This CR is for the preparation work for converting java web start native code to unicode.

EVALUATION Added macros in DeployPlatfom.h for windows, macosx, and unix platforms so that common javaws code can make use of them regardless of UNICODE enabled or not. For the areas which require more investigations for UNICODE conversion, use #pragma message as follows: #ifdef _UNICODE #pragma message("some message") #endif
