There might have been some discussion at some point, but as far as I
know, there have never been any plans recently (last 3-4 years) to
bundle a third party native crypto provider into JDK.
Our current recommendation is to use the PKCS11 provider wrapper
mechanism found in JDKs 1.5 and above. In JSSE, the ECC ciphersuites
are enabled once a ECC impl is found.
If I can keep my head down long enough, we're still planning to do a
Java ECC impl in the SunJCE provider.
Hope this helps.
