Description
From JEP 119 (http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/119)

"Provide an implementation of the javax.lang.model.* API backed by core reflection rather than by javac. In other words, provide an alternate API to access and process the reflective information about loaded classes provided by core reflection."

Comments
As addressed in JDK 8, this feature is only a sample / demo so it does not include tests.
