Where can JEP 119 be found?

Thanks for these pointers and providing this implementation. So is this to
say that JEP 119 is/will not be part of JDK 8? Is it considered for being
included in JDK 9 then?
I like the idea of that JEP, because the current distinct APIs at
processing and runtime easily lead to redundancies when dealing with
annotations. E.g. for Hibernate Validator we provide an annotation
processor for compile-time checking of constraints which basically
re-implements logic from the runtime library. So it'd be nice to see JEP
119 as part of the JDK.
