I’ve published a draft JEP [1] to cover the work needed to limit
speculative execution for Java applications.

This JEP covers the initial work to make use of new C++ compiler
options to limit speculative execution in native code in the
JDK. Some changes related to this work have been through a first
round of review [2]. The changes required to limit speculative
execution in code generated by the JVM is in development, in
collaboration with the OpenJDK Vulnerability Group, and details
will be added to the JEP as the work progresses.
