Please review and comment on 3 clarifications to ProcessHandle and Process.
8138566: (Process) java.lang.Process.allChildren specification clarification
- Rename the allChildren() method to descendants() - it is more
less easily confused with the children method.
- The risk of renaming is method is minimal since it has been only
available for a short time.
8140213: Process/ProcessHandle.onExit() spec need to be improved
- The timing of the completion of the CompletableFuture was too
With the isAlive method, it is possible to observe that the
process has terminated
before the CF is completed. The CF is completed sometime after
the process terminates.
8140250: (process) Process.info description is inaccurate
- The specification of the Process/ProcessHandle.info() method did
the implementation. On an OS (Windows) some information is
the process after it is no longer alive.
