  • Reinhold Publishes Open Letter to JCP Pleading That JPMS (Jigsaw) Is Approved

    Mark Reinhold has published an open letter to the JCP Executive Committee. In the letter he expresses surprise that IBM has decided to vote against the JSR, and argues that RedHat’s decision to vote "no" is motivated by a desire to "preserve and protect their home-grown, non-standard module system, which is little used outside of the JBoss/Wildfly ecosystem".

  • IBM and Red Hat to Vote "No" on Java Modules (Jigsaw)

    InfoQ has previously reported on the developing situation regarding JSR 376 - the Java Platform Module System, commonly called "Project Jigsaw". Now, in a highly unusual move, IBM and Red Hat have both publicly announced that they will vote "no" on Jigsaw in its current form.

  • Oracle Confirms Delayed Schedule for Java 9

  • Bundle.update: OSGi in Java EE, JSR 294 Marked Inactive

    Since the last bundle.update, a number of interesting events have occurred in the OSGi and modular Java space. JSR 294 has been (automatically) marked as inactive, the Enterprise Expert Group has released draft 4, WebSphere will allow direct running of OSGi applications and upcoming OSGi conferences have early bird discounts and call for speakers finishing soon.

  • Bundle.update: the Current State of OSGi

    It's been a month since OSGi 4.2 was released. What's been happening in the OSGi space since then?

  • Can the Simple Module System save JSR294?

    Over the past month there has been a lot of debate on the current state of the Java Modularity working group (JSR 294). Although the JSR tries to find common ground between different module systems (notably Sun's Project Jigsaw and OSGi), the current set of proposals are overly complex and introduce the world's first concept of a meta-module system. Can the Simple Module System save JSR294?
