Just a brief comment on this question. We do hope to have EA builds
really soon with a first cut of what is in this JEP. Most of what is
proposed in the JEP is already in the jigsaw/m2 forest in early form so
if you build that forest then it allows for some early testing. At this
point in time then the only things for this JEP that aren't in the
jigsaw/m2 forest are the removal of the extension mechanism and the
"jrt" file system provider (there is "jimage" file system provider in
the current forest that has to evolve into the "jrt" file system
provider -- more on that item soon).
