This is a review request for the Initial changes for JEP 201: Modular Source Code [1].

There are a number of individuals responsible for these changes. Some, possibly not all, are explicitly listed in the To section of this mail, and they will help address any comments arising from this review request.

For the purposes of review, the actual source file moves have been omitted from the webrev below, with the exception of any source file that has a change to it’s actual content. The new location of the source files can be determined from JEP 201 [1] and JEP 200 "The Modular JDK" [2], or by browsing the staging forest [3].


Due to the significant impact of these changes, a JDK 9 promotion has been tentatively reserved for their integration. All comments are welcome, although given the nature of the changes then we might have to create separate issues in JIRA to address some of them later in jdk9/dev..
