I've just tried building with Java 11 and performing a very simple smoke
test (does the WebSocket snake game work).

The only issue I found was that the removal of the module
meant that the utility class we use for working with the Symantec code
signing service would not compile. This blocked the main compilation
step as we compile everything together.

I have fixed this by pulling in the CDDL licensed SAAJ API 1.3.5 JAR.

This doesn't impact the overall licensing of Tomcat since the library is
only used to build/run the code signing tool used during the release
process. (And even if it did, we have other CDDL licensed dependencies
so it wouldn't be a big deal.)

*Draft JEP: Deprecate pack200, unpack200 tools and related APIs. [1]
This draft JEP [2] proposes to deprecate the pack200 APIs and tools in
the JDK. As outlined in the JEP, the usefulness of this technology
have diminishing returns, the components using them are being removed
and connectivity speeds have improved by leaps and bounds,
since its inception.  Feedback appreciated via
