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

The JCP 2015 Executive Committee Nominees & Meeting

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 ;).

UGF11076    JCP Meet the Executive Committee: Main Room in Moscone South, 6:30 PM  -  7:30 PM

The EC has a total of 25 members - 16 Ratified Seats, 8 Elected Seats and one permanent seat held by Oracle. This year there are 8 Ratified seats and 3 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 - 8 Candidates: Credit Suisse, Ericsson, Fujitsu, HP, Intel, Red Hat, SouJava, IBM. 

ELECTED - 6 Candidates (for 3 open seats): Eclipse, Jelastic, Jokl Technologies, London Java Community, Tomitribe, Twitter.

Please join us on next week to meet the candidates! If you are not attending JavaOne 2015 (and I highly recommend that you do - check out the other JCP related activities at JavaOne, including the Hackergarten), we will also host a teleconference with the candidates are Thursday, 6 November 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 2015 EC Election ballot will open on 10 November for JCP Members to cast their votes, which will determine the JCP EC Members for the 2015-2016 term. The ballot will remain open until 23 November at midnight PST, and the results of the election will be published on 24 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 2015 Award Nominees


Congratulations to the nominees of the 13th 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, 26 October, 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 2015 are....

Member/Participant of the Year:

  • Arjan Tijms (Zeef): Arjan has been very active and provides great input into many expert groups including Java EE, JSF and Java EE Security. He also actively evangelizes Java EE. He is a great example of what we should expect from an individual in the JCP and deserves to be recognized.
  • Adam Bien: Adam has consistently been part of key Java EE JSRs and consistently helps evangelize them in the community. In fact it would not be inaccurate to say that Adam is the highest profile evangelist for Java EE and the JCP. We should recognize Adam for his continued contributions.
  • Ivar Grimstad: Ivar is a newcomer to the JCP but is already leaving his mark. Most notably as a member of the MVC specification he has been putting a lot of effort towards evangelizing it in addition to Java EE generally. We should encourage Ivar by recognizing his efforts.
  • David Blevins (Tomitribe): David has long been a strong supporter of the JCP in many Java EE related JSRs and continues his sincere hard work. He has also long been a strong advocate of Java EE in the community. We should recognize David for his contributions.
  • Alex Soto: Alex has jumped into the JSON-P EG and in a few weeks, he became the most active (non Oracle) EG member for this JSR. He has also contributed part of the RI. Alex also does a lot of evangelism for 'his' JSR (JUGs, Devoxx, JavaOne, etc.).

Outstanding Spec Lead: 

  • Anatole Tresch: Anatole has successfully seen the Money & Currency API, JSR 354, to completion. In doing so, he has collaborated extensively with his Expert Group members as well as the broader Java community by actively participating in many hack days and hackergartens around the word, and speaking at numerous developer conferences.
  • Manfred Riem and Santiago Pericas-Geertsen: Despite the resource and scheduling challenges in Java EE 8 JSRs, Santiago and Manfred have made steady progress in the JSR 370, MVC 1.0 specification. They have also successfully engaged a number of folks from the community in the specification and RI.
  • Antoine Sabot-Durand: Antoine has made solid and fast progress in the key CDI specification. He has an ambitious set of technical goals, runs an open community and operates extremely transparently. We should recognize Antoine as a measure of encouragement. 
  • Greg Luck, Brian Oliver and Cameron Purdy: After an extended development process, Greg, Brian and Cameron successfully led JSR 107, JCACHE - Java Temporary Caching API, to completion and in the year since final release have five compatible implementations listed on JCP.org: https://jcp.org/aboutJava/communityprocess/implementations/jsr107/index.html.

Most Significant JSR:

