jdk.jpackager.runtime, removes the JNLPConverter demo, adds an initial 
set of automated tests, and contains fixes to the following issues:

JDK-8213324 jpackager deletes existing app directory without warning
JDK-8213166 jpackager --argument arg is broken
JDK-8213163 --app-image arg does not work creating exe installers
