Japan has cast its vote over Sun Microsystems Inc’s application to become a submitter of standards to the International Standards Organization (ISO). It appears to have voted Yes, with comments. The main comments are fairly non-controversial but they do insist that the Joint Technical Committee 1 (JTC1) of the ISO should maintain the Java technologies not Sun alone. It also requests that sun should only submit the Java language spec, Java class file format, Java byte codes, and core APIs, because those things are already out in the public domain. Anything else should not be submitted this time round, says the Japanese comment. There’s no word on the tally yet because ISO, Sun and ANSI are keeping this particular open standards process firmly closed to outside prying.
