Hi All, 

The code to resolve JDK-8190187 has been added to the bug, in hg_diff.txt.

Could a committer please take the fix and: 

1) Complete the CSR process for the new JNI Return code. 
2) Commit the changes that contain the Return code.

And, optionally, 3) Perform 1 and 2 for the jdwp agent changes as well, so 
it can use this new functionality.

Note: the lack of response to this issue over the past few months has been 

interpreted as a lack of community interest in resolving this defect, so, 
this email spark no response, I will not be pursuing the issue further. If 
and when 
community interest does resume, hg_diff contains the most up-to-date code.

Best Regards

Adam Farley
