    Description

      The padding names in the Cipher table in the Oracle Providers doc [1] use all upper case. Even though they are case-insensitive, we should make them consistent with the names in the Standard Algorithm Names doc [2]. For example, PKCS5PADDING should be PKCS5Padding, ISO10126PADDING should be ISO10126Padding, etc.
