JMC-6118 Java Mission Control tests fail on OpenJDK8

Hi Josh,

Looks fine! That said, we should make JDK 11 the default for running the 
UI-tests as soon as we can. There is a high risk of bugs slipping through in 
the most important parts of JMC if only tested on OpenJDK 8.

Kind regards,

    The following patch adds four additional tests to the list of excluded
    tests on OpenJDK8:
    ControlRecordingsTest - Attempts to perform various operations on a
    recording from the JVM Browser, fails since we don't have flight recorder
    functionality in OpenJDK8
    JfrWizardTest - Attempts to test various options in the JFR Recording
    wizard. The wizard is started from the JVM Browser, so it fails for the
    same reasons as the previous test.
    TemplateManagerTest - Requires the JVM Browser to have JFR functionality,
    same as above.
    DiagnosticCommandsTabTest - Expects JFR diagnostic commands to be present
    in the list of options. They aren't there for OpenJDK8.
    This allows mvn clean verify -P uitests to be run successfully on OpenJDK8.
