The enhancement got the approval (from Andrew Hughes) and my plan was
to get to a decision as to the *how* on the 8u review thread. Right now
there are two options:
A) Mimic JDK 9+
CLI launch => $ jhsdb clhsdb
GUI launch => $ jhsdb hsdb
That's what the current webrev does.
B) Create separate launchers for CLI/GUI. Perhaps this?
CLI launch => $ jclhsdb
GUI launch => $ jhsdb
B) is Kevin's proposal.
