        Description

        JDK 9 EA currently ships the unlimited JCE policy files along with the limited ones. The limited ones are still enabled by default.

        A similar setup should be done for the JDK update releases. As per JDK 9 README, config changes can be made via modification of the JDK contents.

            The current JDK 9 approach is to ship both unlimited and limited policy jars/files in different directories, with a new Security property selecting which policy is active.
