Here is the description from that bug:

If HotSpot crashes on MacOS and core files are enabled, it prints current directory as location of core file:

Core dump written. Default location: /net/vmsqe.russia/export/home/nh161220/bugs/macos-JumbleGC/core or core.26246

This is wrong on MacOS, the core file will be in /cores. It's better to change HotSpot to print that location.

EVALUATION http://hg.openjdk.java.net/hsx/hotspot-rt/hotspot/rev/65906dc96aa1

EVALUATION It reports the "Default location". Hotspot can not know for certain where a core file will go - for example on Solaris coreadm can be used to configure where core files go. See: "7014918: Improve core/minidump handling in Hotspot" for last update in this area.
