Subject Re: Controlling Load Order of Modules
Date Thu, 18 Feb 2016 14:01:48 GMT
Does this not depend on the classloader rather than the package being 

It seems that any solution that take advantage of the "current" 
classloader will be fragile and subject to sudden failure if the JVM 
updates the classloader to one with a different strategy.

Can you not write your own classloader that forces the order that you want?

Never tried any of this so take these suggestions as being worth no more 
than they cost!
