        Description

        [1] Warnings text for -Xshare:cds should be updated - similar to JDK-8277241

        [2] In the "java" tool specification, under the "Creating a Shared Archive File and Using It to Run an Application", we should add information about creating CDS archives using the "jcmd" command.

        Also, since there are several methods for creating a CDS archive (-Xshare:dump vs -XX:CreateArchiveAtExit vs jcmd), we should add an overview section to compare the different methods.

        Some clean up is needed:

        - Discussion of obsolete flags (such as -XX:UseAppCDS) should be removed.

        - Discussion of uncommon error conditions (such as array classes in the classlist) should also be removed.

        (Current version: https://docs.oracle.com/en/java/javase/17/docs/specs/man/java.html#application-class-data-sharing )

        [3] The "jcmd" tool specification currently has only minimal documentation for the "VM.cds" command. More details should be added.
