      Description

      The java.nio.file API (and related zipfs file system) provide a better, more functional, and simpler API than the mix of java.io.File, java.util.JarFile, and private internal support for reading zip files currently found in javac.

      We should convert JavacFileManager to use java.nio.file internally.

      See JDK-8059977 for the related bug, regarding the use of java.nio.file in the public API (i.e. StandardFileManager.)
