The following JEP with scope "SE" has been moved to the Candidate state:

  440: Record Patterns

    Summary: Enhance the Java programming language with record patterns
    to deconstruct record values. Record patterns and type patterns can be
    nested to enable a powerful, declarative, and composable form of data
    navigation and processing.

A JEP in the Candidate state is a feature deemed worthy of consideration by
the JDK Project, but with no commitment to deliver the feature in any
particular release of the JDK Project. Later, the JEP may be moved to the
Targeted state, which indicates that the feature is expected to appear in a
specific release of the JDK Project.  For more information about states, see
the JEP Process document:

A JEP with "SE" scope that reaches the Targeted state will be listed in the
Specification of the Java SE Platform JSR which corresponds to the targeted
JDK Project release.

A dashboard that lists JEPs with "SE" scope may be found via a link on this
