Cinterion Wireless Modules, Credit Suisse, Fujitsu and HP – were

organisations – represented by selected individuals – are in charge
of overseeing the development of Java,
voting on
technical specifications (JSRs), approving Draft Reviews and giving
final approval to Reference Implementations. The Executive
Committee is intended to represent a broad cross-section of the
Java community

A full breakdown reveals that the LJC won a whopping 33% of
votes, while CloudBees picked up 20%. With only two seats open,
ZeroTurnaround (who, with 13%, came third) and the other six
candidates were left in the cold.

In terms of turnout, 23.70% of eligible JCP members
participated in the election, almost identical to last year’s 23%,
