Release Note: Remove Thread Text from Subject.current

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      The specification of `Subject.current` has been changed in this release to drop the expectation that the `Subject` is inherited when creating a thread. At this time, the `Subject` is stored in the `AccessControlContext` and is inherited when creating platform threads. Virtual threads do not capture the caller context at thread creation time and the `AccessControlContext` is not inherited. Inheritance will be re-examined in a future release in advance of removing support for the `SecurityManager` and the inherited `AccessControlContext`.
