Intel joined the JCP program, Wayne took an active role in the EC and got involved in the development of various JSRs. He closely followed JSR 185, Java Technology for the Wireless Industry, as an observer, and currently participates as an Expert Group member in the development of several JSRs including JSR 250, Common Annotations for the Java Platform; JSR 270, Java SE 6 ("Mustang"") Release Contents; and JSR 277, Java Module System. Wayne also coordinates cross-company Intel participation in the JCP program. He previously represented Intel on the Java ME Executive Committee

Hani Suleiman is an individual developer newly elected to the SE/EE EC. He has been involved with Java technology since 1998, is a regular contributor to a number of open source projects, and also serves as the lead developer/maintainer for some of them. Hani is a member of several JCP Expert Groups including JSR 220, EJB 3, JSR 244 , Java EE 5, JSR 245, JSP 2.1, JSR 250, Common Annotations, and JSR 277, Module System for Java. He also serves on the steering committee for the OpenSymphony group, an umbrella organization providing a number of quality open source solutions such as WebWork, OSCache, Sitemesh, and OSWOrkflow.

Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB will be represented on the ME EC by Hanz Häger. Early in his career, Hanz worked primarily with open systems. He first encountered Java technology around 1995 when porting a Java Virtual Machine to an open operating system for Ericsson. At Ericsson, he developed Internet applications. One of his projects was a community-based group communication solution for mobile phones. He also managed a Unix-based product for the Ericsson AXE-10 Switch used worldwide.

Symbian Ltd will be represented on the ME EC by Stuart John who has been Symbian's primary representative on the Micro Edition Executive Committee since the beginning of 2005.

The member companies elected through the ratified ballot in this year's elections are BEA Systems, SAP AG, and SAS Institute Inc. for the SE/EE EC, and Nokia Corporation, IBM, and Philips Electronics UK Ltd for the ME EC. They are represented by IT industry veterans with extensive expertise in Java technology and community work.

Edward Cobb is a vice president with BEA Systems and in this role he oversees BEA's participation in standards and open source organizations, including the Java Community Process (JCP) Program, World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS), Object Management Group (OMG), Web Services Interoperability Organization (WS-I), and the Eclipse Foundation. He is also responsible for BEA's involvement in technical collaborations with other software companies including the Web services set of specifications (with IBM and Microsoft) and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) Programming Model specifications (with IBM).

As vice president of SAP NetWeaver Standards, Michael Bechauf is responsible for defining the company's industry standards strategy. He coordinates all standards-related activities of the SAP Platform Ecosystem including SAP's standards contributions through the JCP Program. In 2002 Michael became SAP's primary representative on the SE/EE Executive Committee and has coordinated the activity of SAP engineers involved in the development of JSRs.

The newest corporate member on the JCP SE/EE EC is SAS Institute and will be represented by its director of Java Development Environments, Rich Main. Rich brings to the committee an extensive software development experience and a track record of active participation in industry organizations that promote open standards for the development and deployment of robust Java technology-based enterprise applications.

Moving on to the ME EC, IBM will be represented by David Girle, a senior software developer, who previously worked in the Embedded Systems Group at Object Technology International (OTI) in Phoenix, Arizona. David first became involved in the JCP program in 2003 when he participated as an Expert Group member for JSR 226 Scalable 2D Vector Graphics API for J2ME. Two years later, he joined the JSR 246, Device Management API Expert Group as a member.

Nokia Corporation is represented by its director of Java Platform Standardization, Pentti Savolainen, a veteran of the mobile communications industry, now re-elected to the ME EC for another three-year term.

Jon Piesing is joining the ME EC for Philips Electronics UK. A senior technical consultant, Jon has worked for the past several years with Java technology in consumer devices, especially the Multimedia Home Platform (MHP) initiative of the Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) project.

More details about the EC members and their Java technology and community expertise are posted under "Community Focus Series: EC Members Profiles" on JCP.org (http://jcp.org/en/press/ec/commFocus_ec_landing).
