Please review the fix for jdk9.

Some of JavaBeans persistence delegates tries to access the private data 
in the java.base module. This functionality does not work on the latest 
jigsaw build. So such delegates should be removed. The possible solution 
for applications is to provide this delegates ourself. For example 
CheckedList_PersistenceDelegate tries to access the "type" which was 
passed to the constructor of CheckedList. So the user who create this 
CheckedList should provide delagate which will know what "type" should 
be used.

A separate bug was filed [1] to check is it possible to provide this via 
JavaBeans or not. The fix will be pushed to the client ws.
