BCEL 6.3.1 was released on 3/20/2019. We shall look into upgrading the internal BCEL library from 6.0 to 6.3.1.
Fix request (13) requesting backport to 13u for parity with 11u. Applies cleanly, tested with tier1 and jaxp tests.

Fix request (11u) I would like to downport this for parity with 11.0.6-oracle. Applies clean.

Enhancement request declined by Project Lead. This large change is not critical to the success of the release. Please retarget to JDK 14.

Late Enhancement Request Risk level: low. The BCEL component is used for XML transform only. Pre-assessment showed that all of the existing XML related tests passed, including JCK XML tests, JAXP functional and unit tests. SPECjvm2008-XML.* tests resulted in no performance change when comparing builds before and after applying the BCEL update. Benefit: Keeping BCEL in sync with the external project.
