Hi All,


JBS report: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8216546

Webrev: HYPERLINK "http://cr.openjdk.java.net/%7Erpatil/8216546/"http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~rpatil/8216546/


As per previous communication from Iris[0], a maintenance review for Java SE 11 is planned. JDK-8216546 focuses on the java.lang.Character specification changes.

The specification is modified to allow the new Japanese Era code point (U+32FF). This code point is expected to be assigned in version 12.1 of the Unicode Standard.

Specification changes are covered in this review. A follow up code review will be carried out for implementation changes.
