> Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8173409 <https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8173409>
> Webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~prr/8173409/ <http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~prr/8173409/>
> In OpenJDK the jdk.desktop module (not java.desktop) has only one method.
> It is the vestige of com.sun.awt.AWTUtilities added in JDK 6 updates.
> It provides a way to access to Component.setMixingCutoutShape
> the jdk.desktop module was created so that apps could still access it without
> using --add-exports - although at the expense of a code update.
> We'd prefer to eliminate this non-standard API and module before JDK 9
> goes final and can do so by making the above method public and standard
> As a result jdk.desktop becomes empty and can go away ..
> Swing's own internal uses have been updated and should be fully compatible
> since the implementation is unchanged.
> The existing tests which verify the API are updated to use the public API.
> They should pass as well as they ever did ..
> I did leave the AWTAccessor code in there for apps that absolutely have no way
> to recompile to the new API and need to use --add-exports for now.
> A CCC will be submitted for this change.
