      Description

      Zip optimization was added in 6u4 as a means to improve the javac compilation.
      This optimization is essentially reading the zip file and caching the Zip entries.
      Since this uses the Zip format extensively it needs continuous maintenance, and
      experiments show that there the cost of maintenance outweighs the performance
      gains in jdk7.
