Java and Web Assembly

Hi all,

Are there any current plans to:

   1. Compile Java applications into Web Assembly (.wasm), and
   2. Seamless loading of .wasm files in a Java program?

*1* will allow Java libraries to be used in Node apps and inside the
browser and *2* will allow Java programs to use .wasm libraries (hence C,
Rust, etc. libraries compiled to Web Assembly too).

For 1, there's but I was wondering if there are any plans
to support both of these features officially in OpenJDK and what the
community thinks about these features in general?


Best regards,
