RELEASE NOTES

install/install

Issue Description
JDK-8202065

jre/bin/javaw.exe is missing from server-jre for windows since 8u171


Two files, jre/bin/javaw.exe and jre/bin/jabswitch.exe, were not included in 8u171. As a workaround, users who need those files can download the non-server JRE and copy those files from it into the server JRE image.


core-svc/debugger

Issue Description
JDK-8197943

Unable to use the JDWP API in JDK 8 to debug JDK >=9


The implementation of VirtualMachineImpl.canGetInstanceInfo() has been corrected, so it is now able to see JDK JVMs >= JDK 9.

This correction allows certain debugger agents to operate correctly without any action required from a user (developer).


core-libs/javax.naming

Issue Description
JDK-8211107

LDAPS Communication Failure


Application code using LDAPS with a socket connect timeout that is <= 0 ( the default value ), may encounter an exception when establishing the connection.

The top most frames from Exception stack traces of applications encountering such issues might resemble the following:

` javax.naming.ServiceUnavailableException: <server:port>; socket closed at com.sun.jndi.ldap.Connection.readReply(Unknown Source)<br /> at com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapClient.ldapBind(Unknown Source) ... `
