Java Community Process
Oracle Nominates SouJava to JCP Executive Committee
Oracle has nominated SouJava, the Brazilian Java User Group, to a seat in the JCP Executive Committee. SouJava is one of the oldest and largest Java User Groups in the world with 40,000 members and based in a region where Java and open-source software is prominent. The organization will be represented by its former president Bruno Souza, a well-known independent Java and open source advocate, and earlier member of the OSI. Bruno has a long history with the JCP where he was one of the first individual members to join the organization in 2002. SouJava joined as an organization in 2005 and is now one of many JUGs on the JCP, but so far without a EC seat. We nominate SouJava and Bruno to the EC expecting them to represent the interests of Java users and serve as a community counterbalance to Oracle and other large enterprises on the EC. We are looking forward to Bruno's active participation in the JCP and help us bring Java forward as well as help us reform the JCP in the coming years.
