Please review the changes to the following issue:

Bug : https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8166138 


The proposed fix is located at:

Webrev : http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~rpatil/8166138/webrev.00/


As per ISO 8601 standards, an offset of zero, in addition to having the special representation "Z", can also be stated numerically as "+00:00", "+0000", or "+00" [1].  With this fix, Instant.parse() can parse a String containing the zero offsets in any of these three forms. Any other offset apart from "Z", "+00:00", "+0000", or "+00" will not be accepted in the input string to be parsed.
