I would suggest contact engineers at Oracle who work on Java and explain 
them the issue. Perhaps, it could be solved in two weeks via Java auto 
update. The most widespread form of communication is misunderstanding. 
Perhaps, they are just unaware of it.

I remember couple of years ago I wrote a message to DJI Corporation 
asking to modify the gimbal of the camera on their drones, so that it 
would be possible to tilt it directly down, vertically, 90 degrees, for 
making images for mapping. Maybe it is a coincidence, or maybe there 
were numerous similar requests, but on the Phantom 3 and 4, the camera 
could be well tilted straight down (Controllable Range: pitch -90° to 
+30°). And this feature became popular not only for mapping, but among 
general aerial photographers and videographers.
