Does com.acme.mod at 3.1 have an entry point? -- just asking that as maybe
all you need to do is read its configuration and that will give you the
set of contexts and in turn the set of modules. Alternatively you can
run the resolver and generate the configuration (which may be what you
are doing now?).

This should work.

The jdk.boot/jdk.base issue will go away once the views/exports work is

Can you explain what you are looking to do?
