the best thing you can do is answer to this thread on jdk-dev mailing list: <http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/jdk-dev/2018-June/001338.html>. The JEP is a candidate, and they’re gathering feedback there. If there’s a lot of community feedback saying people use and depend on Nashorn, it’ll be taken into consideration. Lots of people have already chimed in on that thread already saying they rely on Nashorn. If you can re-post your below messages in that thread, it’d be the best. If you are not subscribed to jdk-dev, you can do so at <http://mail.openjdk.java.net/mailman/listinfo/jdk-dev>.
Paulo, your specific experience of already having tried to replace Nashorn with GraalVM.js might be particularly significant.
