May 23, 2007

ABSTRACT

The JSR 277 (Java Module System) specification seeks to address many issues associated with Java Archive (JAR) files, including the lack of version control, the difficulties in distributing multiple JAR files for deployment, the classpath hell, the JAR file hell, and the extension hell that have been well known to many developers on the Java platform for years. The specification defines an architecture with first-class modularity, packaging, and deployment support in the Java platform, including a distribution format, a versioning scheme, a repository infrastructure, and runtime support.
