Thanks for the clarification. I have been looking through the source code
of your backported jpackager to gain some insight, and I should perhaps
instead be looking at the main source code for the jpackage.

I will start using this JDK12 build of jpackager and see if it has the same
issues regarding the bundle resources.
Perhaps also the core-libs-dev at is the better place to
discuss jpackage on forward. I reported some issues with jpackage some time
ago that has been added to its JDK bugs list.
