      Description

      Summary

      Mark the APIs in com.sun.javadoc API for removal.

      Problem

      The com.sun.javadoc API has been superceded by the jdk.javadoc API, and is no longer being updated for new language features.

      Solution

      The API has already been deprecated in JDK 9. In JDK 11, the API should be marked for removal.

      Specification

      The specification with the removal changes are attached for reference it is available here: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~ksrini/8194651/specdiff.out/overview-summary.html
