Fix Version/s: 16
Compatibility Risk Description:These trace flags are primarily used for debugging purposes.
Interface Kind:add/remove/modify command line option
The following trace flags were deprecated in previous releases and should be obsolesced in JDK-16. Users can get the same tracing information that was provided by these flags by using unified logging flags.
Trace flags deprecated in JDK-9:
Trace flag PrintSharedSpaces was deprecated in JDK-10, PrintJNIResolving in JDK-14, and TraceInvokeDynamic and TraceMethodHandles in JDK-15.
JVM trace flags that were deprecated in previous releases should be obsolesced in JDK-16.
By obsoleting these flags, the JVM will no longer translate the flags into their unified logging alternative. Instead, the JVM will ignore these flags.
The descriptions of the above flags will be moved from the Deprecated Java Options section of the Java man page to the Obsolete Java Options section.
