Are there tests that can be used to verify this (both for 8 and 7u40? 
Are you confident that tests cover all the overrides scenarios?

I think isJDKandAbove has the assume the long standing format for 
java.version. If someone really did change the format to what you are 
suggesting then the code would fail with a value such as "7.40".

In getJAXPSystemProperty's comment then I assume it should be ${java.home}.
