Meet the JCP EC Candidates on Thursday 13 October

The 2016 Java Community Process (JCP) program Executive Committee (EC) nominations period has closed. The ballot will open on Tuesday, 1 November, but the nomination materials for all of the candidates have been posted on JCP.org. This year the elections are a bit different as a result of the changes introduced in the latest version of the JCP program, JCP  2.10 implemented earlier this year.

JCP 2.10 introduced classes of membership - Full Members, Partner Members, Associate Members.  JCP 2.10 also changes the composition of the EC to 16 Ratified seats, 6 Elected seats and 2 Associate seats. The two Associate seats are taken from the existing Elected seats. Full and Partner Members vote for the Ratified and Elected seats. Associate Members vote for the Associate seats. Nominees (who must be Full or Partner members) must specify whether they will run for an Elected or an Associate seat at the time of nomination. 

We decided to allow the community to have a bit more time to get to know the candidates - We will have a 'Meet the Candidates'  teleconference hosted by the Program Office, with the candidates on Thursday, 13 October at 10:00 AM Pacific Time. The recording of this call will be available on the JCP.org multimedia page if you cannot attend live.

The EC has a total of 25 members - 16 Ratified Seats, 6 Elected Seats, 2 Associate Seats and one permanent seat held by Oracle. This year there are 8 Ratified seats and 6 Elected seats up for election by the JCP Membership. JCP Members vote on the ballot to determine the JCP EC Members for the upcoming term.  And the candidates this year are... 

RATIFIED - 7 Candidates: Gemalto, Goldman Sachs, MicroDoc, NXP, SAP, Software AG, V2COM. One seat remains empty due to the recent resignation of TOTVS.  The JCP will hold a special election to fill this seat.

ELECTED - 11 Candidates (for 6 open seats): Alibaba, Azul, Eclipse, Green Tea JUG, Hazelcast, iJUG, Jelastic, London Java Community, Geir Magnusson Jr., Tomitribe, Twitter.

ASSOCIATE - 5 Candidates (for 2 open seats): Luca Botti, Ivar Grimstad, Werner Keil, Morocco JUG, Peter Pilgrim.

Please join us to meet the candidates next Thursday (details for call to be posted soon)!  You can find the following information on the candidates: biography of primary contact, picture,  qualification statement and position paper (optional).

The 2016 EC Election ballot will open on 1 November for JCP Members to cast their votes, which will determine the JCP EC Members for the 2016-2017 term. The ballot will remain open until 14November at midnight PST, and the results of the election will be published on 15 November.

JCP Members: please take this opportunity you have to influence the direction of Java by being informed and voting for the members of the EC!   JCP Members can nominate themselves to serve as Expert Group Members or Contributors to JSRs and can vote in the annual Elections in November (you must join by 27 October to participate in the 2016 Elections). If you are not yet a JCP member, I encourage you to join the JCP now and take part in the JCP Membership Drive - if you join before 27 October you can participate in the Elections.

JCP 2016 Award Nominess

The nominations for the 14th annual JCP Program Awards have closed. Congratulations to the nominees of the 14th Annual JCP Program Awards!  The community gets together every year during JavaOne to celebrate the nominees at the JCP Party.  The winners will be announced during the evening at the party, happening on Monday, 19 September, at the amazing Cityscape venue on top of the Hilton in San Francisco.  This year there are four categories of awards:  Member of the Year, Outstanding Spec Lead, Most Significant JSR, and Outstanding Adopt-a-JSR Participant.  Thank you to the community members who submitted nominations. The JCP Executive Committee will vote to determine the winners of the awards. The nominees for the 2016 JCP Awards are....


JCP Member/Participant of the Year:

  • Arjan Tijms: Expert group member for JSR 372, and highly active committer. Arjan is a serious community contributor that is active in pretty much every Java EE JSR and is helping moving forward the Security JSR and JSF 2.3.
  • Christian Kaltepoth: Christian is instrumental in keeping the MVC specification moving forward. He has great work on MVC 1.0 and Ozark.
  • Reza Rahman: Excellent leadership and perseverance moving JSRs forward. He's helped to coordinate activities around many JSRs that target next Java EE release.
  • Roman Grigoriadi: Roman is a member of JSONB team responsible for the reference implementation. He's done a great job developing the RI from scratch to a functional version what we have now.
  • Werner Keil: Werner is one of the few JCP EC members consistently vocal about Java EE. He also helps contribute to a number of Java EE JSRs including JSON-P.


