Hi Ramanand,


   28  * @run main Bug8141243
   29  * @run main/othervm -Djava.locale.providers=COMPAT Bug8141243

"COMPAT" is a new name of "JRE" in JDK 9. It's not supported in 8u. I 
think COMPAT is slightly ignored and that it becomes the same thing as 
line 28. Line 29 should be removed.

Otherwise, the fix looks OK to me.
