Command Line Tool For Pre-Created JRE Bundles
To automate the creation of pre-created JRE bundles, you can
use the command line utility

The available options are:
-h, --help Displays this help. -o, --output Output directory, default is the current directory. -v, --version=<VERSION> JRE version to be used in the bundle file name. The default is the version as reported by the JRE. -i, --id Sets custom id for bundle file name.
