I was playing around with Java9 a bit yesterday things worked fine but
what disturbs me a bit is that I need to export the package with my
Application-Subclass because naturally Java9 can not create an instance
of none-exported class with reflection.

Although not being a big problem it disturbed me a bit and from my basic
understanding I think it should be possible to introduce a 3rd variant
of Application.launch() who looks like this:


This way no reflection is needed by the jfx bootstrap code.
