The full version string for this update release is 1.7.0_211-b07 (where “b” means “build”). The full version string for this update release is 1.7.0_221-b08 (where “b” means “build”). Note that the default value might change in a future update release of the JDK. The full version string for this update release is 1.7.0_231-b08 (where “b” means “build”). Runtime.exec and ProcessBuilder have been updated in this release to tighten the constraints on the quoting of arguments to processes created by these APIs.
The full version string for this update release is 1.7.0_71-b14 (where “b” means “build”). The 7u4 installer now correctly registers javaw.exe as handler for jar files. After installing 7u4 build 22(Windows), jars can be launched correctly by double clicking them. Starting in Java SE 7u4 the Garbage First Collector is fully supported. The G1 collector is targeted for applications that fully utilize the large amount of memory available in today’s multiprocessor servers, while still keeping garbage collection latencies under control.
Java 11 updates
Now, both TLS handshake messages and X.509 certificates signed with MD5withRSA algorithm are no longer acceptable by default. This change extends the previous MD5-based certificate restriction (“jdk.certpath.disabledAlgorithms”) to also include handshake messages in TLS version 1.2. If required, this algorithm can be reactivated by removing “MD5withRSA” from the “jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms” security property. For systems unable to reach the Oracle Servers, a secondary mechanism expires this JRE (version 7u241) on February 14, 2020. For systems unable to reach the Oracle Servers, a secondary mechanism expires this JRE (version 7u251) on May 14, 2020. For systems unable to reach the Oracle Servers, a secondary mechanism expires this JRE (version 7u261) on August 14, 2020.

. Java SE Subscription customers managing JRE updates/installs for large number of desktops should consider using Java Advanced Management Console (AMC). This change does not affect TLS 1.3 as the minimum DH group size is already 2048 bits. Java SE Subscription customers managing JRE updates/installs for large number of desktops should consider
using Java Advanced Management Console (AMC). A new system property named org.jcp.xml.dsig.secureValidation has been added. It can be used to enable or disable the XML Signature secure validation mode.
Update Release Notes
Starting with JDK 7u79 release, the jar tool no longer allows the leading slash “/” and “..” (dot-dot) path component in zip entry file name when creating new and/or extracting from zip and jar file. If needed, the new command line option “-P” should be used explicitly to preserve the dot-dot and/or absolute path component. The JDK includes tools useful for developing and testing programs written in the Java programming language and running on the JavaTM platform. For release notes on versions greater than 1.7.0_80 please visit the Java SE 7 Advanced and Java SE 7 Support release notes. It is an enterprise platform that is mainly used to develop web and enterprise applications.
- Some programs allow conversion of Java programs from one version of the Java platform to an older one (for example Java 5.0 backported to 1.4) (see Java backporting tools).
- This release of Java SE 7u4 includes 64-bit JDK support for Mac OS X Lion and above.
- This change extends the previous MD5-based certificate restriction (“jdk.certpath.disabledAlgorithms”) to also include handshake messages in TLS version 1.2.
- The default maximum size of the CodeCache on most of the platforms is 48M.
- The following sections summarize changes made in all Java SE 7u211 BPR releases.
A similar error may occur if you are using NSS with the SunPKCS11 provider. The workaround is to use the -sigalg option of keytool and specify SHA1withDSA. The user can also provide a filter pattern string to the default agent via management.properties. New public attributes, RMIConnectorServer.CREDENTIALS_FILTER_PATTERN and RMIConnectorServer.SERIAL_FILTER_PATTERN have been added to RMIConnectorServer.java. The default pattern allows java.lang.Enum, java.security.KeyRep, java.security.KeyRep$Type, and javax.crypto.spec.SecretKeySpec but rejects all the others. Define this system property (or set it to true) to disable endpoint identification algorithms.
Java™ SE Development Kit 7, Update 281 (JDK 7u
All RC4 suites are already disabled in JDK 8u60 and later JDK releases. In applications where there is no security manager, there is no change in the default behavior and the new restrictions are opt-in. To enable the restrictions, set the system property jdk.lang.Process.allowAmbiguousCommands to false. With 47 weak named curves to be disabled, adding individual named curves to each disabledAlgorithms property would be overwhelming.
Please refer to JSSE Reference Guide about how to customize SSL/TLS cipher suites. For a list of bug fixes included in this release, see java 7 certifications JDK 7u51 Bug Fixes page. The default socket permissions assigned to all code including untrusted code have been changed in this release.
Java™ SE Development Kit 7 Update 80 Release Notes
Please note that fixes from prior BPR (7u211 b32) are included in this version. The jarsigner tool now shows more information about the lifetime of a timestamped JAR. New warning and error messages are displayed when a timestamp has expired or is expiring within one year. Prior to this fix, Windows Server 2019 was recognized as “Windows Server 2016”, which produced incorrect values in the os.name system property and the hs_err_pid file. Please note that fixes from prior BPR (7u221 b35) are included in this version. This option allows control of which implementation of ECC is in use.
