We've been down this road in the distant past with "requires local" and
I don't think we want to go there again :-)
We've worked through many testing examples with the current design and
prototype and haven't run into any major issues. The main thing to say
is that TestNG, JUnit and other testing frameworks don't know about
modules yet but we can get existing versions to work okay, it just needs
command-line options that will look complicated at first, esp. when
compiling or injecting test classes into existing modules. I think we
should be confident that the tools and plugins will make this much
easier in time. Just another reason why it's so critical to have tools
and eco system working with us as the module system design (and
implementation) moves forward.
