Please review.

Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8143404
Webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~sundar/8143404/webrev.00/

Apple script engine implementing javax.script engine API is being 
removed. AppleScript engine has flip flopped between working and broken 
many times.The services configuration (META-INF/services) file was 
missing and only worked by accident when installing JDK 7 or JDK 8 on 
systems that had Apple's version of AppleScriptEngine.jar already on the 
system.  So, it is removed for jdk 9.
