That first association with OSI is...

Sometimes I want a express that a static field is unlikely to change, so the VM should consider it has a constant, but it may changed. And because we all live in a threaded world, if the static field is changed I want that all threads that want to read the field value to notice that the value has changed like a volatile field.

As a big enthusiast of both Jigsaw and Lambdas - and as a tech writer who just...
