If you run current 8u tests, then some tests would fail.

Apply this patch to jdk:

This seems to be introduced by 8u backport of JDK-8179098:

11u and 12u are fine.
It turns out that this was more of an issue with the jtreg test case rather than a package access problem at product src level. Code in ext dirs gets all permissions by default as per java.policy file : == // Standard extensions get all permissions by default grant codeBase "file:${{java.ext.dirs}}/*" { permission java.security.AllPermission; }; == jtreg testcase structure was running with reduced permissions. The /policy jtreg tag [1] overrides the default system policy to use only the policy file specified, so it isn't running the test under typical conditions that a user would. If a test uses its own policy file, then it also has to make sure it grants all of the permissions that the JDK code needs too.

Fix Request: Package changes are needed to allow the backported code to function when a SecurityManager is in place. In the original patch, OpenJDK 11 uses the module system so the permission requirements are different there.
