Java 7 could be marked as supporting TLS 1.2

It looks like Java 7 does support (and could negotiate) TLS 1.2 but doesn't by deafult[1]. The fact that it shows up as not supporting TLS 1.2[2] made me think that I need to retain TLS 1.0 for internal servers with java clients, and that TLS 1.2 availability is lower than it actually is. It'd be useful if the fact that it can be configured to support TLS 1.2 was indicated as a footnote in the simulation and the detailed pages.


Thanks for the useful service,
