      Description

      According to the JEP, it should be possible to take a previously-created application image and generate an installer.

      I tried the following:

      jpackager create-installer --app-image <image> --output <outputdir>

      and got the following error:

      ERROR: Main jar or main class or main module must be specified.
      Error: No application jars found


      This should not need to be specified, since for an app image, the entry point is the executable application launcher.
