      Please find the attachment for simple normal jar (com.greetings.jar)

      Steps to reproduce

      ==========================================================
      JDK9 EXECUTION
      ==========================================================
      NOT WORKING SCENARIO

      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      STEP 1.
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

       try to execute the following command at command line
      javapackager -deploy -verbose -srcdir jars -srcfiles com.greetings.jar -BmainJar=com.greetings.jar -Bclasspath=com.greetings.jar -native dmg -outdir outdir -outfile test -BapplicationCategory=SomeCategory -name CategoryTestJDK9 -appclass com.greetings.App1

      check the attachment log "categoryJDK9.txt" for successfull execution of javapackager command.

      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      STEP 2.
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      install "dmg" file in mac using command
      hdiutil attach /export/home/gtee/ramesh/outdir/CategoryTestJDK9-1.0.dmg

      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      STEP 3.
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


      Check the Value of Key "LSApplicationCategoryType" in Info.plist
      EXPECTED VALUE: SomeCategory (passed in jdk9 javapackager command line)
      ACTUAL VALUE: public.app-category.developer-tools

      cat /Volumes/CategoryTestJDK9/CategoryTestJDK9.app/Contents/Info.plist

      Cross verified with JDK8 execution and "SomeCategory" value is observed for key "LSApplicationCategoryType" in Info.plist file
        

      java -version
      java version "1.8.0_122-ea"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_122-ea-b01)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.122-b01, mixed mode)

      ==========================================================
      JDK8 EXECUTION
      ==========================================================

      Repeat STEP 1, STEP 2, STEP 3 for JDK8 EXECUTION and you can observe value "SomeCategory" for Key "LsApplicatonCategoryType" in Info.plist


      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      STEP 4
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


      try the following command at command line with JDK8.

      javapackager -deploy -verbose -srcdir jars -srcfiles com.greetings.jar -BmainJar=com.greetings.jar -Bclasspath=com.greetings.jar -native dmg -outdir outdir -outfile test -BapplicationCategory=SomeCategory -name CategoryTestJDK8 -appclass com.greetings.App1

      Check the attachment "CategoryJDK8.txt" for successfull execution of JDK8 javapacakger command.

      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      STEP 5
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      install bundler dmg file into mac system using following command line.

      hdiutil attach /export/home/gtee/ramesh/outdir/bundles/CategoryTestJDK8-1.0.dmg
