Java Card Forum

The Java Card Forum is an industry association of companies from the smart card, secure operating system and secure silicon industry, working together to promote and develop Java as the preferred programming language for multi-application smart cards, secure devices and other execution environments.

My, how we’ve changed….

In its 20 years of existence, the Java Card Forum has understood the importance of not only marketing Java Card technology, but the Forum itself. The main vehicle for showcasing the JCF has always been the internet, and over the years the website (and associated collateral) has undergone a couple of major changes.

When it first started, the JCF used a simple coloured logo that could be easily identified at a glance, with a basic site layout – remember this?



As the Forum became a wider reaching industry organisation, it was felt that a more “professional” image was required and in the Summer of 2005 a new Look and Feel was released, celebrating the colours of the logo itself.

After 15 years of using the same logo, the members felt it was time to re-brand the Forum and in November 2013 a totally new look was unveiled at the CARTES show in Paris, demonstrating the commitment to the future of the Java Card platform.
