This is a bulk packager integration from the packager sandbox to the JavaFX Sandbox, please review.


There are three changes outside of the fxpackager module that I think Kevin needs to give his approval for.

Two changes are in the build.gradle.  The first adds a concept of classesModuleExclude which is a regexp for files to exclude from the modular jar. This is to support creating the ant jar outside of the module system so that ant can read the required types and classes.

The second change is to introduce JDK9_MODULES, read off of an environmental variable.  This should point to your jmods directory (not explored modules, this must be jmods).  This is to support the packagerdev target which now needs a pointer to the jmods which as of yet does not have a standard location relative to the JDK/JRE.

The third change is the addition of another module-info.java.extra file.  This one exposes the invocation API for JDeps to packager so the detectmodules can use it to sniff out modules from the classpath.

The remainder of the changes are internal to the fxpackager modules and represent contributions from Chris Bensen, Dmitry Cherepanov, and myself finishing out the last details for JEP275.  This patch should make it feature complete (but not bug complete, we got another milestone for that).
