Oracle Nominate SouJava
Brazilian Java User Group for JCP EC Seat?
Oracle have nominated the Brazilian Java User Group 'SouJava' for a seat on the JCP Executive Committee. SouJava comprises of 40,000 members, and will be represented by former SouJava president and earlier member of the OSI, Bruno Souza. SouJava joined the JCP back in 2005, but so far does not have an EC seat. Bruno Souza has also been a member of the JCP since 2002.
"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," says Henrik Ståhl.
