On day 2 after the Oxygen.1a there was quite a disastrous report on SO:
It turned out to be a "simple" installation problem, and I'm afraid
that many users will run into this, too:
Installing Oxygen.1a on top of the BETA Patch feature does not
effectively install the released version of JDT plug-ins.
I believe this needs to be communicated immediately to all those
who previously installed the patch feature.
I don't know, "check for updates" doesn't have a web page ...
PS: needless to say, that the RC2a respin is also without effect in

I have not looked at this in detail, but one solution would be to
produce a new "Beta Java-9 patch" even though it is no longer needed
Its purpose would be to simply make sure the latest JDT was installed
(instead of the patched parts of JDT).
The idea is that if someone has the beta patch installed already, then
"check for updates" would effectively pull in Oxygen 1a.
