Project Amber

The goal of Project Amber is to explore and incubate smaller, productivity-oriented Java language features that have been accepted as candidate JEPs under the OpenJDK JEP process. This Project is sponsored by the Compiler Group.

Most Project Amber features go through at least one round of Preview before becoming an official part of Java SE. See JEP 12 for an explanation of the Preview process. For a given feature, there are separate JEPs for each round of preview and for final standardization. This page links only to the most recent JEP for a feature. Such JEPs will generally have links to earlier JEPs for the feature, as appropriate.
