15th JCP Annual Awards Winners Announced

Nathan Tse
Program Manager Intern


Congratulations to all the nominees for their hard work and dedications to the Java community.

Here is the recap of winners that were announced at the annual JCP Party during JavaOne in San Francisco:

JCP Member/Participant of the Year - Otávio Gonçalves de Santana

Otávio is a very active JCP member. He is an active Expert Group member for 6 JSRs (JSR 354, JSR 363, JSR 365, JSR 367, JSR 377, JSR 380) and in last year (as has been for more than three years now), has been working with diverse initiatives to promote Java and the JCP.

Outstanding Spec Lead - Antoine Sabot-Durand

Antoine has done a tremendous amount of work and was maybe the most active spec lead. He leads probably the most active Java EE JSR (JSR 365, CDI 2.0), which was being developed at a steady pace, with a lot of improvements, and is now final as scheduled.

Most Significant JSR - JSR 375, Java EE Security API

Java EE Security has been one of the most awaited and critical JSRs in Java EE 8. This JSR brings a unified security model which is easy to understand and used. It builds on previous specifications, which were often complex and hard to use in simple situations.

Outstanding Adopt-a-JSR Participant - Martijn Verburg, London Java Community

Martijn is the most active leader of the London Java Community, which actively supports the Adopt-a-JSR program and has organized events to support Java 9 adoption and the JCP.


Congratulations and thank you to all the winners and nominees. The JCP appreciates everyone’s hard work!
