In addition to the java executable itself, the modular runtime image 
contains other files. You can find a description of its contents here: .

Go, like C, C++, etc. produces a native binary from native object files. 
Embedding resources into such an executable binary requires those 
resources to be pre- or post-processed in some form, to make them fit in 
as native object files, for example. A longer article on the various 
options regarding Go can be found here: .
