    Description

      See JDK-8090136 for some of the background on this. We need to create a new jdk module for the netscape.javascript package that is used in liveconnect for AWT and FX applets (to allow an applet to access the applet web page via JavaScript), and also for FX WebVIew in the JavaScript bridge.

      The implementation of the JSObject.getWindow(Applet) method will need to move to a class in the plugin module. This should be a reasonably straight-forward refactoring.

      This new module will need to be moved to the (open) jdk repo so that we don't have a situation where the open part of FX depends on a closed module to build it.
