Server selected improper ciphersuite SSL_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_MD5

We ran into this error when updating to Java 8 update 51. Update 31 worked properly, but update 51 must have disabled an outdated cipher suite.

The fix was to disable the SSL_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_MD5 cipher suite in our Oracle HTTP server (everything was selected before, so we disabled all insecure cipher suites).
