Hi there,

Please review fix for JDK9:
bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8136763
webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~mcherkas/8136763/webrev.00/

The problem is similar to https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8081787
When user requests data for uri-list flavor, java returns xml without 
any interpretation.
It is fixed by processing xml by dragQueryFile() method.

The other problem: if several files has been copied, there're available 
two types in pasteboard for reading:
but text/uri-list is associated only with NSURLPboardType - which 
returns only first value from list of files that were copied.
To resolve this I added: 
"FILE_NAME=text/uri-list;eoln="\r\n";terminators=1" line above 
So now, java will select secend one and provide the full list of copied
