        Description

        The compressed archive bundles we create are all tar.gz format. On Windows that's not a very common format, requiring third party applications to handle, while the zip format can be natively extracted. We should change the bundle format for the JDK on Windows to be zip.

        This only applies to the actual product distributions. We can still use the more versatile tar.gz format for test, symbols and other kinds of bundles.
