The 2006 JCP EC Elections Are Over

Meet the newly elected and re-elected members

(SYS-CON Media) - Congratulations go this year to IBM; Oracle, HP; Fujitsu; Doug Lea, professor of computer science; Motorola; Vodafone; Siemens; BenQ; Ericsson AB; and Jean-Marie Dautelle, individual developer and initiator of several open source projects. The first four are now re-elected on the SE/EE EC for another three-year term as a result of the Ratification Ballot and the fifth as a result of the Open Nominations/Election Ballot.

Representing IBM on the EC, Mark Thomas leads the development teams in providing IBM software developer kits for Java technology. His development experience includes graphics, windowing systems, message queuing, computer-aided telephony, voice response systems, and Java technologies. Don Deutsch, who stands in for Oracle on the EC and other standards boards, is the 2002 recipient of the Edward Lohse Information Technology Medal for his leadership of national and international information technology standardization. Scott Jameson, representing Hewlett-Packard on the EC and other standards organizations, is currently chairman of ISO/IEC JTC 1, Information Technology. Masahiko Narita of Fujitsu Limited serves as primary representative on the EC. He has actively promoted object technology in the Japanese market.

Doug Lea is professor at the computer science department at the State University of New York at Oswego. He authored and co-authored many books and articles about Java and object-oriented systems. Within the JCP, Doug was the Spec Lead for JSR 166, Concurrency Utilities, and has served as an Expert Group member on most JSRs dealing with core Java SE for the past five years.

The runners up in the SE/EE open elections stage were:

  • Capgemini, a full-service IT provider, employs thousands of Java developers. The company joined the JCP community in 2004, served actively on the Java EE 5 and Java SE 6 Expert Groups, and supported the Java Portlet specification and the release of JBI.
  • Tom Crosman follows Java technology very closely - its history, current status, and future, having worked full-time on Java since the launch of JDK 1.0.1. He has commented on JSRs and voted in JCP elections.
  • Jean-Marie Dautelle is an individual developer with affiliations and contributions to open source projects. More about Jean-Marie as winner of the ME EC race.
  • Justen M. Stepka worked with a team to develop, market, and support the IDX sign-on and identity management framework when he was CEO of Authentisoft, recently purchased by Atlassian. He is a contributing author for O'Reilly and other popular publications and a speaker at JUGs and TheServerSide.com conferences.
  • Evan Summers is a Java developer working on foundation classes to reuse in future projects and applications, possibly involving Swing clients using RESTful Web services. He currently participates in JSR 295, Beans Binding, and JSR 296, Swing Application Framework.
  • Mauro Do Valle was a JUG leader in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, for the past four years, doing many events and projects for the Java Community. He joined the JCP program as an individual three years ago.
I'd like to thank all runners up for participating in the 2006 elections and for their strong interest in the JCP. The other members of the SE/EE are Apache Software Foundation, BEA Systems, Borland, Google, Intel, Nortel Networks, Red Hat Middleware LLC, SAP, SAS Institute Inc., Hani Suleiman, and Sun Microsystems. For information on these representatives, go to http://jcp.org/en/participation/committee.

The other elects - Motorola, Vodafone, Siemens, BenQ, Ericsson AB - are now representatives on the ME EC for three-year terms, or in the case of the second highest voted candidate on the ME EC, Jean-Marie Dautelle, for two years (more regarding EC terms in Q/A14 at www.jcpelection2006.org/faq/).

Motorola's primary representative, James Warden, has over 25 years of experience developing software and system architecture for mobile and embedded devices. He is the Maintenance Lead for JSR 118, Mobile Information Device Profile 2.0, and has served on 10 other Expert Groups. Guenter Klas, representing Vodafone, leads the company's terminal standardization program, coordinates the efforts of Vodafone's Spec Leads and Experts, and through his team is involved in standards organizations such as the W3C, the Open Mobile Alliance, Global System for Mobile Communications Association, and Open Mobile Terminal Platform. Siemens AG is represented on the ME EC by Lothar Borrmann, who leads the Software Architecture department in assisting and advising Siemens' Groups regarding software architecture issues, innovations, and trends, including software platform technologies such as the Java technology. At the time of writing, BenQ Corporation is still in the process of appointing a primary representative.

Ericsson AB and Jean-Marie Dautelle came out the winners of the open nomination. Magnus Olsson of Ericsson Mobile Platforms represented Ericsson AB on the ME EC before. He worked with mobile telephony (GSM) infrastructure development, mobile terminals, and Ericsson Mobile Platforms (EMP) incorporating Java ME technology into the applications domain - system design, protocols, testing, and application development. Jean-Marie Dautelle is Java SE 5.0 Certified, the initiator and primary developer of two popular open source projects: Javolution (http://javolution.org) and JScience (http://jscience.org). JScience provides the current Reference Implementation for the Expert Group Jean-Marie serves on - JSR 275, Units Specification.

And the runner up in the ME EC open nominations race was SiRF. By many accounts SiRF is among the fastest-growing companies in Silicon Valley and among market leaders in location technologies and video for mobile handsets. Within the JCP community, SiRF has actively participated in JSR 293, Location API 2.0; JSR 281, IMS Services API; and JSR 298, Telematics API for Java ME.

I'd like to thank SiRF for participating in the open nominations for the JCP ME EC. The other members on the ME EC are IBM, Intel, Nokia, NTT DoCoMo, Orange France, Philips, Research In Motion, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, and Sun Microsystems.
