Found a tiny typo ony line 1453, that could also be fixed with this change:
1451 * @throws IOException
1452 * If I/O errors occur
1454 * @since 1.2
1456 public static Enumeration<URL> getSystemResources(String name)

Another relevant change in JDK 9 was that the system initialization was reworked that the built-in system class loader is initialized very early during startup.
