JDK 9 EA Build 159 and JDK 8u152 is available on java.net

Rory O'Donnell Oracle, Dublin Ireland

Hi Alan,

JDK 8u152 Early Access b01 is available on java.net

JDK 9 Early Access  b159  is available on java.net, summary of  changes are listed here .

There have been a number of fixes to bugs reported by Open Source projects since the last availability email  :
  • b159 - JDK-8175261 : Per-protocol cache setting not working for JAR URLConnection
  • b158 - JDK-8173028 : Incorrect processing of supplementary-plane characters in text fields
  • b158 - JDK-8172967 : [macosx] Exception while working with layout for text containing unmappable character
  • b158 - JDK-8173804 : javadoc throws UnsupportedOperationException: should not happen
  • b157 - JDK-8174073 : NPE caused by @link reference to class
  • b156 - JDK-8172726 : ForkJoin common pool retains a reference to the thread context class loader

The following changeset is included in jdk-9+158:

If you have a user-defined Policy implementation that grants FilePermission on ${user.dir}/-, reading a file in the current directory using its base name will fail.  Still the same solution: Ensure that the path used in permission granting has the same style as the one how you access the file.

Setting -Djdk.security.filePermCompat=true will take you back to the jdk-9+140 behavior.
Setting -Djdk.io.permissionsUseCanonicalPath=true will take you back to the jdk8 behavior.
Feedback is welcome on [hidden email]
