      Description

      jexec was introduced early in the jdk to improve deployment of jar files, and all it really did was exec "java -jar $", this was required so that
      one could double click the jar file to execute in a UI such as a file manager, or do % java foo.jar.

      The only platform it is supported on is Linux research the usage and try to deprecate this.
