Please, review JDK9 fix [1] for a bug [2] in 'getNodeValue' JAXP function:
    According to w3c [3] getNodeValue should return 'null' value for 
Element nodes. This behavior was changed by JDK-8032908 [4] fix - in 
current implementation the node content is returned.
To address this issue the JDK-8032908 fix was reverted and 
'getTextContent' function was modified properly to address issue 
reported by JDK-8032908.
JDK-8032908 test was modified to test that 'getNodeValue' returns 'null' 
for Element nodes.
DocumentExtFunc test was modified to use 'getTextContent' instead of 
'getNodeValue' for node content retrival. No related test failures on 
local and JPRT builds were observed.
