    Description

      The class -XX:ExplicitGCInvokesConcurrentAndUnloadsClasses is no longer necessary since there already are two flags covering this functionality:
      -XX:ExplicitGCInvokesConcurrent
      -XX:ClassUnloadingWithConcurrentMark

      The above two flags are sufficient to express -XX:+ExplicitGCInvokesConcurrentAndUnloadsClasses, just enable the above two flags :-XX:+ExplicitGCInvokesConcurrent -XX:+ClassUnloadingWithConcurrentMark. Therefore, the flag -XX:ExplicitGCInvokesConcurrentAndUnloadsClasses should be deprecated and removed in a future release, it provides no extra functionality and is cumbersome to validate.
