jpackage: packaging a real application

Hi all,

I'm trying to use jpackage to replace deployment by Java Web Start. I 
have set up a continuous build to allow the construction of a package on 
Windows, Mac and Linux.

The latest changes to the directory change of the launch binaries and 
the change in the value of the current working directory required a 
series of modification in my build. However, there is a bug on Linux for 
the installation of the file association, see the proposed patch in 

There is another problem that seems to me to be major. It is to no 
longer possible to overload the construction of the MSI. I modified the 
code to be able to add my own main.wxs file. I think that being able to 
fully overload main.wxs is essential even if many users will just use 
the default template.
