        Description

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
        In Java 8u45 sun.awt.X11FontManager was made final. This causes application using OpenJDK Caciocavallo to crash, because sun.awt.peer.cacio.CacioFontManager extends X11FontManager.

        A refactor the enables fixing the problem was made for Java 9:
        http://bugs.java.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=8072436

        Please backport this change to Java 8!

        JUSTIFICATION :
        This is needed to enable running UI unit tests on Linux servers without X11 running.
