This looks better.  Thanks for the update.

The getSupportedLocaleString method in both EnLocaleDataMetaInfo and 
NonEnLocaleDataMetaInfo has the javadoc that missing the description.

sun.util.locale.provider is a package in java.base and 
NonEnLocaleDataMetaInfo has to be in a different package as it's in the 

Previously the list of locales was generated at build time. 
NonEnLocaleDataMetaInfo now hardcodes the list in the source.  How often 
do we need to update this list?  Just wonder whether there is a better 
way to maintain this list and catch regression.  You have a new test  
Bug8038436.java to compare the golden list which is good.  However, the 
golden list is hardcoded too that seems to be error-prone.  Does 
Bug8038436.java pass with jdk9?

The current source layout implies the jdk.localedata module contains 
both cldr and localedata while they are generated as two separate JAR 
files in the jdk image.  Would you propose to split CLDR out as 
jdk.cldrdata?  Currently you have two service config files providing the 
same service type and leads to the awkward location.

If they should be kept under jdk.localedata, we could live with the two 
service config files until the modular image is in place.

I would suggest renaming
