I would like to propose the following Draft JEP [1] for discussion.

JDK-8200758: Packaging Tool

This is intended as a JDK-scope replacement for the existing 
javapackager tool that ships with Oracle JDK 10 (and earlier Oracle JDK 
releases), and was delivered as part of the JavaFX build. The 
javapackager tool has been removed from Oracle JDK 11 along with the 
removal of JavaFX.

Comments on this JEP are welcome. It is currently not targeted for a 
specific release, but we are aiming for JDK 12.
