Bug Fixes

Area: hotspot/runtime_arguments
Synopsis: Improve VM configuration file loading.

This release contains changes to the default implicit loading of the .hotspot_compiler and .hotspotrc file. For existing deployments which rely on .hotspot_compiler (e.g. to exclude a method from hotspot compilation), an unsupported behavioral option has been provided to simulate the old loading behavior.

Command line options to support old behavior:

-XX:Flags=.hotspotrc
will revert to old behavior for .hotspotrc.

-XX:CompileCommandFile=.hotspot_compiler
for the .hotspot_compiler file.

Known Issues


Area: java/jar
Synopsis: Regression - jar command changes file permissions.

Due to a regression, the permissions of any jar file updated with the jar command are changed to read and write by user only. The workaround is to use the chmod command on the affected file to allow access by other and world.

This regression affects the Solaris and other Unix platforms. It does not affect the Windows platform.

See 7175845.

REGRESSION - 6u29 breaks ssl connectivity using TLS_DH_anon_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA

Note: It is strongly encouraged that applications using JSSE (SSL/TLS) be upgraded to this release to have access to the latest changes that address this recent vulnerability: Under certain circumstances, Java SE 6u29 will incorrectly throw an IndexOutOfBoundsException or send an extra SSL/TLS packet.

 


Changes in 1.4.2_34

The full internal version number for this update release is 1.4.2_34-b05 (where "b" means "build"). The external version number is 1.4.2_34.

Olson Data 2011g

This release contains Olson time zone data version 2011g. For more information, refer to Timezone Data Versions in the JRE Software .

RMI Registry Issue

A bug in the rmiregistry command included in this release may cause unintended exceptions to be thrown when an RMI server attempts to bind an exported object which includes codebase annotations using the "file:" URL scheme. The RMI servers most likely to be effected are those which are invoked only by RMI clients executing on the same host as the server.

RMI annotates codebase information as part of the serialized state of a remote object reference to assist RMI clients in loading the required classes and interfaces associated with the object at runtime. Exported objects which are looked up in the RMI registry and invoked by RMI clients running on hosts other than the server are usually annotated with codebase URL schemes, such as "http:" or "ftp:" and these should continue to work correctly.

As a workaround, RMI servers can set the java.rmi.server.codebase property to use codebase URLs other than the "file:" scheme for the objects they export.

Bug Fixes

This release contains fixes for security vulnerabilities. For more information, please see Oracle Java SE Critical Patch Update advisory.

Known Issues

Problem with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 use of JFrame.ICONIFIED

A frame can be displayed either minimized or maximized. Iconifying means to show window state of a frame in minimized form. An application developer can use JFrame.ICONIFIED with JFrame.setExtendedState(Frame.ICONIFIED) for frames to be initially iconified. However, on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2, with JDK5.0, JFrame.ICONIFIED fails.

An application developer can use the WM_HINTS window property to specify an initial state for a top-level window (either normal, iconic, or withdrawn). Window managers are supposed to honor the initial state when the window is mapped for the first time.

This problem has been fixed in GNOME 2.2. The problem is not reproducible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3.

Refer to Gnome bug 440691 and to CR 6771532 for further information.

IE 8 Hangs with OBJECT Tag

When an OBJECT tag is used to specify an applet, and the browser does not receive any mouse button events or keyboard events before the browser gets to the point of interpreting (executing) the OBJECT> tag, then IE 8 hangs.

This bug is seen when an html file containing OBJECT tag is specified as a command line parameter while launching IE. For example:

iexplorer.exe file.html In this case, there is no mouse button event between invocation of IE and OBJECT tag execution.

A workaround is to force the user to use a mouse or keyboard before IE8 reaches the tag. For example, if applet.html contains an OBJECT tag, then the following command line invocation hangs the browser:

iexplorer.exe applet.html However, if you specify applet.html in another html file, as follows, then the user is forced to use the keyboard or mouse button, and the hang does not occur: <HTML><BODY><A href="file:applet.html"> _fcksavedurl="file:applet.html"> _fcksavedurl="file:applet.html"> _fcksavedurl="file:applet.html"> _fcksavedurl="file:applet.html"> _fcksavedurl="file:applet.html"> _fcksavedurl="file:applet.html"> _fcksavedurl="file:applet.html"> _fcksavedurl="file:applet.html"> _fcksavedurl="file:applet.html"> _fcksavedurl="file:applet.html"> _fcksavedurl="file:applet.html"> _fcksavedurl="file:applet.html"> _fcksavedurl="file:applet.html"> _fcksavedurl="file:applet.html"> _fcksavedurl="file:applet.html"> _fcksavedurl="file:applet.html"> _fcksavedurl="file:applet.html"> _fcksavedurl="file:applet.html"> click </A> </BODY></HTML>

Refer to CR 6825659 for further information.

Conformance Issue on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (SLES 11)

Java SE 1.4.2 does not conform to specification due to a bug in SLES 11. However, all other functionality in 1.4.2_21 works on SLES 11.

We have filed a P1 (critical) bug 502926 with Novell. Refer also to CR 6831124 for further information.

Online Installer Issue on Windows Vista

After downloading the online installer and launching it, it appears for an instant in the process list in task manager but then it disappears and nothing happens anymore. Refer to CR 6667152 for further information.

Sazanami Mincho Font Issue on Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 5)

When using Sazanami Mincho font (free Japanese True Type font), some of large size Japanese characters are unreadable. Refer to CR 6428762 for further information.

OlsonData 2009a

This release contains Olson time zone data version 2009a. For more information, refer to Timezone Data Versions in the JRE Software .

Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) API behavior Change

The behavior of the JNDI feature to store and retrieve Java objects in an LDAP directory has been slightly modified.

When storing a Java object in an LDAP directory, the location of the object's class file (its codebase) may be specified. Later, when restoring the original object, its codebase along with additional object data is retrieved from the directory and used by the class loader.

An object's codebase is no longer implicitly trusted. Instead, a new system property called com.sun.jndi.ldap.object.trustURLCodebase must explicitly be set to the string value true in order for a codebase to be used. Otherwise, the codebase will be ignored by the class loader when restoring a Java object, and only those class files that appear on the classpath will be recognized.

Auto Update Off

Beginning with this revision, the JRE auto update feature defaults to OFF.

Auto Update behavior may be unpredictable if this revision is co-installed with any other Java SE implementation (Java for Business or Java SE) that does not have the auto update scheduler already turned off (AU-OFF). Results will also be unpredictable if this revision for Java for Business is installed and then subsequently a Java SE Update is installed with auto update turned on (the default for Java SE).

To workaround this problem, ensure that any other Java SE implementation residing on a system has auto update turned off prior to installing this revision or a subsequent revision. Or else, remove any other Java SE implementation before installing this or a subsequent revision.
