The primary goal of the project would be to define APIs that can be efficiently implemented and used on embedded devices. These APIs would be defined in such a way that they could be potentially used with Java ME, although the project would initially focus on the implementation for Java SE.

This seems a worthy project and good to see that the collaboration is 
proposed to be done as a project in OpenJDK.

The Bylaws require that it be supported by at least one Group Lead so I 
would like to offer support for this project with the Core Libraries 
group as sponsor.
