> The fix for the JDK-8187639 reimplemented the tray icon messages using the standard notification center, it worked fine on macOS 10.9. But on the new macOS, the usage of that API requests permission from the user. Since the code was added to the NSApplicationAWT this request is always shown even if the app does not use tray icons. This fix moves the code to the tray icon itself. I have tested this on macOS 11.2. It will be good if someone can check macOS 10.14 or macOS 10.15.

I've checked it on `10.15.7`.
before the fix - permission request appears immediately.
after the fix - permission request appears after using `TrayIcon`.
