Currently the launcher used by the packager does not support ally he flags that the command line java launcher does.  One of these is the splash screen option, so you won’t be able to do this with the current Java 8 code.  The Inifinite kind launcher has the same restrictions because of the way both of the products launch the JVM.

The best thing to do would be to post a feature request to so we can prioritize it for a future release.
