Documenting JDK-specific and platform specific configuration has always
been problematic. Many of the Sun era guides and documentation are dusty
now and aren't easy to find. We have used release notes in recent
releases but they aren't always easy to find either. With @implNote
descriptions, @index and more recently @systemProperty, they we have a
set of tags that should help put some of this JDK-specific documentation
into the javadoc.
