Please review the fix for jdk11.

Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8205537
Webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~serb/8205537/webrev.00/

sun.applet is an internal package contained some code related to 
implementation of applets and appletviewer. Some of its classes were 
dropped already: JDK-8204454, JDK-8203308. Now there are only 3 classes, 
all related to the applet security and we can drop them as well.

In the fix this package was removed, and the tests were updated to not 
use it. I am not sure how "ClassnameCharTest.java" is useful after 
applets removal, but since this test used subclass of the 
AppletClassLoader, I have copied some code from the removed class to the 

Best regards, Sergey.
