Updates on Interoperability

Hi experts,

As we discussed in the EG, we would like to make JSR 277 interoperable 
with other module systems (e.g. OSGi, NetBeans, etc.). We have been 
building prototypings to figure out how it should work and to also 
validate the overall approach. Since there are many module systems out 
there and they are all implemented very differently (there are also 
multiple OSGi implementations), it requires us to build more than a few 
prototypes and the whole process takes time.

The good news is that we now have a prototype that allows JSR 277 
modules to interoperate with OSGi bundles in certain degrees, and 
another prototype that enables interoperation with Maven. I'm in the 
process of sorting out the details with the development team so we could 
have a strawman for this EG to discuss soon.
