JDK-8212780: JEP 343: Packaging Tool Implementation

I noticed in WindowsRegistry.java we're actually making calls to reg(.exe) and parsing the output/result.  Is this preferred over making direct calls to the WINAPI functions via JNI?  (Also, would this be a security concern if another reg.exe is in the PATH before the Windows system one?)


131                 ProcessBuilder security = new ProcessBuilder(buildOptions);
 132                 exec(security, false, false, ps);

the variable name security for the ProcessBuilder seems like it may have been some leftover from refactoring...

This is an update to the Request For Review of the implementation of the Java Packager Tool (jpackager) as described in JEP 343: Packaging Tool <https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8200758>

This refresh renames the packages used to jdk.jpackager and 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
JDK-8212089 Prepare packager for localization
JDK-8212537 Create method and class description comments for main functionality
JDK-8213332 Create minimal automated tests for jpackager
JDK-8213333 Fix issues found in jpackager with automated tests
JDK-8213394 Stop using Log.info() except for expected output.
JDK-8213345 Secondary Launchers broken on mac.
JDK-8213156 rename packages for jpackager
JDK-8213244 Fix all warnings in jpackager java code
JDK-8212143 Remove native code that supports UserJvmOptionsService
JDK-8213162 Association description in Inno Setup cannot contain double quotes

The following additional issues are targeted to be address in the next few weeks:
JDK-8212936     Makefile and other improvements for jpackager
JDK-8212164     resolve jre.list and jre.module.list
JDK-8213392     Enhance --help and --version
JDK-8208652     File name is not passed to main() via file association on OS X
JDK-8212538     Determine standard way to determine if a Modular jar
JDK-8213558     Create more unit tests
