Hi All, Please review a fix for the below bug.


Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8216008


Webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~sveerabhadra/8216008/webrev.00/


Since the mentioned list of assistive technologies for the system property(javax.accessibility.assistive_technologies) is loaded by jvm am unable to write a test case for this bug. The test file attached with the bug can be used for testing this fix.


This fix removes the error(class not found error) by passing an empty list to system variable javax.accessibility.assistive_technologies and does not load any assistive technologies(as the list is empty). Currently empty list produce a crash which is not required as there was no class name mentioned in the list. Please read the bug comments for more information.


Thanks and regards,
