I haven't looked at your project but just to make you aware that JDK 9
has a linker tool called "jlink" that assembles (and optionally
trasforms/optimizes) a set of modules to create a custom run-time image.
There are aggregator modules defined for each of the Compact Profiles so
it's possible to create a run-time image that is equivalent to the
Compact Profiles defined by Java SE 8. More details in JEP 282 .
