JSR 269 MR for Java SE 9, last call for comments
By Darcy-Oracle on Apr 06, 2017
javax.annotation.processingpackages are undergoing maintenance review as part of Java SE 9.
All the planned changes to the JSR 269 API are in JDK 9 build 164, downloadable as an early access binary. Of note new in build 164 is the annotation type
javax.annotation.processing.Generated, meant to be a drop-in replacement for
javax.annotation.Generated since the latter is not in a convenient module.
Please try out your existing annotation processors -- compiling them, running them, etc. -- on JDK 9 and report your experiences, good or bad, to email@example.com.
