Java SE Runtime Environment 9

9.0.4.0.11
16 January 2018

Java runtime environment from Oracle.

Overview

Java SE 9 has reached end of support. Users of Java SE 9 should switch to Java SE 10

Java SE Runtime Environment 9 was an update to the Java Platform. This release included much awaited new features like the modularization of the Java Platform, better performance, support for new standards, and many other improvements.

What's new in Java SE Runtime Environment 9

Version 9.0.4.0.11 (Java 9.0.4 build 11):
New
  • security-libs/javax.net.ssl - Negotiated Finite Field Diffie-Hellman Ephemeral Parameters for TLS -- The JDK SunJSSE implementation now supports the TLS FFDHE mechanisms defined in RFC 7919. If a server cannot process the supported_groups TLS extension or the named groups in the extension, applications can either customize the supported group names with jdk.tls.namedGroups, or turn off the FFDHE mechanisms by setting the System Property jsse.enableFFDHEExtension to false.
  • other-libs/corba - Add additional IDL stub type checks to org.omg.CORBA.ORBstring_to_object method -- Applications that either explicitly or implicitly call org.omg.CORBA.ORB.string_to_object, and wish to ensure the integrity of the IDL stub type involved in the ORB::string_to_object call flow, should specify additional IDL stub type checking. This is an "opt in" feature and is not enabled by default. If the com.sun.CORBA.ORBIorTypeCheckRegistryFilter property is not set, the type checking is only performed against a set of class names of the IDL interface types corresponding to the built-in IDL stub classes.
Changed
  • security-libs/javax.crypto - RSA public key validation -- In 9.0.4, the RSA implementation in the SunRsaSign provider will reject any RSA public key that has an exponent that is not in the valid range as defined by PKCS#1 version 2.2. This change will affect JSSE connections as well as applications built on JCE.
  • security-libs/javax.crypto - Provider default key size is updated -- This change updates the JDK providers to use 2048 bits as the default key size for DSA instead of 1024 bits when applications have not explicitly initialized the java.security.KeyPairGenerator and java.security.AlgorithmParameterGenerator objects with a key size. If compatibility issues arise, existing applications can set the system property jdk.security.defaultKeySize introduced in JDK-8181048 with the algorithm and its desired default key size.
  • security-libs/javax.crypto - Stricter key generation -- The generateSecret(String) method has been mostly disabled in the javax.crypto.KeyAgreement services of the SUN and SunPKCS11 providers. Invoking this method for these providers will result in a NoSuchAlgorithmException for most algorithm string arguments. The previous behavior of this method can be re-enabled by setting the value of the jdk.crypto.KeyAgreement.legacyKDF system property to true (case insensitive). Re-enabling this method by setting this system property is not recommended.
  • security-libs/javax.net.ssl - Disable exportable cipher suites -- To improve the strength of SSL/TLS connections, exportable cipher suites have been disabled in SSL/TLS connections in the JDK by the jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms Security Property.
  • core-svc/javax.management - JMX Connections need deserialization filters -- New public attributes, RMIConnectorServer.CREDENTIALS_FILTER_PATTERN and RMIConnectorServer.SERIAL_FILTER_PATTERN have been added to RMIConnectorServer.java. With these new attributes, users can specify the deserialization filter pattern strings to be used while making a RMIServer.newClient() remote call and while sending deserializing parameters over RMI to server respectively. The user can also provide a filter pattern string to the default agent via management.properties. As a result, a new attribute is added to management.properties. Existing attribute RMIConnectorServer.CREDENTIAL_TYPES is superseded by RMIConnectorServer.CREDENTIALS_FILTER_PATTERN and has been removed.
Fixed
  • JBS - component - subcomponent - Description
  • JDK-8185661 - deploy - webstart - JNLP files won't launch from IE11 on Windows 10 Creators Update
  • JDK-8190285 - hotspot - runtime - s390: Some java boolean checks are not correct
  • JDK-8181922 - javafx - media - Provide media support for libav version 57
  • JDK-8088681 - javafx - web - Underscore not visible in HTML combo box options inside webview
  • JDK-8185970 - javafx - web - Possible crash due to use‑after‑free
  • JDK-8189131 - security‑libs - java.security - Open‑source the Oracle JDK Root Certificates
  • JDK-8186093 - security‑libs - javax.crypto - A comment in the java.security configuration file incorrectly says that "strong but limited" is the default value
  • JDK-8140436 - security‑libs - javax.net.ssl - Negotiated Finite Field Diffie‑Hellman Ephemeral Parameters for TLS
  • JDK-8148421 - security‑libs - javax.net.ssl - Transport Layer Security (TLS) Session Hash and Extended Master Secret Extension
  • JDK-8163237 - security‑libs - javax.net.ssl - Restrict the use of EXPORT cipher suites
  • JDK-8193683 - security‑libs - javax.net.ssl - Increase the number of clones in the CloneableDigest

