JDK-8043200 introduces changes to make the RC4 ciphersuite less preferable. To maintain the old behaviour for applications that may have issues in working with new ciphersuites, a system property flag can be introduced to revert to the old behaviour.
current suggestion for property name : jdk.tls.preserveRC4CipherSuites
This would apply to older JDK families old. JDK 7u, JDK 6u and JDK 5u.
