> Hi Tomaz,
> As part of the preparations for JDK 9, Oracle’s engineers have been

> One area of concern involves identifying compatibility problems, such as
> reliance on JDK-internal APIs.
> Our engineers have already prepared guidance on migrating some of the
> more common usage patterns of JDK-internal APIs to supported public
> interfaces. The list is on the OpenJDK wiki [0], along with instructions
> on how to run the jdeps analysis tool yourself .
> As part of the ongoing development of JDK 9, I would like to encourage
> migration from JDK-internal APIs towards the supported Java APIs. I have
> prepared a report for your project wildfly-8.1.0 release  based on the
> jdeps output.
> The report is attached to this e-mail.
> For anything where your migration path is unclear, I would appreciate

> Finding suitable replacements for unsupported interfaces is not always

> 9 development cycle so you can give feedback about new APIs that may be
> needed to facilitate this exercise.
> Thank you in advance for any efforts and feedback helping us make JDK 9
