Dear All,

    Please review the patch for jdk9.
    Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8055197
    Webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~rchamyal/ambarish/8055197/webrev.00/

    - If text containing new line character is set to TextField, Text after new line character was terminated.
    - Issue occurs only on windows.

    - For windows new line character is   ‘\r\n’.
    - For windows code this new line character was not replaced by space character.
    - Other platforms replace the EOL character by space character.

    - Added code to TextComponent.java to remove EOL on java side before passing to peer.
      => Added a private method replaceEOL() , which replaces EOL by space.
      => removeEOL will be called by newly added TextComponent construcotr and setText()

    - The text variable on in TextComponent.java & on string displayed on native side will be same.

Many Thanks,
