JDK 9 EA Build 170 is available on jdk.java.net

Rory O'Donnell Oracle, Dublin Ireland

Hi Alan,

JDK 9 Early Access
  build 170  is available at the new location : -  jdk.java.net/9/ 

A summary of all the changes in this build are listed here.  

Changes which were introduced since the last availability email that may be of interest :

  • b168 - JDK-8175814: Update default HttpClient protocol version and optional request version
    • related to JEP 110  : HTTP/2 Client.
  • b169 - JDK-8178380 : Module system implementation refresh (5/2017)
    • changes in command line options
  • b170 - JDK-8177153  : LambdaMetafactory has default constructorIncompatible change,
    • release note:  JDK-8180035

New Proposal - Mark Reinhold has asked for comments on the jigsaw-dev mailing list [1]

  • Proposal: Allow illegal reflective access by default in JDK 9
In short, the existing "big kill switch" of the `--permit-illegal-access`
option [1] will become the default behavior of the JDK 9 run-time system,
though without as many warnings.  The current behavior of JDK 9, in which
illegal reflective-access operations from code on the class path are not
permitted, will become the default in a future release.  Nothing will
change at compile time.
