RFR [9] 8150976: JarFile and MRJAR tests should use the JDK specific Version API

Currently JarFile and MRJAR tests use sun.misc.Version to retrieve the major
runtime version. They should be updated to use the new JDK specific Version

Note: There is an issue, 8144062 [1], to revisit the JDK specific Version API to
determine if it should be moved, or even standardized. The changes being
proposed here may need to be updated, in a trivial way, in the future, but this
issue is intending to break the dependency on sun.misc.Version so that
8150162 [2] can make progress. Additionally, the future refactoring will most
likely be trivial.
