mvn-jlink 1.0.0

Java provides some modularity since Java 9 (project Jigsaw) and it provides way to build JDK images containing only needed modules. There are two nice tool in JDK called jdeps and jlink which helps in build new JDK image but I use maven to build my own OSS projects and I wanted some way to automate process. So I have developed and published maven plug-in MVN-JLINK which can call jdeps and jlink (and any tool provided by JDK) and even it can load and unpack OpenJDK builds from Adopt and Bellsoft (Liberica).