The usual reminder: Java is the single most DaNGeRouS software Mac users can run on the Internet. If you're a user on the Internet: Don't run Java in your browsers unless you really really have to. Even then, turn it off when you're done or it may leave a nasty stain. If you're a developer: Please give the world a break and use some other technology for programming on the web. Java really is the worst POS rubbish coding language on the Internet, no exceptions. Thank you for caring. Oh and thank YOU Oracle for ruining Java. I hate you Oracle!

For information, ImageJ and all derivatives seem incompatible with the Java 9 JDK at this point.

Although Oracle isn't pushing 1.8.74.02 yet via java.com/download, it's available alongside 1.8.73.02 on their Java SE Runtime Environment 8 Downloads page.

@rardin - Well I'll be.. you're right. Strange though. The installed Java Control Panel only updates you to 1.8.73.02 and then says you're up-to-date. Why not link to the ACTUAL most current version?

So weird. I’ve tried to update from 73.02 to 74.02 a dozen times with MacUpdate app, and after every (apparently) successful install, MacUpdate still thinks it's 73.02 and shows an update available. WTF? Is this a "real" update, or what?

@Steven What I discovered is that the MacUpdate app downloads the INSTALLER for the latest Java. It does not actually install Java (at least not 1.8.74). Go to the "Installed" tab in the app, select "Java 8 Update 74" and click on the "Open" button in the right column. This will trigge/open the installer for version 1.8.74. Run this and then you'll be up to date. Yeah, it's totally misleading/confusing.

Shock-J -- Brilliant! Thanks so much, that did it. Found the Installer -- a file/app called "Java 8 Update 74 and ran it and it updated. Appreciate your taking the time to share this; I'm sure I'm not the only one who has been a bit baffled.

Don't install it. If you already have a version of Oracle's Java Internet plug-in installed, go to Oracle's website and download their universal UNinstaller for Java, then run it. The Oracle Java Internet plug-in is one of the most dangerous pieces of software you can run on the Internet, second only to Adobe's awful Flash Player plug-in. Just say 'NO!'

I just installed Java 8 Update 60 and there was no sign of any malware. I checked first with Pacifist also to make sure before launching the installer. Thanks for listening Oracle and getting rid of that nonsense. Update went smooth with 10.10.5 and no troubles with the few Java apps I use.

I am unable to install the Java 8 Update 45 on my mac version 10.10.3. I keep getting messages that Java 8 Update 45 is now available-you have Java 8 Update 31. So I click on Install Update from the Software Update window. That causes the update to download, but it never installs. If I go to the Java Control Panel from System Preferences, it again says that my current version is Java 8 Update 31. No matter how many times I click on Update, it never updates. How do I fix this?

Well, this is getting to be farcical. Oracle just released a new build, JRE 1.8.0_40-b26 (vs the previously released 1.8.0_40-b25). While the standalone installer downloaded from Oracle's web site no longer attempts to install the Ask.com adware, the preference pane updater now does.

I really don't get the mentality behind a successful company like Oracle trying to sneak adware onto the user's system. Yes, you can opt out, if you're paying close attention, in which case Oracle has at best mildly annoyed you and gained nothing in return.

But if (not being used to such tricks in the Mac world) your eyes glazed over and you clicked "Next" without unticking the tiny checkbox that's buried in visual clutter, you'd find yourself with your homepage hijacked and a new ad-laden browser toolbar you didn't want, in which case you'd be furious at Oracle.

Either way, whether Oracle wins or loses in their attempt to sneak adware onto your system, from henceforward you're probably going to be inclined to regard the company as sleazy.

The easy answer is to remove Oracles Java from your system and never install it again. Do the same with Flash and your mac is much more secure than before.

what adware are you talking about? i've always installed the JDK directly from oracle's site and i've never had anything added to any browser that changed my home page or added a tool bar. No version of java has done that to any of my systems.

In fact, I forgot to add in my first post, I have the latest version of adware medic and it's never detected anything from the oracle installer. The only time it's reported adware is if firefox or chrome tries to install something.

Sean Smith, the last 15+ years I have been downloading JDK and JRE from http://java.sun.com , which still works, redirecting to http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java nowadays :) Being old school, I never really like automatic updates in the programs and tools I use. I hated http://www.java.com right from the start as I believe it gives Java a bad name.
