Hi Julia,

I think the fix is fine overall

I noticed that the copyright was not updated in all of the files modified, which may be OK in this case, but I typically change it when I made minor changes as well.  Not a big deal.

The only other question is I am wondering if we want to align the text better with the rest of the javadocs (maybe a separate bug) as for example you look at ZipOutputStream.java, the change on line 144 is slightly off.  Its not a big deal but a minor hiccup from probably using a script which is understandable
