OpenJDK Project JEPs (JDK Enhancement Proposals)

Built using JEPMap by @chriswhocodes. Last updated: 2021-07-22
The algorithm for generating this page is:
  1. Parse the JEP pages at https://openjdk.java.net/jeps
  2. For each Project listed at https://openjdk.java.net/projects/
    1. Parse the project page and wiki page looking for JEP URLs
    2. Check if the JEP page discussion mailing list name matches a Project
    3. Check if the JEP page text links to a Project
    4. Map JEP 'Release' tag back to a JDK (technically a JDK is not a Project but I think it's useful to list the JEPs targeted to a JDK)
    5. Remove mappings found in the banlist
Autogeneration can produce false positives! Please report issues at https://github.com/chriswhocodes/JEPMap/issues

Annotations Pipeline 2.0

The goal of this Project is to provide a venue to explore improvements to the overall handling of annotations within the javac compilation pipeline. The Project will be entirely focused on improving the implementation of the existing language and API specification and is not intended as a venue to change or enhance these specifications.

JEPS

JEP 217: Annotations Pipeline 2.0
[Release: 9] [Status: Closed / Delivered] [Updated: 2016/07/12]

Build Infrastructure

This Project was sponsored by the Build Group, but has now been dissolved.

JEPS

JEP 284: New HotSpot Build System
[Release: 9] [Status: Closed / Delivered] [Updated: 2017/01/20]

Code Tools

The goal of this Project is to provide tools of use to developers who work on the OpenJDK code base. Such tools currently include test tools and Mercurial extensions; it is envisaged that additional tools will be added over time, after discussion on the Project's main mailing list and subject to the Project Lead's approval.

Graal

The Graal OpenJDK project grew out of the Maxine VM project. In the context of the Maxine VM, Graal demonstrated that a compiler written in Java (with all its software engineering advantages) could generate highly optimized code without compromising on compile times.

Graphics Rasterizer

Due to encumbrances in the 2D source code (see the 2D Graphics page for more), some of the implementation of the Java 2D API requires open source replacements.

Lambda

JSR 335 (Lambda Expressions for the Java Programming Language) supports programming in a multicore environment by adding closures and related features to the Java language. The JSR has reached its Final Release; these changes to the platform are part of the umbrella JSR 337 and have been integrated into Java SE 8 (modifying the language, JVM, and library specifications).

Port: AArch32

The goal of this Project is to provide a full featured port of OpenJDK on the Linux/AArch32 platoform. AArch32 is the 32-bit sub-architecture within the ARMv8 architecture. The port will be fully compatible with ARMv7 and may support ARMv6 depending on community interest.

Port: AArch64

The goal of this Project is to provide a full-featured and certified version of OpenJDK on the Linux/AArch64 platform which can be integrated into JDK 8. AArch64 is the 64-bit mode of ARMv8; it is a completely new architecture, and is not compatible with the 32-bit ARM instruction set. It is hoped that this project will eventually be able to support operating systems other than GNU/Linux, and welcomes contributors with the necessary expertise.
