This is a request for review to backport the changes for:
to jdk7u-dev.

The changeset for jdk7u-dev only slightly differs from that
for jdk 8, on these two counts:

1. JAXP needs to be compiled with the bootstrap JDK - which
    means that JAXP in jdk 7 cannot depend on new jdk 7 APIs.

    In Encodings.java I had to replace a try-with-resource by
    a try-finally.

2. The jdk/test/Makefile needed to be updated in order to add
    javax/xml/jaxp to the jdk_other target.

Here is the webrev for the changeset that was pushed in jdk8:

Here is the altered webrev for jdk7u-dev:

The review for the original fix happened for jdk8 on the
