Note: b72 includes 8081708
<http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=8081607> - Change
default GC for server configurations to G1
As described in JEP 248 <http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/248>, switching to
a low-pause collector in JDK 9 such as G1 should provide a better
overall experience, for most users, than a throughput-oriented collector
such as the Parallel GC, which is
currently the default.
A call for feedback and data points
regarding this change went out on the hotspot-dev
such input should be provided.
