        Description

        The javadoc for the java.awt.Toolkit getDefaultToolkit() method claims:
        ----------------------
        If there is no "java.awt.headless" or it is set to false and there is a system property named "awt.toolkit", that property is treated as the name of a class that is a subclass of Toolkit; otherwise the default platform-specific implementation of Toolkit is used.
        ----------------------

        It should be reconsidered is this property still useful after the modularization updated in JDK 9.
