Project Coin: JSR Filed!

Keeping with the plan of Plan B for JDK 7 and 8, a Java Specification Request (JSR) proposal has been submitted to the JCP covering the language features explored by Project Coin. The proposal for Small Language Changes to Enhance Productivity is now being considered by the relevant JCP Executive Committee under an approval ballot which runs for two weeks. This proposal is one of four proposals submitted to the JCP to cover the full Plan B roadmap.

I'm looking forward to working with veterans of Project Coin and other expert group members to finish specifying, implementing, and testing the language changes to complete getting them into the platform.

Joe,

I noticed that the jsr for java 8 has project coin features as TBD. Will there be another coin phase to identify potential candidates or does TBD amount to collection literals that were suppose to be in the java 7?

@jj

We anticipate another round of Coin selections for JDK 8; so while collection literals would be a strong contender, they "would then be reconsidered in the context of other language changes being planned for JDK 8" (http://blogs.sun.com/darcy/entry/project_coin_jdk_7_plan).

However, before more details of the Coin features for JDK 8 are worked out, I'll be focusing on getting the Coin features in JDK 7 completed!
