Alexey Utkin - would you mind reviewing this?
I'd like to change the implementation of the AWT data transfer API so
that it doesn't require RMI to be present. In other words, if the
application is not using remote interfaces then it shouldn't matter if
java.rmi.Remote is accessible or not and
DataFlavor.isFlavorRemoteObjectType will always return false. If the
application is using remote interfaces then it requires RMI to be
present and everything works as it does now. The webrev with the changes
I didn't find any tests that exercise this code in the jtreg/regression
suite but Girish Ramachandran helped me on this so I'm confident that it
doesn't introduce any regressions.
