Issue Description

SunPKCS11 Initialization With NSS When External FIPS Modules Are in Security Modules Database

The SunPKCS11 security provider can now be initialized with NSS when FIPS-enabled external modules are configured in the Security Modules Database (NSSDB). Before this change, when such a library was configured for NSS in non-FIPS mode, the SunPKCS11 provider would throw a RuntimeException with the message "FIPS flag set for non-internal module".

This change allows the JDK to work properly with recent NSS releases in GNU/Linux operating systems when the system-wide FIPS policy is turned on.


Issue Description

JDK Flight Recorder Integrated to OpenJDK 8u

OpenJDK 8u now contains the backport of JEP 328: Flight Recorder ( from later versions of OpenJDK.

JFR is a low-overhead framework to collect and provide data helpful to troubleshoot the performance of the OpenJDK runtime and of Java applications. It consists of a new API to define custom events under the jdk.jfr namespace and a JMX interface to interact with the framework. The recording can also be initiated with the application startup using the -XX:+FlightRecorder flag or via jcmd. JFR replaces the +XX:EnableTracing feature introduced in JEP 167 providing a more efficient way to retrieve the same information. For compatibility reason +XX:EnableTracing is still accepted, however no data will be printed.

JFR It is not built by default. Downstream distributions need to pass the --enable-jfr flag at configure time.


Issue Description

JFR Start Failure After AppCDS Archive Created with JFR StartFlightRecording

JFR will be disabled with a warning message if it is enabled during CDS dumping. The user will see the following warning message:

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM warning: JFR will be disabled during CDS dumping 
if JFR is enabled during CDS dumping such as in the following command line:

$java -Xshare:dump -XX:StartFlightRecording=dumponexit=true
