Isaak says the so-called Real Time Java Working Group chose badly when it opted for NCITS as its standards route.
Malavalli chairs the NCITS T11 committee and is a member of the board of the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) and the Fibre Channel Industry Association (FCIA), which promotes Fibre Channel technologies and related products.
There's also the continuing effort at NCITS supported by Hewlett-Packard Co and Microsoft to create a Java specification for real-time systems which is independent of Sun that could, if taken up, go forward for standardization.
NCITS develops national standards and its technical experts participate on behalf of the United States in the international standards activities of ISO/IEC JTC 1 in Information Technology.
NCITS has already turned down one application to adopt a Real-Time Working Group spec for standardization.
ITT serves as secretariat for NCITS (the National Committee for Information Technology Standards) and for the JTC I TAG, the U.
That's if it can't convince NCITS the National Committee for Information Technology Standardization to sponsor the standard.
By William Fellows Siemens Nixdorf Informationssystemes AG says it remains committed to the aims of Real Time Java Working Group despite the wall RTWG ran into last week when NCITS voted not to sponsor its proposal for standardization.
In front of the meeting was a motion to proceed without using Sun's intellectual property, though some members were arguing that it would not be different enough from what NCITS voted down.
