Following JDK-8004963: "URLConnection, downgrade normative reference to
${java.home}/lib/content-types.properties", this bug [1] moves
content-types.properties out of the image lib directory and into
resources.jar ( to be loaded as a resources file ). This approach is
acceptable, since the file is not expected to be user editable.


MimeTable.save(String) can be simply removed since it is never called,
and editing the default table is not supported.

The motive for this bug is the modular JDK where we need the flexibility
to put anything that is module-private into a module-private location.
In this case it would appear that the above files are not a supported
interface and so should move to a location that should be read as
