Critical Request: - Justification : GIS will be updating the protocol for docs.oracle.com from HTTP to HTTPS. Any links to http://docs.oracle.com or http://download.oracle.com should be updated to https://docs.oracle.com. Currently, http://download.oracle.com automatically redirects to http://docs.oracle.com. - Risk Analysis : low risk fix - Webrev : http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~bpatel/8068495/webrev.00 - Testing (done/to-be-done) : The build works fine. - Back ports (done/to-be-done) : None - Fix For Release : 8u40
