.oracle_jre_usage directory is created in user home directory

    Details

      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.8.0_60"

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Darwin 13.4.0 Darwin Kernel Version 13.4.0: Wed Mar 18 16:20:14 PDT 2015; root:xnu-2422.115.14~1/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      Executing any java process creates .oracle_jre_usage directory in the users $HOME directory with a single timestamp file inside it.

      This started happening with the JDK 1.8u80 update (in previous versions such directory was not created).

      Note that this is not an appropriate location to store such files. In Mac OS X convention such files ought to be stored in

      ~/Library/Application Support/Oracle/Java/

      However, I am not sure if JRE usage tracking should be enabled by default to begin with.

      REGRESSION. Last worked in version 8u51

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Invoke java or javac and the ~/.oracle_jre_usage directory is (re-)created



      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
