I am pleased to announce that the enhanced-metadata-spec-discuss list
has been created:
Below is some text summarizing the background and purpose of this list.
Oracle submitted JEPs in 2011 for features which enhance the metadata
declared in, and available to, Java programs:
- Access to Parameter Names at Runtime (JEP 118)
- Repeating Annotations (JEP 120)
These features change the Java language, JVM, and java.* API as part of
the Java SE 8 Platform Umbrella JSR (337) led by Oracle.
Work on specifications for Java SE JSRs may now take place in the
The OpenJDK Compiler Group has sponsored a mailing list,
enhanced-metadata-spec-discuss, for discussion of the design and
specification of these features.
Contributions to the list are licensed for evaluation and comment only.
You can post modified versions of contributions found on the list back
to the list or to other parts of the OpenJDK web site that use the same
terms. Material contributions require the OCA to be signed. Please see
Feature implementation will be discussed on compiler-dev and hosted in
the jdk8/tl forest.
