Please either complete - or else remove - the emphatic cross-references from
15.28 Constant Expression into the rest of the JLS.
The least incomplete cross-reference I've found appears at:
Quoting/ paraphrasing/ plagiarising that, I'd say ...
In addition to mentioning the effects on assignment conversion (5.2), case
labels of switch statements (14.10), and the FP-strictness of an expression
(15.4), this section could/should also mention at least four more effects:
the determination of the first active use of a class (12.4.1)
the ability of a while, do or for statement to complete normally (14.20)
the type of a conditional expression (15.25)
the rules that determine definite un/assignment (16)
Including 15.4 without mentioning 15.25 is especially treacherous: you have to
think to search in the chapter beyond the last mention cited.
Thanks in advance.
