Description
$jdk/src/jdk.deploy.osx/macosx/classes/apple/applescript is to be removed.
Comments
Draft release notes: Apple script engine implementing javax.script engine API has been removed without any replacement. AppleScript engine has flip flopped between working and broken many times.The services configuration (META-INF/services) file was missing and only worked by accident when installing JDK 7 or JDK 8 on systems that had Apple's version of AppleScriptEngine.jar already on the system.
