RFE: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8249205
Webrev: https://cr.openjdk.java.net/~mr/rev/8249205/

Oracle’s legal department has advised that it is no longer necessary to
place trademark symbols after the term “Java,” nor after compound terms
that begin with “Java” (e.g., “JavaBeans,” “Java Naming and Directory
Interface,” etc.).

This doc-only patch removes those symbols, on 545 lines across 337 files.

For ease of review I’ve placed a couple of other files in the webrev

    -- Output of `diff -U0`
    -- Unique added lines only, modulo whitespace

Passes tiers 1-3 on the usual platforms.  (Yes, I’m paranoid.)
