Subject JSR277 (Modules)
Date Wed, 15 Jun 2005 10:52:59 GMT
The module system JSR was just posted on JCP
http://www.jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=277

This is targeted for J2SE7.

At least someone working on Harmony should be involved.

The JSR proposal doesn't get into mechanics or
the solution space much, but notice the line:

   We also expect the Java Module System to expose the public J2SE APIs
   as a virtual module in order to prevent unwanted usage of the private
   APIs in the implementation.

which will by necessity entail new VM support (and, I strongly
suspect, some syntactic language support.)