Outstanding Spec Lead:

  • Antoine Sabot-Durand: Antoine has been driving CDI 2.0 (JSR 365, Contexts and Dependency Injection) steadily towards its ambitious technical goals. He has generated a enthusiastic spirit of collaboration among the members of the CDI Expert Group and members of the community, running this JSR in an exemplarily transparent manner. He hosts weekly meetings with the expert group and interested community members and generates lively discussions in the EG mailing list and JIRA.
  • Dmitry Kornilov: Besides limited resources and full time commitment to other projects, Dmitry managed to push the JSON-B (JSR-367) spec forward. Dmitry's responsive participation in user / expert mailing list and prompt updates to specification contributed to a fresh feel of project liveness. JSON-B is one of the only Java EE 8 JSRs still on track thanks to Dmitry.
  • Martin Scott Nicklous: Scott has been an excellent lead, and has pushed this spec continuously forward, working tirelessly on the TCK, spec, etc. Scott is the Spec Lead of JSR 362 (Portlet 3.0) and has been a strong, consistent, and steady leader since the JSR was started back in 2013. Scott has contributed many of the ideas and features that are found in this new version of the Portlet Specification. In addition, he has carefully and respectfully considered all of the feedback from the EG over the years. He cares deeply about the success and adoption of portlet technology and has been dedicated to his role as Spec Lead.Outstanding effort in leading the Portlet 3.0 Spec (JSR-362). Scott has written the majority of the 3.0, as well as the reference implementation and TCK. Truly an exceptional talent and hard worker!
  • Neil Griffin: Neil Griffin is the spec lead for JSR 378: Portlet 3.0 Bridge for JavaServerTM Faces 2.2 Specification. He has been proposing changes and additions to the Portlet Bridge Spec and API on a weekly to bi-weekly basis. He always explains the need for changes in depth and answers the questions of the other experts. He listens to feedback and is willing to consider other points of view. See the mailing list and FACES issues for more details: https://java.net/projects/faces-bridge-spec/lists/jsr378-experts/archive. He is also part of the following expert groups: JSR 362: Portlet Specification 3.0, JSR 372: JavaServer Faces (JSF 2.3) Specification, and JSR 371: Model-View-Controller (MVC 1.0) Specification. He participates actively in the Portlet 3.0 expert group (JSR 362) (https://java.net/projects/portletspec3/lists/jsr362-experts/archive). He is a committer to Pluto 3.0, the Portlet 3.0 reference implementation. He has delivered talks on JSR 378, and also done a talk and a podcast about about Portlet 3.0 with spec lead Scott Nicklous (https://www.google.com/search?q=neil+griffin+jsr+362). Neil also participates actively in the JSF 2.3 (JSR 372) expert group, advocating for portlet compatibility (https://java.net/projects/javaserverfaces-spec-public/lists/jsr372-experts/archive).

Most Significant JSR:

  • JSR 365, Contexts and Dependency Injection 2.0: Since its inception, CDI has facilitated innovation in the Java EE Platform, and simplified application development. CDI 2.0 is a major enhancement in this technology which will bring these benefits to applications that are not dependent on Java EE. The CDI 2.0 Expert Group has been making excellent progress towards its ambitious technical goals.
  • JSR 367, Java API for JSON Binding (JSON-B): JSON-B standardises the way how Java objects are mapped to JSON documents. This is a quite young but very important JSR. This year it's made all the way to the public draft. JSON-B is one of the only Java EE 8 JSRs still on track.
  • JSR 364, Broadening JCP Membership: This JSR makes contributing to Java a lot easier, even if one isn't working for a company with a strategic interest in Java or self-employed. JSR 364 now allows more individuals to help the Java Community Process in similar ways as the likes of Apache or Eclipse do. With a relatively small Contributor Agreement instead of long and tedious paperwork, often impossible to handle without a legal department willing to help. Thanks to JSR 364 it should be easier to get more JSRs done where resources by even the biggest corporate members can sometimes reach their limits.

Outstanding Adopt-a-JSR Participant:

  • Faso JUG (Burkina Faso), Constantin Drabo; Faso JUG is one of the youngest African JUGs who enthusiastically leapt onto adopting most of the Java EE JSRs, running several sessions on     JSON-B, JMS, Java EE 7 and others.
  • Dutch JUG: The Dutch Java User Group held a hackathon for JSR 371 (MVC 1.0). As the result of this hackathon the JUG prepared a large feedback list containing question and ideas for improvement. This feedback was very valuable for the EG and helps to improve the specification.
  • Chicago JUG, Josh Juneau and Bob Paulin: Josh and Bob have been leading the Chicago Java User Group (CJUG) Adopt-A-JSR efforts. Josh has been advocating our membership to review and adopt the new Java EE 8 specs. Each Adopt-A-JSR meeting at CJUG Josh deep dives into a JSR by providing an overview of the spec, where to get the source, building the source, as well as some code examples. Josh's step by step approach lowers the barrier of entry for developers not used to working on bleeding edge code. Josh has also been an advocate for the JCP through the Java EE Guardians group using a data driven approach to citing his concerns with Java EE 8. Josh has been steadfast in his work to get the community more involved in the JCP and specifically the Adopt-A-JSR program. Bob has also made great contributions towards Adopt-a-JSR program with leading the Chicago JUG efforts around JDK 9.

