Java 1.6 JRE contains deploy.jar, which provides the VersionID class. However, Java 1.8u5 does not have it anymore.

I cannot find any log w.r.t the change.

Can anyone please point out whether the absence is deliberate or just an accident? If deliberate, what is the replacement of VersionID in Java 8?

Many Thanks
