I upgraded to 8u60, now JDK 8 jar signer works with a JDK 9 created keystore.
I also created a keystore with keytool -genkeypair -keyalg RSA -sigalg SHA1withRSA ...
and signed with both JDK8 and JDK9 jarsigner -sigalg SHA1withRSA …
The jar file sizes are still different. The embedded .SF and .RSA entries are different sizes. I can see that the headers in the .SF files are different, accounting for some of the difference.
I think I’m getting distracted here, not focusing on getting tests created. Is it okay to move on?
