Release Note: java.util.zip.ZipFile.getEntry() now always returns the ZipEntry instance with a '/' ended entry name for directory entry

    Details

      Description

      The `java.util.zip.ZipEntry` API doc specifies "A directory entry is defined to be one whose name ends with a '/'". However, in previous JDK releases `java.util.zip.ZipFile.getEntry(String entryName)` may return a `ZipEntry` instance with an entry name that does not end with '/' for an existing zip directory entry when:

      * the passed in argument `entryName` does not end with a '/', and
      * there is a matching zip directory entry with name `entryName` + '/' in the zip file.

      With this release, the name of the `ZipEntry` instance returned from `java.util.zip.ZipFile.getEntry()` always ends with '/' for any zip directory entry.

      To revert to the previous behavior, set the system property `jdk.util.zip.ensureTrailingSlash` to "false".

      This change was made in order to fix a regression introduced in JDK 8u141 when verifying signed JARs and has caused some WebStart applications to fail to load. See JDK-8184993 for more information.
