Description
The fix for 6351654 removed a dependency on AWT from JDK 8.  This is a request to (a) port the same infrastructure changes to JDK 7 so a similar solution can be used there (change SharedSecrets, AppContext, and add JavaAWTAccess) and (b) if applicable or time and resources allow, change TimeZone to remove the AWT dependency.  Here is the webrev for the JDK8 fix:
