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

  459: String Templates (Second Preview)

    Summary: Enhance the Java programming language with string
    templates. String templates complement Java's existing string literals
    and text blocks by coupling literal text with embedded expressions and
    template processors to produce specialized results. This is a preview
    language feature and API.

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
