Please review the fix for jdk 8.
DynamicLayout functionality was added to the LWToolkit. All new methods 
just a stubs, because on macosx "live-resize" is always enabled.
But I have doubts about isDynamicLayoutActive. Because according to the 
"Returns whether dynamic layout of Containers on resize is currently 
active (both set in program ( |isDynamicLayoutSet()| ) , and supported 
by the underlying operating system and/or window manager)."
And in the javadoc of setDynamicLayout:
"On these platforms where dynamic layout during resizing is not 
supported (or is always supported), setting this property has no effect."

In the current fix i assume that we can ignore user's data in 
isDynamicLayoutActive if DynamicLayout is always supported.
