New Features and Changes

Java Packager Tool Enhancements
JDK 8u40 release contains the following enhancements to the Java Packager:

Deprecated APIs
The endorsed-standards override mechanism and the extension mechanism are deprecated and may be removed in future releases. There are no runtime changes. Existing applications using the 'endorsed-standards override' or 'extension' mechanisms are recommended to migrate away from using these mechanisms. To help identify any existing uses of these mechanisms, the -XX:+CheckEndorsedAndExtDirs command-line option is available. It will fail if any of the following conditions is true:

  • -Djava.endorsed.dirs or -Djava.ext.dirs system property is set to alter the default location; or
  • ${java.home}/lib/endorsed directory exists; or
  • ${java.home}/lib/ext contains any JAR files excluding the ones that JDK ships or
  • any platform-specific system-wide extension directory contains any JAR files.

The -XX:+CheckEndorsedAndExtDirs command-line option is supported in JDK 8u40 and later releases.

Multiple JRE Launcher feature Deprecated

The Launch-Time JRE Version Selection or the Multiple JRE Launcher feature is deprecated in JDK 8u40. Visit for further information. Applications that require specific Java versions deployed using this feature must switch to alternate deployment solutions such as Java WebStart.

JJS Tool Page Differences

The Japanese version of the jjs help page is different from the English version. Some of the unsupported options have been removed from the English version of the jjs tool page. The Japanese version of document will be updated in future.

See 8062100 (not public).

For other jjs tool page changes, see Tools Enhancements in JDK 8.

Java SE Tools Updated

Java SE tools have been updated. See Tools Enhancements in JDK 8 for details.

Change in default values for G1HeapWastePercent and G1MixedGCLiveThresholdPercent

The default value for G1HeapWastePercent was changed from 10 to 5 to reduce the need for full GCs. For the same reason the default value for G1MixedGCLiveThresholdPercent was changed from 65 to 85.

Nashorn Enhancements

The new jdk.nashorn.api.scripting.ClassFilter interface enables you to restrict access to specified Java classes from scripts run by a Nashorn script engine. See Restricting Script Access to Specified Java Classes in the Nashorn User's Guide and 8043717 (not public) for more information.

The Nashorn compiler now has static type inference capabilities for local variables and expressions. While JavaScript is hard to analyze statically, Nashorn is able to generate code optimized for specific types.

Nashorn now supports optimistic typing, which complements static type inference. For types that can't be statically inferred, Nashorn will make optimistic assumptions and gradually deoptimize when assumptions turn out to be wrong. To activate this feature use the --optimistic-types=true option. See Nashorn Architecture and Performance Improvements for more information.

Function.prototype.bind and are enhanced to work on everything that can be invoked in Nashorn, such as POJO methods, instances of @FunctionalInterface classes.

Issues with Third party's JCE Providers

The fix for JDK-8023069 (in JDK 8u20) updated both the SunJSSE and and SunJCE providers, including some internal interfaces.

Some third party JCE providers (such as RSA JSAFE) are using some sun.* internal interfaces, and therefore will not work with the updated SunJSSE provider. Such providers will need to be updated in order for them to work with the updated SunJSSE provider.

If you have been impacted by this issue, contact your JCE vendor for an update.

See 8058731.

Message digest algorithms are now enabled by default for SunPKCS11 provider on Solaris

If you are using Solaris 10, a change was made to re-enable operations with MD5, SHA1, and SHA2 through the Solaris Crypto Framework. If you experience a CloneNotSupportedException or PKCS11 error CKR_SAVED_STATE_INVALID message with JDK 8u40, you should verify and apply the following patches or newer versions of them:

  • 150531-02 on sparc
  • 150636-01 on x86

See 8037745.

Troubleshooting Guide Updates for NMT, JMC, and JFR

The Native Memory Tracking (NMT) is a Java Hotspot VM feature that tracks internal memory usage for a HotSpot JVM. Native Memory Tracking can be used to monitor VM internal memory allocations and diagnose VM memory leaks.

VM enhancements page is updated with NMT features. See Java Virtual Machine Enhancements in Java SE 8.

Troubleshooting Guide is updated with NMT features. See Native Memory Tracking.

Troubleshooting Guide is also updated with content for Troubleshooting using Java Mission Control, Debug Memory Leaks using Java Flight Recorder (JFR), and Troubleshooting Performance Issues using JFR.

JavaFX Enhancements

Starting with JDK 8u40 release, JavaFX controls are enhanced to support assistive technologies, meaning that JavaFX controls are now accessible. In addition, a public API is provided to allow developers to write their own accessible controls.

Accessibility support is provided on Windows and Mac OS X platforms and includes:

  • Support for reading JavaFX controls by a screen reader
  • JavaFX controls are traversable using the keyboard
  • Support for a special high-contrast mode that makes controls more visible to users.

See 8043344 (not public).

JDK 8u40 release includes new JavaFX UI controls; a spinner control, formatted-text support, and a standard set of alert dialogs.

See 8043350 (not public).

Commercial Features

  • Application Class Data Sharing (AppCDS):

    Application Class Data Sharing (AppCDS) extends CDS (see Class Data Sharing) to enable you to place classes from the standard extensions directories and the application class path in the shared archive. This is an experimental feature and not licensed for commercial use. See the -XX:+UseAppCDS option in the java launcher tool page.

  • Cooperative Memory Management:

    Starting with JDK 8u40, the notion of "memory pressure" has been added to the JDK. Memory pressure is a property that represents the total memory usage (RAM) on the system. The higher the memory pressure, the closer the system is to running out of memory.  This is an experimental feature and not licensed for commercial use.

