<Beans Dev> [9] Review Request: 8143346 Broken link in java.beans.XMLEncoder

I don't know that there is any actual problem with any of the new URLs here
but I don't have much information about what is and is not supposed to work.

In particular
1) Is the  java.sun.com -> oracle.com redirect considered to be something
we can rely on for ever ? Given the number of references to the former
it may need to be.

2) But on the other hand, is there a policy of updating the links as 
time permits ?

3) I don't know how permanent names like "persistence4-140124.html" are
considered to be ? I would guess this is a generated name and perhaps next
time the web page "tree" is re-generated it'll be a different name ?

4) Although I only see it in a comment, it is odd in JDK 9 docs to 
reference JDK 8:-

+// <https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/technotes/guides/access/index.html>

But I don't think we can do anything about that.

5) || src/demo/share/jvmti/index.html is presumably owned by someone else ..
but I don't suppose they will mind you fixing it.

For 1 -> 3 can we ask the docs team ?
