Remove the deprecated pre-JDK 1.2
java.lang.SecurityManager methods and fields that have been marked for removal in Java SE 9.
These methods and fields are only for use in
SecurityManager implementations prior to JDK 1.2. It is no longer necessary to retain support for pre-JDK 1.2
SecurityManager implementations. Removing these methods will clean up the
SecurityManager class and eliminate the potential for them to be used incorrectly or insecurely.
Remove the following deprecated java.lang.SecurityManager methods and fields that have been marked with forRemoval=true in JDK 9: the
inCheck field, and the
Also, change the
checkMemberAccess method to throw
SecurityException if the caller has not been granted
AllPermission as this method is error-prone and users should instead invoke
checkPermission directly. The
checkMemberAccess method was deprecated in JDK 8 and marked for removal in 9, but we feel it is too early to remove it. Changing the behavior as noted eliminates the risk that it will be used incorrectly (and unsafely).