  • JSR 365, Contexts and Dependency Injection (CDI) 2: CDI has long been a key enabler for Java EE and an important specification to the community. CDI 2 is a very timely major investment in the specification. The CDI 2 specification is also moving steadily forward with it's ambitious technical goals in a completely transparent fashion.
  • JSR 371, Model View Controller (MVC) 1.0: MVC is attempting to standardize a very mature space with strong non-standard competitors. The specification also needs to contend with the strong JSF ecosystem. So far the spec leads have done a great job of creating traction behind the specification and community excitement. MVC 1.0  Give us a action based MVC based on REST, is so helpful and easy to learn. This is the end of JSF vs Spring MVC battle. Now we'll have two MVC frameworks, standards and both are great.
  • JSR 363, Units of Measurement API: It's the first JSR targeted to help with the Internet of Things, tackling sensor readings from edge devices and measurements in a standard way. Made to work on multiple environments, both Java ME 8 Embedded and Java SE makes it versatile across a large number of platforms and devices. JSR 363 is also the first and so far only JSR other than the core Java ME 8 JSR 361 (MEEP) utilizing optionality and modularity towards both a minimal footprint on very small devices and a Java 9 / Jigsaw compliant future.
  • JSR 354, Money and Currency API: As one of the few "domain driven" JSRs it helped solve problems like consistent monetary representation, rounding or formatting amounts in areas that had long been unresolved by the JDK. As well as exchange rate providers for the most important institutions making rates available or specialized FX providers that are now able to offer their rates and services in a standard compliant manner. Most importantly, JSR 354 seems the only JSR so far to offer a dual-platform RI for Java 8 and older versions at the same time when it went Final. 

Outstanding Adopt-a-JSR Participant:

  • Josh Juneau/Chicago JUG: Josh has done a great job engaging with Java EE 8 specifications and evangelizing the Adopt-a-JSR program itself. This is both within the Chicago JUG but also in the broader community. His efforts should be recognized as encouragement to him and others. 
  • Olena Syrota and Oleg Tsal-Tsalko/Ukraine JUG: Contributing to JSR 367 test code-base (https://github.com/olegts/jsonb-spec), promoting ‘Adopt a JSR’ and JSON-B spec at JUG UA meetings (http://jug.ua/2015/04/json-binding/) and also at JavaDay Lviv conference (http://www.slideshare.net/olegtsaltsalko9/jsonb-spec).
  • Anakar Parida/JUG Hyderabad: Anakar helped through Adopt-a-JSR with JSR 363 and related Units of Measurement projects. Especially UoM-Tools to import and sync Unit data like CLDR (in this case helping apply JSR 353/374 JSON-P he also adopted these 2 JSRs) or a Fitbit client for Units of Measurement utilizing the Agorava Project and with it CDI, JAX-RS, JSON and other standards like OAuth. 
  • Rajmahendra Hegde/JUG Chennai: JUG Chennai been the first JUG from India to Adopt-a-JSR and have been contributing in the program as a Community over the last four years. They've been part of Adopt Java EE 7, Java Money and Currency and Unit of Measurement JSR. They also serve as Expert Group Members in JSR 354, Money and Currency API, JSR 363, Units of Measurement API and JSR 365, Contexts and Dependency Injection for Java 2.0. Apart from core JSR contribution, the Chennai JUG also participates in regular JSR review program, Hackergartens and contributed to many open source projects.

Join the JCP at JavaOne 2013!

We published a new article on JCP.org this week, detailing some highlights of the JCP related events and happenings during the week of JavaOne, San Francisco (there's still time to register).  Learn what's happening with the JCP program, JCP.Next, the Adopt-a-JSR program, meet the 11th Annual JCP Award nominees and potential new JCP Executive Committee (EC) members (remember all ratified and elected terms expire this year so it will be an exciting election in 2013). As I mentioned, these are just the highlights--I'll be posting a more complete list of conference sessions as we get closer to JavaOne.

There will be plenty of opportunities on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday during JavaOne 2013. We will start with the public JCP EC/Community Meeting on Sunday, and the annual JCP party on Monday evening at the top of the Hilton Hotel (CityScape room)--we will also announce the winners of the annual awards at the party--see below for details.   New this year... we will be holding some Meet the Expert sessions in the OTN Lounge (2:30-3:00 pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday--stop by to say hello!) and hosting a Meet and Greet for JCP ‪affectionado‬s on Wednesday afternoon in the Hilton.

JavaOne pictures and Community Commentary on JCP Awards

We posted some pictures from JCP related events at JavaOne 2012 on the JCP Facebook page today.  The 2012 JCP Program Award winners and some of the nominees responded to the community recognition of their achievements during some of the JCP events last week.    


“Our job on the EC is to balance the need of innovation – so we don’t standardize too early, or too late. We try to find that sweet spot that makes innovation and standardization work together, and not against each other.”

