The 20th JCP Annual Awards

The Java Community Process (JCP) program celebrates success. Members of the community nominate worthy participants, Spec Leads and Java Specification Requests (JSRs) in order to cheer on the hard work and creativity that produces ground-breaking results for the community in the Java technology.

The community gets together every year, at JavaOne in Las Vegas this year, to applaud the winners of the JCP Program Awards. This year we have two award categories: JCP Member/Participant of the Year and JCP Spec Lead/JSR of the Year.

With great appreciation, now for the 20th year, the community recognizes the award nominees, listed below, with their nomination justifications. The award results wll be announced at the JCP Community/Java Leaders Reception & Awards at JavaOne in Las Vegas on Wednesday, 19 October 2022.

JCP Member/Participant of the Year
  • Neil Griffin

    Neil Griffin is the spec lead for JSR 378: Portlet 3.0 Bridge for JavaServerTM Faces 2.2 Specification. He was 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 participated actively in the Portlet 3.0 expert group (JSR 362). He was a committer to Pluto 3.0, the Portlet 3.0 reference implementation. Neil led the spec in difficult times and could finish the spec properly.

  • Joe Darcy * Winner *

    JSR 269 maintenance updates are a sizeable fraction of JCP activities at this point, there are two MRs per year, I think it would be worth consideration to nominate Joe Darcy for a JCP Award.

Description of the JCP Award Categories

JCP Member/Participant of the Year - This award recognizes the corporate or individual member (either Member or Participant) who has made the most significant positive impact on the community in the past year. Leadership, investment in the community, and innovation are some of the qualities that EC Members look for in voting for this award.
JCP Spec Lead/JSR of the Year - The role of Spec Lead is not an easy one, and the person who takes that responsibility must be, among other things, technically savvy, able to build consensus in spite of diverse corporate goals, and focused on efficiency and execution. This award recognizes the person who has brought together these qualities the best in the past year, in leading a JSR for the Java community.