    As a reaction to increased memory pressure, the JDK will try to reduce its memory usage. This is mainly done by reducing the Java heap size. The actions the JDK will take to reduce memory usage may lead to reduced performance. This is an intentional choice.

    The pressure level is provided by the application through a JMX MXBean using a scale from 0 (no pressure) to 10 (almost out of memory). To enable this feature, the should be registered. The memory pressure is then set using the "MemoryPressure" attribute.

    A new command line flag -XX:MemoryRestriction that takes one of the arguments 'none', 'low', 'medium', or 'high', is also available. This flag will set the initial pressure in the JDK and will work also in cases where the MXBean is not registered.

    Cooperative Memory Management requires the G1 GC (-XX:+UseG1GC). This feature is not compatible with the flag -XX:+ExplicitGCInvokesConcurrent.

  • New Commercial Flags:

    Two new VM options are now available for commercial license holders:

    • -XX:+ResourceManagement
    • -XX:ResourceManagementSampleInterval=value (milliseconds)

    For more information, see Java Launcher documentation.

  • Java Flight Recorder(JFR) Enhancements

    It is now possible to enable Java Flight Recorder at runtime. For details, see the Java Flight Recorder Runtime Guide at

  • New MSI Installer Documentation:

    The Microsoft Windows Installer (MSI) Enterprise JRE Installer Guide is available at The MSI Enterprise JRE Installer requires a commercial license for use in production. To learn more about commercial features and how to enable them, visit

Bug Fixes

For a list of bug fixes included in this release, see JDK 8u40 Bug Fixes page.

The following are some of the notable bug fixes included in JDK 8u40 release:

Area: core-svc
Synopsis: Default and static interface methods in JDI, JDWP and JDB

Since JDK 8 it is possible to have directly executable static and default methods in interfaces. These methods are not executable via JDWP or JDI and therefore can not be properly debugged. See JDK 8 Compatibility Guide for more details.

See 8042123.

Area: install
Synopsis: Java Access Bridge can be enabled from Control panel for 32 bit JREs.

Previously the "Enable Java Access Bridge" check box got removed from the Java Control Panel with 64 bit JRE uninstall even when 32 bit JRE was still present on the system.

Starting with JDK 8u40 release, the "Enable Java Access Bridge" checkbox is retained, at Control Panel -> Ease of Access -> Ease of Access Center -> Use the computer without a display, if a 32 bit jre is present. So, a user can enable Java Access bridge via control panel for 32 bit JREs.

See 8030124.

Area: client-libs
Synopsis: Modernizing the JavaFX Media Stack on Mac OS X

An AVFoundation based player platform is added to JavaFX media. The old QTKit based platform is now removable for Mac App Store compatibility.

See 8043697 (not public).

Area: deploy/plugin
Synopsis: Missing DOM APIs

In JDK 8u40 release, the old plugin DOM APIs were inadvertently removed. If an applet requires the use of to communicate with the browser, then users may need to update their applet to use netscape.javascript.JSObject or continue using JDK 8 Update 31.

This issue has been resolved in build 26 and new 8u40 installers have been posted. If you are experiencing this problem, download and run the updated JDK 8u40 installers.

See 8074564.

Area: client-libs/java.awt
Synopsis: Mac 10.10: Application run with splash screen has focus issues

Applications started through webstart or standalone applications, which use splash screen, cannot get keyboard focus.

Workaround: Launch javaws using the -Xnosplash option.

This issue has been resolved in build 27 and a new 8u40 installer has been posted. If you are experiencing this problem, download and run the updated JDK 8u40 installer.

See 8074668.

Known Issues


Area: hotspot/gc
Synopsis: Performance degradation on G1 on Solaris when large pages are requested

When using G1 on Solaris where large pages are requested, the VM does not always use large pages when it could. This may result in significant throughput degradation, particularly on the Solaris x64 platform.

See 8058354.

Area: hotspot/compiler
Synopsis: Nondeterministic arithmetic when converting long strings to integers and performing OSR

For JRE 6 and above, when performing OSR on loops with huge stride and/or initial values, in a very rare case the tiered/server compilers can produce non-canonical loop shapes that can produce nondeterministic answers, when answers should be deterministic.

Workaround: Launch Java using the -XX:-UseOnStackReplacement flag.

See 8072753.


Area: Control
Synopsis: Behavior and access of Control#getUserAgentStylesheet method changed in 8u40.

In JDK 8u40, the getUserAgentStylesheet() method moved from the Control class to the Region superclass.

The method was promoted from protected to public, which preserves binary compatibility, but breaks source compatibility for subclasses of Control that override this method. The solution is to make the overridden method public in the subclass of Control.

The semantics of the method are also changed such that any CSS that is applied from CSS files imported via the getUserAgentStylesheet() method is only applied to the Region in which it is a user agent stylesheet. Previously, a CSS file imported in this way could make changes throughout the application user interface, which could result in unintended style clobbering. This is no longer possible from JDK 8u40 onwards, and applications which might have been relying on this unintended behavior, may see differences in styling as a result.

See RT-38640.

Area: Control
Synopsis: PopupControl$CSSBridge changed to extend Pane in 8u40.

In JDK 8u40, the object inheritance hierarchy of the protected javafx.scene.control.PopupControl$CSSBridge inner class has changed in an incompatible manner. Prior to JDK 8u40, PopupControl$CSSBridge extended from Group and now it extends from Pane.

This is primarily an internal class for custom PopupControls such as Tooltip, but it is possible that a third-party control might subclass this class. Such applications that subclass PopupControl$CSSBridge might be affected if they were calling or overriding methods in Group that are not in Pane.

See RT-33696.
