Application Class-data Sharing: CDS was introduced in JDK 5 to improve the performance of the JVM startup and reduce the resource footprint when multiple JVMs are running on the same physical or virtual machine.
These enhance the java.util.Locale class and related APIs to implement additional Unicode extensions of BCP 47 language tags. Specifically, tags for currency type, the first day of the week, region override and time zone will now be supported.
319] Root Certificates: This will provide a default set of root Certification Authority (CA) certificates in the JDK. Critical security components such as TLS will now work by default in OpenJDK builds. This is a beneficial addition and is probably part of the work Oracle is undertaking to ensure that OpenJDK binaries and Oracle JDK binaries are functionally the same.
G1 is designed as a low-latency garbage collector (but will still resort to a full compacting collection if it cannot keep up with the rate of promotion to the old generation or fragmentation of the heap). Prior to JDK 9, the default collector was the parallel, throughput, collector. To reduce differences in the performance profile of applications using the default collector, G1 now has a parallel full collection
The format being used is very similar to that introduced in JDK 9 to give a more semantic form. The one thing that bugs me about this is the inclusion of an INTERIM element, which as the JEP states, “is always zero”. Well, if it’s always zero, what’s the point of having it? Yes, they say it’s reserved for future use, but I still don’t like it. This is unnecessary complexity in my opinion.
Starting with Java 9, the availability of free public updates for Java is typically limited to 6 months after each release of Java SE. That's fine for lots of development teams, but businesses need to know that they can get access to security patches, stability updates, and bugfixes. Zulu Enterprise Support plans protect your business, and ensure that you don't miss critical platform updates and patches. We're also available to help your team 24 x 7 x 365.
