For example, New Security property to control crypto policy This release introduces a new feature whereby the JCE jurisdiction policy files used by the JDK can be controlled via a new Security property.In older releases, JCE jurisdiction files had to be downloaded and installed separately to allow unlimited cryptography to be used by the JDK.Invalid Key Exception: DSA key must be at most 1024 bits Improve javadoc generation The Javadoc Standard Doclet documentation has been enhanced to specify that it doesn't validate the content of documentation comments for conformance, nor does it attempt to correct any errors in documentation comments.See the Conformance section in the Doclet documentation.The Default timeouts have changed for FTP URL handler Timeouts used by the FTP URL protocol handler have been changed from infinite to 5 minutes.This will result in an IOException from connect and read operations if the FTP server is unresponsive.If the value of this property is "true", the SUN provider will return a DSA Key Pair Generator object which implements the java.security.interfaces. This legacy implementation will use the same default value as specified by the javadoc in the interface.
Note: On Solaris, it's recommended that you remove the old SVR4 packages before installing the new JDK updates.
They will be patched only if the end user has them installed on the system.
link above is to the Solaris OS Install Directions for the JDK.
A new system property has been introduced that allows users to configure the default key size used by the JDK provider implementations of Key Pair Generator and Algorithm Parameter Generator.
This property is named "jdk.security.default Key Size" and the value of this property is a list of comma-separated entries.
