Hello all since my job is to write java tutorials I have to confess I am lost on some topics about the module system. Here is a first concern: - I used to teach to deploy resources in an additional jar at deploy time - so if a code requesting a resource was in package/directory com.mycomp.biz then the resource was in a com.mycomp.biz.config directory ... in a different jar which could be written by the "deployment programmer".
with the module system I do not know how to have something similar. Well may be the resource could be in a non-modular jar in the class-path (or added by patch-module) but realy I don't know what could be the best option (put it in a modular jar? but then how to write the module-info, how to update the module-info of other modules - something done by the deployment programmer- ? how to start the jar: from the command line? but then can we still have a "clickable" jar? the doc at http://openjdk.java.net/projects/jigsaw/quick-start is good but lacks this kind of detail. Thanks for any hint
