Right. I see it now. If you have no providers - then the old
code will be executed - which should still work for now.

So not pushing the META-INF/services files sounds fine.

>>> Once we move to modules then these service configuration files will go away. The resolver will build a service-use graph based on the provides/uses in the module descriptors and that will link the JNDI module to the providers. Pavel just needs a short term solution and having all the providers in one file is okay for that. A better short term solution is to just concatenate them in the build, we are already doing this in the jigsaw/m2 forest for the JDI connectors.
