sebastian: as the technical owner of Fennec, do you agree with removing Java Addons from Fennec?
James, Barbara, Maria -- flagging product people in case there's some product use case I don't know about, past, present, or future. Mike -- flagging you since this could be relevant to distributions. Max -- flagging you since this would simplify the transition to the Gradle build system.
These APIs aren't used in distros.

Thanks for the ni, I agree and basically we're not dealing with Addons on Fennec so I have no concern about this.

Clearing NI from additional product folks. Sorry for the noise, Barbara and Maria!

I need an MDN administrator to remove https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/Firefox_for_Android/API/JavaAddonManager.jsm. I've already removed the link from https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/Firefox_for_Android/API. Since this API has never gained traction, I don't think we need to go to the effort of deprecating it on MDN. (We're not doing that in the product itself.)
