The idea here is to have our sources follow the
recommended order fom the JLS which is further documented here

For background this was applied to core-libs here :

The script was checked in here :

It was proposed to run it on the rest of the JDK here :

What I am updating here is all the files under src/java.desktop which
is a decent-sized chunk.: 324 files. I recommend looking at the 
jdk.patch file

I have checked the changes myself visually but also used JPRT to
make sure that no introduced syntax error causes a build failure.

Separately 2 minor changes to closed source files have been sent for 
internal review.
