JPackage OS specific options raise errors instead of warnings

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • CPU:
      x86_64
    • OS:
      windows_10

      Description

      ADDITIONAL SYSTEM INFORMATION :
      Tested OpenJDK 14 on Windows 10, Fedora 30 and macOS Mojave (10.14).

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      Right now, when passing Linux specific options to JPackage while launching on Windows for instance, JPackage will raise an error and stop. So when doing a cross-platform packaging solution for a Java application in Maven, I'm forced to use separate profiles and write very verbose stuff just to add 3 specific options for Linux, 2 for Windows and none for macOS.

      This will greatly simplify Maven configuration if JPackage could just raise some warnings and ignore those OS specific options targeted at the wrong OS.
