> In JLS section 4.1 ("The ClassFile structure") for SE 11, it states:
You mean JVMS, not JLS. See the text under Table 4.1-B: "The ACC_MODULE
flag indicates that this class file defines a module, not a class or
interface. If the ACC_MODULE flag is set, then special rules apply to
the class file which are given at the end of this section. If the
ACC_MODULE flag is not set, then the rules immediately below the current
paragraph apply to the class file."
The rules at the end of the section mandate that super_class is zero for
an ACC_MODULE class file.
