Fix Information

REST framework (restjavad) upgrade to 64-bit OpenJDK 8 JVM. Note: This results in an increase in the size of /usr. Although not an issue on its own, cumulative increases in /var, /usr, and /root might result in installation failures on iSeries devices when multiple slots contain software versions 16.1.x or later. Depending on the combination of versions, you might not be able to install/upgrade three TMOS software volumes on your iSeries device (see K41812306: The appdata volume on BIG-IP iSeries platforms is now larger :: https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K41812306 ).
