Looks quite good and much cleaner.


    cls = Class.forName("sun.awt.motif." + enc);

Should we do something about this Class.forName?

modules.xml - you can take out <depend>jdk.charsets</depend>
from java.desktop module.  You can verify the module access
by make verify-modules target.

There are tests referencing sun.awt.motif that I assume you will
update and send out another webrev?

Tests under test/java/awt are expected and surprisingly there are
tests in test/sun/nio/cs:


thank you for doing this.
