I cannot confirm that it works on 10.14 since I do not have such a system, this is why in the description of this PR I requested to check the fix by someone on 10.14/10.15. Thanks to Alexander who confirm it on 10.15.

To test this functionality the user will need to enable the notification center, which should be disabled by default for the execution of our tests, then checks that the "Do not disturb" is not set for the current time, remove the java from the allow/disallow list. And then the user should return all that back. If some step will be skipped it will affect the tests executed after. I prefer do not to request that.

I know, this information is already in the jbs. When we will move further from the macOS10.14 in our JDK trains we probably should migrate to the new API.
