JDK 9 Early Access with Project Jigsaw build b36 is available on
The goal of Project Jigsaw  is to design and implement a standard
module system for the Java SE Platform,
and to apply that system to the Platform itself and to the JDK.
As described in JEP 220 , this build provides a new runtime image
structure. For example, this new runtime
image does not install an rt.jar file or a tools.jar file.
Please refer to Project Jigsaw's updated project pages  &  and
Mark Reinhold's announcement email 
for further details.
We encourage library and application developers to test existing code
against these builds, with an eye toward
the incompatible changes listed at the end of JEP 220 . Comments,
questions, and suggestions are
welcome on the jigsaw-dev mailing list or else submit bug reports via
