RFR: JDK-8212780: JEP 343: Packaging Tool Implementation
The initial request for review was sent out on October 23, with a
refresh on November 11.
Since then we have been continuing to fix bugs and add needed
functionality in response to the feedback we have received (full list
Our current plan is:
1.) To publish /jpackage/ EA (Early Access) binaries (built from the
sandbox repository) soon (before end of 2018).
2.) To have JEP 343 targeted and integrated into JDK13 early in 2019.
We are continuing to work through issues targeted to "internal" (meaning
we expect to integrate them into JDK-8200758-branch of the open sandbox
before before the whole branch is merged into OpenJDK).
The list of issues we have pushed to the sandbox since the initial RFR
