As i've read the mail of Sander,
the module which is required statically is present in the module path but not resolved by default, you have to use --add-modules. But maybe i'm wrong ?

You're not wrong, see the email exchange with Stephen as well. Just a `requires static` does not cause a module to be resolved from the module path, there needs to be a non-static requires or --add-modules for the optional module. This is intentional behaviour according to the proposal: http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/jpms-spec-experts/2016-June/000306.html
