The com.sun.jarsigner APIs should have an @jdk.Exported annotation. They have always been considered to be supported JDK APIs. We missed adding this annotation in JDK 8 as part of JEP-179.

This will require a CCC. This will also require a change to the jdk.dev module to export the com.sun.jarsigner package.
jdk.Exported will not be needed when we moved to modules, still TBD if the annotation will go away in JDK 9.
