      Description

      When there is a "--files" argument, all the jar files listed as input files are added to the classpath used to launch the app (added to the "app.classpath" line under "[Application]" in the application's ".cfg" file).

      Without a "--files" arg, the entire "--input" directory's contents are copied to the app image, but only the jars directly in the top level of "--input" are added to the "app.classpath in the config file.

      as a result a simple app such as the following will run fine:
      jpackage create-image \
      --input input \
      --output output \
      --name sub \
      --class myapp.hello \
      --main-jar 'myapp\myapp.jar' \
      --files 'myapp\myapp.jar' \

      whereas the following app will not run:
      jpackage create-image \
      --input input \
      --output output \
      --name sub1 \
      --class myapp.hello \
      --main-jar 'myapp\myapp.jar' \
