Stephen Colebourne: Java SE 9 - JPMS automatic modulesStephen Colebournetag:blogger.com,1999:blog-741750605858169835.post-65719857531754804712017-05-09T07:14:44Z2017-05-09T07:14:00Z

This article in my series on the Java Platform Module System (JPMS) is focussed on automatic modules. JPMS was previously known as Project Jigsaw and is the module system in Java SE 9. See also Module basics, Module naming and Modules & Artifacts.

This is the next article in a series I'm writing to help make sense of the Java Platform Module System (JPMS) in Java SE 9. JPMS was developed as Project Jigsaw. Other articles in the series are Module basics and Module naming.

After almost fifteen years I have decided to quit working on IKVM.NET. The decision has been a long time coming. Those of you that saw yesterday’s Twitter spat, please don’t assume that was the cause. It rather shared an underlying cause. I’ve slowly been losing faith in .NET.

After almost fifteen years I have decided to quit working on IKVM.NET. The decision has been a long time coming. Those of you that saw yesterday’s Twitter spat, please don’t assume that was the cause. It rather shared an underlying cause. I’ve slowly been losing faith in .NET. Looking back, I guess this process started with the release of .NET 3.5. On the Java side things don’t look much better. The Java 9 module system reminds me too much of the generics erasure debacle.

I hope someone will fork IKVM.NET and continue working on it. Although, I’d appreciate it if they’d pick another name. I’ve gotten so much criticism for the name over the years, that I’d like to hang on to it 😊

I’d like to thank the following people for helping me make this journey or making the journey so much fun: Brian Goetz, Chris Brumme, Chris Laffra, Dawid Weiss, Erik Meijer, Jb Evain, John Rose, Mads Torgersen, Mark Reinhold, Volker Berlin, Wayne Kovsky, The GNU Classpath Community, The Mono Community.

And I want to especially thank my friend Miguel de Icaza for his guidance, support, inspiration and tireless efforts to promote IKVM.

Thank you all and goodbye.

The Java Platform Module System (JPMS) is soon to arrive, developed as Project Jigsaw. This article follows the introduction and looks at how modules should be named.

The Java Platform Module System (JPMS) is the major new feature of Java SE 9. In this article, I will introduce it, leaving most of my opinions to a follow up article. This is based on these slides.
