    Details

    • Subcomponent:

    • OS:

      Description

      Attempt to clear cache from JCP, fails when "Keep temporary files on my computer" is disabled in JDK 9. This seems a regression when compared to JDK 8u.

      Checked with JDK 9 ea b165 and 8u121 b13. To verify, follow steps as described.
      - Open Java Control Panel
      - Select main tab as "Web Settings"
      - Now, select "Temporary Files Settings"
      - Uncheck "Keep temporary files on my computer"
      - Click Apply - OK

      - Switch to tab "Java cache Viewer"
      - Select any or all the items in the list under "User" or "System"
      - Attempt to delete by pressing delete key or using shortcut icon X
      Note: The application does not get deleted

      As a workaround now,
      - switch back to "Temporary Files Settings"
      - Check "Keep temporary files on my computer"
      Click Apply - OK

      - Switch again to tab "Java cache Viewer"
      - Select any or all the items in the list under "User" or "System" and attempt to delete by pressing delete key or using sing shortcut icon X
      Note: The application/s does get deleted now
      Also, see video grab (subsequent comment) from the attempt.
