Aligned with spring-projects/spring-boot#12160, let's revisit all the Collection.toArray call in the codebase and consistently use the toArray(new T[0]) pattern over pre-initialized arrays with a given length. In contrast to the established latter pattern, the former turns out to be more performant on modern JVMs since it doesn't initialize the array with null values first and allows for using efficient array cloning mechanisms underneath.

Affects: 5.0.4

We're also consistently using StringUtils.toStringArray and ClassUtils.toClassArray across the codebase now, as shortcuts with improved readability. ClassUtils.toClassArray was missed in the nullability revision and got aligned as a non-null variant a la StringUtils.toStringArray now.
