IBM SDK, Java Technology Edition, Version 6 Service Refresh 14
IBM SDK, Java Technology Edition, Version 6 Service Refresh 14 general availability.
Service refresh 14 is now available on developerWorks for all platforms and contains the following changes:
File descriptors are now closed immediately
There is a change to the default behaviour of the close() method of the FileInputStream, FileOutputStream, and RandomAccessFile classes. In previous releases, the default behavior was to close the file descriptor only when all the streams that were using it were also closed. The new default behavior is to close the file descriptor regardless of any other streams that might still be using it. You can revert to the previous default behavior by using a system property, however this property will be removed in future releases. For more information, see -Dcom.ibm.streamsCloseFDWithStream.
Unexpected XSLT error on extension elements or extension functions when Java security is enabled
Any attempt to use extension elements or extension functions when Java security is enabled, results in a javax.xml.transform.TransformerException error during XSLT processing. This change in behavior is introduced to enhance security. For more information, see Unexpected XSLT error on extension elements or extension functions when Java security is enabled.
