This is a tracking bug. There may be code left from the EDR phase of JSR 292 which is no longer relevant to the final specification. This code should be removed if no longer relevant, or relegated to some special experimental category.
Features to remove from langtools, hotspot, and jdk include:
- allowTransitionalJSR292 flag (various places)
- deprecated methods
- registerBootstrapMethod and related "Global BSM" functionality
