OK. That's what I suspected, unfortunately.

I think we will probably be able to get rid of our Introspector usage at
some point but the javax.el case is definitely something that's bugging me.

Well, I'm not looking at anything right now. We just wanted to not have our
Hibernate libraries (in this case Hibernate ORM via Introspector and
Hibernate Validator via javax.el) tied up to the java.desktop module so
that our users could try to deploy them on a runtime image that doesn't
have this very module.

Getting rid of the java.desktop module is IMHO one of the nice thing of the
new modular system.
