This looks fine but you should wait until JDK-8078318 (Public API for 
jarsigner) is resolved, and then change the places where it says "{@code 
JarSigner}" to an "{@link JarSigner}" (using the correct package 
name/syntax). Add an "is blocked by" link.

Also a few other comments:

1. Add a noreg label to the bug
2. File a separate docs bug and target it to 9 to update the jarsigner 
man page to document that the options are deprecated. Also add a 
"securitydocs" label to that bug.
3. Add a "release-notes=yes" label with a few sentences describing what 
has been deprecated for the release notes.
