JavaFX Deployment

I agree with this advice, too. The easiest way is to take the javafx 
jmods and use 'jlink' to produce the JDK you need. If your application 
is modularized, you can jlink your app into the java runtime image and 
only pull in the modules you need.

If you have more advanced needs, I note that we are looking to add a 
'jpackager' tool as a replacement for the javapackager (which was 
delivered along with javafx in JDK 10). You can follow the discussion on 
core-libs-dev [1].
