> This change implements a simple web server that can be run on the command-line with `java -m jdk.httpserver`.
> This is facilitated by adding an entry point for the `jdk.httpserver` module, an implementation class whose main method is run when the above command is executed. This is the first such module entry point in the JDK.
> The server is a minimal HTTP server that serves the static files of a given directory, similar to existing alternatives on other platforms and convenient for testing, development, and debugging.
> Additionally, a small API is introduced for programmatic creation and customization.
> Testing: tier1-3.
