You reference a desktop bug that discusses many, many deprecations
and skara has identified https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8066622
as the issue being fixed.
Yet you propose to fix precisely one of these.
But when this is integrated that bug will be closed out as resolved.
I think you need a new bug about JUST the changes you are making.
So I don't think you should use that bug id any where in this PR.
And I'd like to hear whether you actually *tested* splashscreen with your change ? I see no sign that you did.
