Just to follow-up on my previous mail about integration into JDK 9 [1].

So far so good. All the changes are in the staging forest (jigsaw/m3). 
The quality/test team in Oracle are testing builds from the staging 
forest and we'll decide next Tuesday (March 22) on whether to push to 
jdk9/jdk9 or not.

Assuming it goes ahead then the module system will be the only change in 
this build. We will aim to sync up jdk9/dev as soon as jdk-9+111 has 
been tagged and the other team forests will follow. There will be merge 
conflicts to resolve in several areas but we aren't expecting too many 
significant issues.
