// corrected

The following JEP with scope "SE" has been proposed to target JDK 22:

  454: Foreign Function & Memory API

  Summary: Introduce an API by which Java programs can interoperate with
  code and data outside of the Java runtime.  By efficiently invoking
  foreign functions (i.e., code outside the JVM), and by safely accessing
  foreign memory (i.e., memory not managed by the JVM), the API enables
  Java programs to call native libraries and process native data without
  the brittleness and danger of JNI.

The announced deadline for feedback to jdk-dev is Wed 11 Oct 23:59 UTC:


If there are no unresolved objections at that time, then the JEP will be moved
to the Targeted state, indicating that the feature is expected to appear in
the specified release of the JDK Project.  For more information about states,
see the JEP Process document:
