      Description

      JNI and JVM TI are linked from java.se module summary page. There is no easy way to navigate to these specs.

      JDK-8191824 proposes to put more javadoc indices to make it easy to search "specifications". Another idea being explored is to add a doc-files listing all specifications to make it easier to navigate.

      In the meantime, this issue suggests to add links to JNI and JVM TI spec in the JDK documentation page (under the Specifications section).

      JNI: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/9/docs/specs/jni/index.html
      JVM TI: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/9/docs/specs/jvmti.html

      They are native interfaces that may not be obvious for developers to go to API specification to find them.
