      Description

      java.net.Socket and ServerSocket have support for pre JDK 1.4 SocketImpl implementations, specifically to support SocketImpls that were compiled with JDK 1.3 or older, which do not have support for unconnected sockets. This support is legacy. Such implementations do not compile with JDK 1.4 or newer, so it should be relatively safe to drop this support.
