> Please review the fix for [JDK-8254105](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8254105). The intention of the fix is to allow static members to be declared inside inner classes. The spec allowing this change can be seen at [Local and Nested Static Declarations](http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~gbierman/8246771/8246771-20200928/specs/local-statics-jls.html). This change is part of the [Records JEP](https://openjdk.java.net/jeps/395). The idea is to allow not only records to be defined inside inner classes but also interfaces, enums, static classes and methods.
> PS: the records spec can be accessed here [Record Classes](http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~gbierman/8246771/8246771-20200928/specs/records-jls.html). This patch also adds a test to check the changes in the Records spec to Chapter 13 "Binary Compatibility". I'm OK moving that test to a separate PR.
