JDK 8u5 and JDK 7u55 Documentation Updates

The Java Development Kit 8 Update 5 (JDK 8u5) and JDK 7u55 releases are available and can be downloaded from the Java SE Downloads page. For information about these releases, see the JDK 8u5 Release Notes and the JDK 7u55 Release Notes.

JDK 8u5 and 7u55 enhancements include the following:

  • The frequency of some security dialogs has been reduced on systems that run the same Rich Internet Application (RIA) multiple times.
  • If a stand-alone asterisk (*) is specified as the value for the Caller-Allowable-Codebase attribute, then calls from JavaScript code to RIA will show a security warning, and users have the choice to allow the call or block the call. For more information, see JAR File Manifest Attributes for Security (or the JDK 7 version of this section).

Java Tutorials Now Available as eBooks!

The Java Tutorials have been updated. The major feature of this release is that most of the tutorial trails are now available as free downloadable eBooks!

What is new in the March 2nd, 2012 release:

  • The Java Tutorials are now available in two new formats:
    • mobi ebook files for Kindle. For best results we recommend viewing on the Kindle Fire or Kindle DX.
    • ePub ebook files for iPad, Nook, and other eReaders that support the ePub format.
  • Each ebook contains a single trail. You can download trails via the link in the "In Book Form" box on the tutorial's front page.

    For best results when viewing preformatted code blocks, adjust the landscape/portrait orientation and font size of your device to enable the maximum possible viewing area.

  • We are pleased to announce that the Preparation for Java Programmer Language Certification lesson has been completely reworked. The objectives for each Java SE 7 certification exam are listed and links are provided to relevant tutorial pages.

  • The Internationalization of Network Resources lesson has been updated.

For more information, see The Java Tutorials.
