Java expert witness candidates typically have years of experience in computer science, software engineering, and/or computer engineering. The chosen expert could be a member of a technical industry organization such as The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), The Software Alliance, or the IEEE. In a high profile case, a law firm may request a professional with prior expert witness testimony experience.
Often, Java matters requiring expert witness services involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation, copyright infringement, or trade secret misappropriation. A software forensic expert has experience reverse engineering software code to determine if there is evidence to reveal intellectual property infringement or theft. Litigation support by a Java expert witness could include source code review, software analysis, prior art search, an expert report, expert opinion, and expert testimony at a trial. Example projects that Cahn Litigation Services has placed Java programming language experts have included:
