Prior to Java SE 8, a Java SE application can provide a version name for itself. The version name is stored in a registry, and can be retrieved by means of the
java.lang.ClassLoader.getSystemClassLoader() method. This method returns the Java SE version-1.2 class loader. In the Java SE 8 release, a version name is not required. Instead, the Java SE application should include an in-line version number in the application source.
Prior to Java SE 8, a Java SE application could extend the
java.lang.ClassLoader class and overwrite the
getSystemClassLoader() method to return an instance of that class. This is not permitted in the Java SE 8 release. Instead, the
ClassLoader interface defines a method
getSystemClassLoader(String), which, when passed a
null string, returns the Java SE version-1.2 class loader.
java.util.concurrent.Executor class had many improved methods added to the interface, and the
ExecutorService class had many better methods added. There is no change in behavior except that the
shutdown method was changed to
shutdownNow, and the
Executors.newCachedThreadPool method was changed to
Executors.newCachedThreadPool. As a result, the enhanced methods in
java.util.concurrent.Executor are no longer present in
The StAX API, JSR 173, defined newInstance and newFactory methods with a class as a parameter. Since there was no constraint on what the value could be in the StAX specification, it implied it could be any arbitrary class. With JDK 8 specification change, in the context of JAXP, the value of class must be the name of the base service class if it is intended to represent the name of the service configuration file, that is, if it is not the name of a System Property.
As of this release, the JAXP specification places constraints on the values of the systemId and publicId system properties. Neither of these can contain the colon character (‘:’).
Compiling in a target that is not the default now generates a warning for the case where a compound class is used as a source in a static initializer in a class. Prior to this release this had no warning. Hence, adding the -Xlint:static flag to javac could be used to generate this warning.
Previous releases of the java.util.jar.JarFile class used the getEntry method to return a directory entry rather than an entry located at the entry’s parent folder. These directory entries are now located at their parent folder as defined by the spec, rather than at the current parent folder. Use of the now invalid getEntry method to obtain a directory entry will now generate an unchecked exception. It is recommended that programs be modified to use the correct methods:
