Subject jmod and jlink support
Date Sun, 25 Nov 2018 23:27:02 GMT
Has there been discussion or a bug filed regarding adding tasks to 
support jmod and jlink?  Now that there is no longer a separate JRE and 
the new method of distributing standalone Java applications requires 
jlink, this seems increasingly important.

I’ve written tasks (and corresponding tests and documentation) for both 
of them, for my own personal use, but I didn’t want to make a pull 
request without knowing if this has been addressed already.

I wasn’t sure whether the code is required to be Java 8 compatible.  At 
the very least, I need to use the java.util.spi.ToolProvider class to 
access jmod and jlink functionality, but if Java 8 compatibility is 
necessary, I can always do it with reflection.
