Oracle has previously submitted JEPs 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
I would therefore like to invite the Compiler Group to sponsor mailing
lists for discussion of the design and specification of these features:
1) enhanced-metadata-spec-experts, for discussion by invited experts.
2) enhanced-metadata-spec-observers, for observation and discussion of
the -experts traffic by interested parties.
Contributions to both lists will be licensed under
comment-and-evaluation terms. Anyone making material contributions to
 for more information.
Feature implementation will be discussed on compiler-dev and hosted in
the jdk8/tl forest.
