    Is the SoftReferences "bug" going to be fixed for Java 8?

    796211
      Hi. I'm not sure this is the best place to ask this question but was wondering if anyone here works for oracle or has information regarding this bug:

      http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do;jsessionid=cfd518f51afc7780e5188276b5f9?bug_id=6912889

      It says the targeted version is 8 but I've not heard anything about it being fixed.

      Does anyone know if this is going to be fixed or a way I could vote on it to be fixed?

      Thanks, Nick.

          So I guess it will be fixed then. Java 8 is still a while away.

          Why would anyone know? This is just a user-to-user forum, we're all exactly like you: not in Oracle's inner circle. And no you can't vote anymore.

          Of course someone could contribute a fix to the OpenJDK project to speed up the process if it were really important to them that it was fixed.