- Ben Evans, CEO of jClarity and Executive Committee (EC) representative of the London Java Community, 2012 JCP Member/Participant of the Year Winner


“SouJava has been evangelizing the Java platform, promoting the Java ecosystem in Brazil, and contributing to JSRs for several years. It’s very gratifying to have our work recognized, on behalf of many developers and Java User Groups around the world. This really is the work of a large group of people, represented by the few that can be here tonight.”

- Michael Santos, representative of SouJava, 2012 JCP Member/Participant of the Year Winner

"In the last years Credit Suisse has contributed to the development of Java EE specifications through participation in many customer advisory boards, through statements of requirements for extensions to the core Java related products in use, and active participation in JSRs. Winning the JCP Outstanding Spec Lead Award 2012 is very encouraging for our engagement and also demonstrates the level of expertise and commitment to drive the evolution of Java. Victor Grazi is happy and honored to receive this award."

- Susanne Cech Previtali, Executive Committee (EC) representative of Credit Suisse, accepting award for 2012 JCP Outstanding Spec Lead Winner

"Managing a JSR is difficult. There are so many decisions to be made and so many good and varied opinions, you never really know if you have decided correctly. The key to success is transparency and collaboration. I am truly humbled by receiving this award, there are so many other active JSRs.” Victor added that going forward in the JCP EC, they would like to simplify and open the process of participation – being addressed in the JCP.Next initiative of the JCP EC. "We would also like to encourage the engagement of universities, professors and students – as an important part of the Java community. While innovation is the lifeblood of our community and industry, without strong standards and compatibility requirements, we all end up in a maze of technology where everything is slightly different and doesn’t quite work with everything else."

Victo Grazi, Executive Committee (EC) representative of Credit Suisse, 2012 JCP Outstanding Spec Lead Winner


“I am very pleased, of course, to accept this award, but the credit really should go to all of those who have participated in the work of the JCP, while pushing for changes in the way it operates.  JCP.Next represents three JSRs. The first two are done, but the final step, JSR 358, is the complicated one, and it will bring in the lawyers. Just to give you an idea of what we’re dealing with, it affects licensing, intellectual property, patents, implementations not based on the Reference Implementation (RI), the role of the RI, compatibility policy, possible changes to the Technical Compatibility Kit (TCK), transparency, where do individuals fit in, open source, and more.”

- Patrick Curran, JCP Chair, Spec Lead on JCP.Next JSRs (JSR 348, JSR 355 and JSR 358), 2012 JCP Most Significant JSR Winner


“I’m especially glad to see the JCP community recognize JCP.Next for its importance. The governance work it represents is KEY to moving the Java platform forward and the success of the technology.”

- John Rizzo, Executive Committee (EC) representative of Aplix Corporation, JSR Expert Group Member

“I am deeply honored to be nominated. I had the privilege to receive two awards on behalf of Expert Groups and Spec Leads two years ago. But this time, I am nominated personally, which values my own contribution to the JCP, and of course, participation in JSRs and the EC work. I’m a fan of Agile Principles and Values Working. Being an Agile Coach and Consultant, I use it for some of the biggest EC Member companies and projects. It fuels my ability to help the JCP become more agile, lean and transparent as part of the JCP.Next effort.”

- Werner Keil, Individual Executive Committee (EC) Member, a 2012 JCP Member/Participant of the Year Nominee, JSR Expert Group Member


“The JCP ever has been some kind of institution for me,” Markus said. “If in technical doubt, I go there, look for the specifications of the implementation I work with at the moment and verify what I had observed. Since the beginning of my Java journey more than 12 years back now, I always had a strong relationship with the JCP. Shaping the future of a technology by joining the JCP – giving feedback and contributing to the road ahead through individual JSRs – that brings you to a whole new level.”

Calling himself, “the new kid on the block,” he explained that for years he was afraid to join the JCP and contribute. But in reality, “Every single one of the big names I meet from the different Expert Groups is a nice person. People you can actually work with,” he says. “And nobody blames you for things you don't know. As long as you are committed and bring what is worth the most: passion, experiences and the desire to make a difference.”


- Markus Eisele, a 2012 JCP Member of the Year Nominee, JSR Expert Group Member

Congratulations again to all of the nominees and winners of the JCP Program Awards.  Next year, we will add another award for the group of JUG members (not an entire JUG) that makes the best contribution to the Adopt-a-JSR program.  Let us know if you have other suggestions or improvements.
