After seeing several APIs removed as part of Java 10, Java 11 (JSR 384) looks to remove more APIs. In the recent OpenJDK java-se-spec-experts mailing list post, "JSR 384 (Java SE 11) PFD Specification posted to jcp.org," Iris Clark announced the availability of the Java SE 11 (18.9) Proposed Final Draft Specification. This document lists the different APIs that are being removed as part of Java 11.

"Individual" (class/method) APIs are being removed in addition to the removal of entire modules.
