Hi All,


JBS report: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8216396

Webrev: HYPERLINK "http://cr.openjdk.java.net/%7Erpatil/8216396/"http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~rpatil/8216396/


As per previous communication from Iris[0], a maintenance review for Java SE 8 is planned. JDK-8216396 focuses on the java.lang.Character specification changes.

The specification is modified to allow the new Japanese Era code point (U+32FF), expected to be assigned in version 12.1 of the Unicode Standard, and to allow currency code points introduced in version 10.0.

Specification changes are covered in this review. A follow up code review will be carried out for implementation changes.
