Java Community Process

A system for allowing third parties to submit requests for new features to Java. JCP is a formal process, and fees are involved. In 1999, Sun submitted Java to the ECMA standards body, but withdrew its J2SE specification later in the year. Prior to being acquired by Oracle, Sun continued to promote its own JCP methodology.
