Hi all,

I used a recent jdeps (from jdk9-ea135) to check the Eclipse GEF code base and was astonished to see that all dependencies to javafx.embed.swt.* now seem to be regarded as JDK internal API. I assume this is just a temporal inconsistency. Therefore, let me ask when it is planned to transfer the javafx.swt module into a proper named JIGSAW module to resolve this. The Eclipse community relies on using the javafx.swt module in an OSGi environment (see, and it would certainly be good if conformance tests could be started as early as possible.

Best Regards,
