Liferay Nomination to the JCP

Company Blogs October 25, 2010 By Ray Augé Staff

The JCP Election is just around the corner and Liferay is on the ballot for the first time ever. Being that it is the first time, you may want to know what motivates Liferay's desire for a seat on the JCP?

Frankly it's not a political one. It's purely pragmatic! Liferay would like to see things get done, to see the JCP process in the most effective state it can be. Liferay is not new to the java world and Liferay knows open source. It knows it well as a provider as well as a consumer being itself one of the largest consumers of open source java projects in the industry. On the other hand Liferay is aware of the need to drive revenue whether as an individual or as an enterprise. So, we like to not waste time and get things done. There is no political engine at work. There is only reality which demands that solutions arrive in a timely fashion; and yet Liferay is keenly aware that standardization is nessecary and can take time. Adressing the needs of a wide audience can be difficult and filled with roadblocks beyond just the technical ones. To that end Liferay wants to bring it's pragmatic know how to bare and drive innovation at it's heart. There is no better venue than the JCP.

So then, the key techincal concerns for Liferay are primarly to preserve an open, unfragmented, ubiquitous Java platform, to see improved development agility, to strive for increased modularity and to reach those goals sooner than later. The future looks bright if the JCP's focus can stay on track and Liferay would like to help make that happen.
