is this the right channel to report early JDK 9 issues (or should I use one of the jdk9 mailing lists instead)?
javaws under Linux worked well with 9-ea+149, but not longer with 9-ea+151. There is no crash, but javaws always returns with the help screen and it doesn't matter, which options are specified (e.g. a valid JNLP URL or just the -viewer argument).
added: 9-ea+151 javaws.exe under windows is working, only the Linux version didn't start.

that sounds like a regression. Please file an issue at bugs.java.com.
