What aspects are problematic or could work better?
There are limitations if you want to manage VM and JVM settings, if you use 3rd party code you will have some difficulties when it comes to file access. They need to work more on JRE and Log4J. They modified the libraries and access to services and now there can’t be found portable app codes.
