OpenJDK was recently updated to support reading the system certificate authority /etc/pki/java/cacerts database directly. As a consequence, this removed the ability to read certificates from the user-provided /usr/lib/jvm/<NVRA-of-JDK>/jre/lib/security/jssecacert file. With this update, that ability is restored by reading from that file first, if available.
