Review request for 8050804: (jdeps) Recommend supported API to replace use of JDK internal API

Hi Mandy,

here is a typical output - with names mangled to save

s.u.l.p.LPA (rt.jar)
   -> s.s.a.GP       JDK internal API (Use j.s.PA @since 1.1)
   -> s.u.c.CLDRLPA  JDK internal API (rt.jar)

In the first dependency line, the archive name has been replaced
by the 'Use ...' message.

I wonder whether it would be better to keep the archive name
and print the use message as additional information, in order
to be 'script friendly' so that you could use things like
| grep 'rt.jar' on the output.

best regards,

-- daniel
