2018 Star Spec Lead Profile

The Java Community Process (JCP) program applauds the community's Star Spec Leads. These leaders earned this honor through their efficient, prompt, and transparent communication with their Expert Group, the Program Management Office (PMO), and the Executive Committee (EC). They used community web pages, observer aliases, and other tools to communicate with their expert group, the JCP program community, and the public. They kept their Java Specification Requests (JSRs) on schedule by making sure their team stayed focused and felt appreciated. The JCP program congratulates and honors these Star Spec Leads.

Christian Kaltepoth

Christian Kaltepoth is working as a Senior Java Developer for ingenit GmbH & Co. KG in Dortmund, Germany. His passion is around developing business applications based on Java/Jakarta EE technologies. He is a regular open source contributor and involved in projects like Eclipse Krazo, Apache DeltaSpike, PrettyFaces/Rewrite, Togglz and others. Christian is specification lead of the JSR 371 expert group, JSR 380 expert group member, committer in the Eclipse Project for JAX-RS and a frequent speaker at conferences.

Christian studied computer science in Dortmund, Germany. He has been working with Java EE technology for over 14 years and has witnessed the overall evolution of the platform from the EJB 2.1 days to what we have today. Christian is very active in the Java Open Source community. He was a major contributor of the PrettyFaces project, which eventually lead to the improved support for RESTful URLs in JSF 2.0, helped to transfer to JBoss Seam code to the Apache Software Foundation which was the birth of Apache DeltaSpike and created Togglz, which is the most popular feature toggle framework for Java today.

Christian joined the JCP in 2013. He was nominated for the JSR 371 (MVC 1.0) expert group in 2014 and two years later for the JSR 380 (Bean Validation 2.0) expert group. In 2017, he joined Ivar Grimstad as a specification lead for MVC 1.0, which became one of the first JSRs lead by the community. In late 2018 Ivar and Christian received the JCP Annual Award for the 'Outstanding Spec Lead' category. He is actively working on the specification, the reference implementation Eclipse Ozark and the TCK for JSR 371.
