Please review the updated jpackage fix for bug [1] at [3].

Functional change:  If the default package type is called for, but for 
some reason the default package type is not supported on this machine, 
it will be an error (we will not try to build any other package type)

Typo fixed in comment, and small fix to RuntimeTest.java.
