    Description

      JDK tools support java.util.spi.ToolProvider interface. As part of ToolProvider support, javac supports @argfile for programmatic invocation. Similar support has been requested for other tools (see JDK-8225560 for jlink). If com.sun.tools.javac.main.CommandLine is refactored into a shared module (jdk.internal.opt? or another separate new module?), all JDK tools can use the same and get uniform support for command line parsing.
