Issue Description
JDK-8064330

SHA224 removed from the default support list if SunMSCAPI enabled


SunJSSE allows SHA224 as an available signature and hash algorithm for TLS 1.2 connections. However, the current implementation of SunMSCAPI does not support SHA224 yet. This can cause problems if SHA224 and SunMSCAPI private keys are used at the same time.

To mitigate the problem, we remove SHA224 from the default support list if SunMSCAPI is enabled.

Issue Description
JDK-8089681

Fixed memory leak when Java objects are passed into JavaScript


The bug fix for JDK-8089861, which was first integrated in JDK 8u102, fixes a memory leak when Java objects are passed into JavaScript. Prior to JDK 8u102, the WebView JavaScript runtime held a strong reference to such bound objects, which prevented them from being garbage collected. After the fix for JDK-8089861, the WebView JavaScript runtime uses weak references to refer to bound Java objects. The specification was updated to make it clear that this is the intended behavior.

Applications which rely on the previously unspecified behavior might be affected by the updated behavior if the application does not hold a strong reference to an object passed to JavaScript. In such case, the Java object might be garbage collected prematurely. The solution is to modify the application to hold a strong reference in Java code for objects that should remain live after being passed into JavaScript.

Issue Description
JDK-6483657

MSCAPI KeyStore can handle same named certificates


Java SE KeyStore does not allow certificates that have the same aliases. http://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/api/java/security/KeyStore.html

However, on Windows, multiple certificates stored in one keystore are allowed to have non-unique friendly names.

The fix for JDK-6483657 makes it possible to operate on such non-uniquely named certificates through the Java API by artificially making the visible aliases unique.

Please note, this fix does not enable creating same-named certificates with the Java API. It only allows you to deal with same-named certificates that were added to the keystore by 3rd party tools.

It is still recommended that your design not use multiple certificates with the same name. In particular, the following sentence will not be removed from the Java documentation: "In order to avoid problems, it is recommended not to use aliases in a KeyStore that only differ in case." http://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/api/java/security/KeyStore.html

Issue Description
JDK-8138745

New JVM Options: ExitOnOutOfMemoryError and CrashOnOutOfMemoryError


Two new JVM flags have been added:

ExitOnOutOfMemoryError When you enable this option, the JVM exits on the first occurrence of an out-of-memory error. It can be used if you prefer restarting an instance of the JVM rather than handling out of memory errors.

CrashOnOutOfMemoryError If this option is enabled, when an out-of-memory error occurs, the JVM crashes and produces text and binary crash files (if core files are enabled).
