Since you think they should be the same, how about creating a private method that includes the VM.initLevel and bundles.computeIfAbsent calls? We'll let Adam to decide if getString() can also call it.

Thanks. I've updated JDK-8172808 
<> to indicate that 
there is some potential for refactoring here.

Though it seems like there is an issue with ResourceMgr::getString in 
your latest diff. The bundle is loaded, but it is not stored in the map 
(unless I'm missing it). So the resource bundle would be loaded for 
every call to this method.
