We are using the javapackager through the gradle/maven javafx plugin, to create:
* Executable JAR: When we went from Swing to JavaFX the maven jar
plugin could not create an executable JAR capable to start the JavaFX
* Native executable bundle: RPM (Linux), EXE (Windows), PKG (Mac)
* Java Web Start bundle
