Thanks Volker,

I agree with your change, or you can take the code from ImageBuilder. 
Either is fine with me.

     private void setExecutable(Path file) {
         try {
             Set<PosixFilePermission> perms = 
             Files.setPosixFilePermissions(file, perms);
         } catch (IOException ioe) {
             throw new UncheckedIOException(ioe);
