Subject Project Jigsaw: Early-Access Builds available on jdk9.java.net/jigsaw
Date Wed, 09 Sep 2015 17:18:16 GMT

Hi Mark & Gavin,

Early-access builds of JDK 9 with Project Jigsaw are available for 
download at jdk9.java.net/jigsaw <http://jdk9.java.net/jigsaw>.

The EA builds contain the latest prototype implementation of JSR 376 
<http://openjdk.java.net/projects/jigsaw/spec>, the Java Platform Module 
System,
as well as that of the JDK-specific APIs and tools described in JEP 261 
<http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/261>.

If you'd like to try out the EA builds, by far the most helpful things 
you can do are:

  *

    Try to run existing applications, without change, on these builds to
    see whether the module system, or the modularization of the
    platform, breaks your code or identifies code that depends upon
    JDK-internal APIs or other unspecified aspects of the platform.

  *

    Experiment with the module system itself, perhaps by following the
    quick start guide
    <http://openjdk.java.net/projects/jigsaw/quick-start>, and start
    thinking about how to migrate existing libraries and application
    components to modules. We hope to publish some specific migration
    tips shortly.

Please send usage questions and experience reports to the jigsaw-dev 
<http://mail.openjdk.java.net/mailman/listinfo/jigsaw-dev> list. 
Specific suggestions about the design of the module system should be 
sent to the JSR 376 Expert Group's comments list 
<mailto:jpms-spec-comments@openjdk.java.net>.

For more information please seen Mark Reinhold's mail [1]

Rgds,Rory
