Description
Packer and Unpacker have a highly undesirable dependency on java.beans classes that is problematic for modules. It is likely that we will need to remove these methods in Java SE 9 (assuming approvals, etc.). In preparation for this it will be necessary to deprecate these methods in Java SE 8 (again, pending approvals) so that developers/users of these methods know they are going away.

SQE has looked at this doc change and decided no additional tests are needed.
