Please review the jpackage fix for bug [1] at [2].

This is a fix for the JDK-8200758-branch branch of the open sandbox 
repository (jpackage).

This fix:

Adds "app-image" as a valid value for "--package-type" options, meaning 
build an application image instead of a package.

Changes the default value of "--package-type" to a platform dependent 
default package type.