Java Community Process (JCP) version 2.10 with a Focus on Broadening JCP Membership

As part of the JCP.Next effort, the third JSR to be released as part of the JCP program reforms, JSR 364, Broadening JCP Membership, will take effect as JCP 2.10. The first in the effort was JSR 348, which increased JSR Expert Group transparency, took effect as JCP 2.8 in 2011. The second in the effort was JSR 355, EC Merge, which merged the two Executive Committees into one, took effect in 2012, and was finished being implemented in 2013. The EC serves as the Expert Group for these efforts.  EC members guide the evolution of the Java technologies by approving and voting on all technology proposals (Java Specification Requests, or JSRs). They are also responsible for defining the JCP's rules of governance and the legal agreement between members and the organization. They provide guidance to the Program Management Office (PMO) and they represent the interests of the JCP to the broader community.


As of 12 May, JCP 2.10 is in effect.  Heather VanCura, Director of the Program Management Office (PMO) served as Specification Lead for JSR 364 and the Executive Committee served as the Expert Group. We are excited to introduce the latest version of the JCP program to the community. In 2014, the EC started working group meetings around the participation of Individual Java developers interested in contributing through the JCP program. We decided to initiate JSR 364 to broaden JCP membership by defining new membership classes, changing existing membership categories, enabling participation by the community, while at the same time eliminating barriers to participation and ensuring the appropriate Intellectual Property commitments were in place from JCP Members.  We think the community will be empowered to increase their participation in the JCP program.


JCP 2.10 includes the following updates designed to eliminate barriers to membership in the JCP Program and ensure that participation in the JCP Program is covered by an appropriate agreement.

  • Process definitions added to JCP Process Document.
  • Introduce new membership levels to the JCP Program - Associate (no employer signature required), Partner, Full Memberships. See workflow chart and membership page.
  • Implement support for new membership levels, including Electronic Signatures.
  • Change in Maintenance process timing - flexibility in review times, length of ballot.
  • Eliminate all membership fees.
  • Add Contributor Role to JSR Expert Groups - Associate and Full Members can serve as Contributors on Expert Groups.
  • Changes to Spec must be received at least 10 days prior to end of Public Review period and published at least 7 days prior to end of Review.
  • At Final Release and Maintenance Release, Spec Leads and Maintenance Leads must state whether they anticipate further changes through (additional) Maintenance Releases.
  • Modify JCP EC Elections process to add Associate Seats and flexibility in timing of Elections.
  • Add Evaluation Checklist for Process Change JSRs.
  • Transition period for the EC from JCP 2.9 to JCP 2.10.


For more information regarding the new version of the JCP Program, please refer to the JCP 2.10 Process Document and the JCP Participation Page, including a Process Flow chart and Participation Roles chart.

Congrats to the JCP 2015 Annual Award Winners

Congratulations to the winners of the 13th Annual JCP Program Awards! The winners are posted on JCP.org, where you can read the nomination text and more information about the awards and all of the esteemed nominees.  The community gets together every year during JavaOne to congratulate the nominees at the annual JCP Community Party--this year the JCP party was held at the  the Hilton San Francisco, Cityscape (top of the Hilton Hotel in Union Square), overlooking the San Francisco Bay with panoramic views of the Golden Gate and East Bay bridges.  There were a plethora of networking opportunities, food, cake, drinks, the NullPointers aka the Java Community Band, Duke photo opportunities, door prizes, and a raffle.

This year there were four award categories (added a new awards category for Adopt-a-JSR program participants): Member of the Year, Outstanding Spec Lead, Most Significant JSR, and Outstanding Adopt-a-JSR Participant.  Many community members submitted nominations, and the JCP Executive Committee voted to determine the winners of the awards.  

The room was full of good cheer, playful humor, a music band of Java developers, and enthusiastic appreciation of much that has been accomplished on behalf of Java technology in the previous year.

The winners in their respective categories for the 2015 JCP Annual Awards::

JCP Member/Participant of the Year: Adam Bien

Outstanding Spec Lead: Anatole Tresch

Most Significant JSR:  JSR 363, Units of Measurement API

Outstanding Adopt-a-JSR Participant: Raj Hegde, JUG Chennai

Congratulations again to all of the JCP Program Award Nominees and Winners, as well as the attendees of the annual JCP party-- the Java Community (YOU) make the party!

The 2015 Java Community Process (JCP) program Executive Committee (EC) nominations period has closed. The ballot will not open until Tuesday, 10 November, but the nomination materials for all of the candidates have been posted on JCP.org. This year we decided to allow the community to have a bit more time to get to know the candidates - we have extended the time between the nominations period and the opening of the ballot.  To that end, we will have a 'Meet the Candidates' meeting during the week of JavaOne in San Francisco, CA USA on Sunday 25 October at 6:30 pm as part of User Group Sunday in Moscone South (this is also known as the Public JCP EC Meeting) and will include some tasty beverages to get the conversation started, read beer ;).
