  Ecma International - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ecma International - European association for standardising information and communication systems came into existence in 1994, when the European Computer Manufacturers Association (ECMA) changed its name in order to reflect the international activities of the organisation (the long form of "ECMA" was dropped then, and capitalization changed to reflect this).
ECMA was founded in 1961 to standardise computer systems in Europe.
Membership is open to companies which produce, market or develop computer or communication systems in Europe.

 European Computer Manufacturers Association - Wikipedia
Die European Computer Manufacturers Association (ECMA) ist eine private Normungsorganisation und wurde 1961 gegründet, um Computersysteme, genauer Informations- und Kommunikationssysteme in Europa zu standardisieren.
Die ECMA versteht sich als Organisation von der Industrie für die Industrie, was im Gegensatz zu den meisten anderen von Staaten oder Staatenbünden getragenen Standardisierungsorganisationen wie DIN, ISO, CEN, etc. steht.
Selbst bezeichnet sich die ECMA deswegen als Erfinder des "fast tracking" Konzeptes von Spezifikationen ("inventor and main practitioner of the concept of "fast tracking" of specifications drafted in international standards...").

In a surprise move, Microsoft was among 23 companies--all ECMA members--meeting in Kyoto, Japan, voting in favor of having ECMA develop a formal Java international standard.
Cargill said the next step will be for ECMA to form a technical committee to do the actual hands-on work of turning the Java specifications from a de facto industry standard to a formal international standard.
Going the ECMA route is a major departure for Sun, which has fought a hard, two-year battle to be accepted as a presenter of the standard to ISO's JCT 1 committee, a joint technical committee comprised of members of both ISO and the International Electrotechnical Commission.

 Sun renews Java standards effort | CNET News.com
Sun has submitted a proposal to the European Computer Manufacturers Association to bring a Sun-controlled Java standard to the International Standards Organization, documents obtained by CNET News.com show.
In an April 30 letter to ECMA secretary general Jan Van Den Beld, Sun Java Software president Alan Baratz said Sun proposes to make Java 2 a standard, including the programming language, the virtual machine that powers the "write once, run anywhere" universality of Java, and supporting software libraries.
Going through ECMA apparently is an attempt to make sure that future modifications to Java come from Sun's Java community process, as opposed to turning over the evolution of Java to JTC1.
