"Applications in a module": What would you think about changing the 
heading to "Deploying an Applications as a module" to make it a bit 
clearer what the section is about? A partial code example might be 
useful to inline too, it could be as simple as:

module foo.app {
     exports com.foo to javax.graphics;
