      Description

      This is a list of tasks/things to check for the Java 9/10/11 update:

      • check that the Windows vm launcher correctly identifies usable installed VMs. (Makefile REQUIREDJAVA was changed from 1.8 to 10, is that valid/correct?)
      • revisit whether Linux/OpenJDK still needs to add jfxrt.jar (or something else...) to command line. Old code is still present, in launch scripts and in bluej.Boot. (Note there is now code to add bundled javafx onto the classpath. Still need to sort it out for .deb-based package and generic installer).
      • generic installer now (for Java 9/10) checks for a file called "jdk.deploy.jar" in it. Check that it exists in JDK 11.
      • bluej.utility.Utility.appToFront() - has specialised code for Windows, but now using java.awt.Desktop we can probably make this platform agnostic (and fold the method into its callers).
