    I forgot to blast this out to the group:

gradle openZip

which is part of
gradle zip
gradle all
at least in the open builds.

This target was added a month or so ago, and I just fixed  something in in, that meant it was not showing up in openZip properly.

This target builds a bundle in ./builds/[platform-]bundles/

The contents include jfxrt.jar which has been filtered in a similar fashion to the JFX product, removing some stuff that is not appropriate to a given platform. (Yes that means Monocle on non-arm platforms). The logic is pretty straight forward - ie Windows classes don't show up on a non-windows platform.

The resulting bundle *should* be able to be deployed by just unpacking it over a JDK, which is intended to simplify matters.
