In the Java SE 8 release, these values are no longer quoted.This is in strict conformance with the RFC 2617, HTTP Authentication: Basic and Digest Access Authentication.This section describes Java SE 8 incompatibilities in the Java Language, the JVM, or the Java SE API.Note that some APIs have been deprecated in this release and some features have been removed entirely.Java SE 8 Language Specification has introduced static and default methods for interfaces.
The Java SE 8 Editions of the Java Language Specification and JVM Specification did not account for this, with the result that JDK 8 exhibited unspecified behavior.
The JDWP specification has now been updated to allow such invocations.
In JDWP, a new command Digest Authentication implementation incorrectly quoted some values in the WWW-Authenticate Response Header.
While these are incompatibilities, they have been called out in separate lists.
