Glad to hear the OCA process did work out for you :)

When I first read about your work I immediatly thought "what a cool
enhancement" :)
I don't have anything to add from the technical side, I just wanted
express my appreciation.
Thanks for working on this feature, I hope it will make it into the JDK.

Regards, Clemens
