With jpackage including these…

My application name showed correctly on the top menu bar and in the dock.
Whether it was from these or just jpackage

--name -n <name>
          Name of the application and/or package

I don’t know. What wasn’t showing correctly was the application names within the application menu. Like “About LoaderLaunchStub”
These looked like they were parsed from the main class name. 


After seeing this thread I found this…

Which seems to correct that. 

NSMenuFX may give you additional functionality you want but with just the above for jpackage should get you correct looking application names about everywhere.
