    and Werner Keil (JCP EC Member) • Java Citizen like many concerned JCP EG Members • Groups • Java User Groups like Paris JUG, Hellenic JUG and Turkey JUG • Companies like Jelastic and PrimeTek
  3. What We Want • Keep Java EE as the strong

    unique standard • Stop movement from standards to products • A really functional Java standards organization • Community-driven Java EE specifications • Oracle's spec leads shall either actively finish Java EE 8 specs, or shall hand out the TCK sources and the needed licences to allow us to volunteer with spec leadership.
  4. What We Do • Sending a petition to Oracle •

    Serving at JCP Expert Groups • Contributing to JSRs • Java EE Evangelism
  5. FAQ • You are forking Java EE, right? • No.

    We want to prevent fragmentation of Java EE. • You want to kick out Oracle of the JCP? • No. We want Oracle to play an active role again. • You take away JSRs from Oracle? • If Oracle has no more interest in a JSR, we offer to take over leadership. • You just want to sell your own product instead! • No. We are solely interested in industrial standards.
  6. How You Can Help • Sign our petition • Add

    your name to the list of supporters • Spread the word • Adopt a JSR • Join an Expert Group
