Attempt to launch any gui application by openjdk build results in a jvm
crash on windows platform:

bin\java -jar demo\jfc\Metalworks\Metalworks.jar

Crash happens in WToolkit.initIDs() (full error log is attached).

Native frames: (J=compiled Java code, j=interpreted, Vv=VM code, C=native code)
V  [jvm.dll+0x102bf6]
C  [awt.dll+0x87f07]
j  sun.awt.windows.WToolkit.initIDs()V+0
j  sun.awt.windows.WToolkit.<clinit>()V+23

It happens because SurfaceData class can not be loaded due to failure of static initializer:

This problem seems to be caused by the fix for CR 6307603, where platform-specific rendering engine is registered as a service in shared code.

EVALUATION We need to update the shared one to remove the reference to jules and create the one referencing jules in a "solaris" specific location. Then the Makefile that copies the file needs to be updated to look in the appropriate place.
