FC Extension Request
The work on this RFE is part of the overall JEP 274 effort (
). Performance analysis for this JEP found that intrinsifying the newly added method handle abstractions is desirable. Also, most complex method handle combinators have an accompanying implementation in the form of lambda form interpretation and bytecode intrinsification. The work on this RFE is already considerably advanced; it is currently under review (http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/core-libs-dev/2016-June/041839.html
The remaining work will consist in satisfying the reviewers' improvement requests. Risk is low, as no API changes are involved, existing tests cover the functionality well, and performance improvements are likely.
The RFE should be completed by July 8, 2016.
