Final Results of the JCP Elections

A close race

In October we announced the winners of the first round of this year's JCP elections, during which members voted for three Sun-nominated candidates on each Executive Committee (EC). To refresh your memory, the winners on the Java ME EC were Research in Motion (RIM), Samsung, and Time Warner Cable. The Java SE/EE EC winners were the Apache Software Foundation, Red Hat Middleware, and Nortel.

 The second and final round of the elections completed in November. During this round JCP members voted for candidates who nominated themselves for two open seats on each of the two ECs. There were five candidates for the ME EC and seven for the SE/EE EC, and the election was closely fought.
