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).
