Following on from the enhancement request approval,
I'd like to request approval to backport from 11 to 8u:

8196108: Add build support for VS 2015/2017
JBS: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8196108

JDK 11 changeset:http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk/jdk/rev/bcce1fa183e7

Original review thread:

jdk8u webrev:http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~kevinw/8196108/webrev.00/

jdk8u review thread on build-dev: http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/build-dev/2018-June/022314.html

Tested locally and with JPRT on hotspot and jdk tests, using the existing default VS2010 compiler, so the standard build is unaffected.

Many thanks
