This looks good to me.  Alan raises a good question whether jdk.OracleVersion is intended to be pushed to OpenJDK.

We will need to find a home for this jdk.* API since java.base only exports Java SE API per the design principles in JEP 200 The Modular JDK.  It’s fine to file an issue to follow up this.   W.r.t. the docs build, jdk is listed in top/make/common/NON_CORE_PKGS.gmk but there is no target in make/Javadoc.gmk building it.  You will also need to find a docs page to publish this new API as well (the current way is a page linked from the layer cake and this may be changed).
