Javadoc for method of class java.beans.Introspector

public static synchronized String[] getBeanInfoSearchPath()

says nothing about default value of search path.
Specification for this initial value has been removed from javadoc 
due to bug fix #4234304 as implementation specific information.
This implementation specific information should be included to 
documentation. So, javadoc for this method should contain assertion likes follow:
"Default value for this array is implementation dependent, 
e.g. SUN implementation initialy sets it to {"sun.beans.infos"}."

EVALUATION

> In my mind, the "bad form" aspect is that once you mention it

> But including an example seems fine to me.
> I see no problem with the wording suggested in the second bug

> 
>  "Default value for this array is implementation dependent,
>   e.g. SUN implementation initialy sets it to {"sun.beans.infos"}."

> This would seem to satisfy both bug requests.  Would this be

This is fine with me.
