New proposal for a Java bridge to native APIs

A new Java interface to native APIs, dubbed Project Panama, has been tentatively proposed. At this stage, it's hard to tell if it will go anywhere. What is true is that so far, the Java Native Interface as always been something of a second-class citizen. Although there are other projects such as Java Native Access designed to ease the pain of access to native APIs from Java,  a way to do so from within the standard libraries would surely be welcomed by many.
