We maintain the bundle extension so it is recognized as a bundle on Mac OS X, but if filename extensions are turned off in the finder you can't tell a JDK from a JRE.
If this hasn't been reviewed already by someone at Oracle, this looks like a good change, and will facilitate the ability to install these bundles side-by-side.
Is THIS_JDK_VERSION used anywhere else? Could it be removed at the definition point?
