> The approach to have javafx.swt be an automatic module that can access org.eclipse.swt.* (that may be from an unnamed module) sounds reasonable.  I wonder what the JAR file should be named -  javafx.swt.jar or javafx-swt.jar?  They both have the same module name “javafx.swt”.

Filenames with two dots are a little odd, so I went with the dash. It 
doesn't much matter, though.

Right. I noted this in the JBS evaluation and will remove all when I 
post the final webrev.

The check to compare the class name with “javafx.embed.swt.FXCanvas” to derermine whether qualified exports should be added.  You can consider checking the caller's module name as a starter.  I know you are planning to look into the integrity check as a follows up.

I had considered adding the check for the module name, but was concerned 
about the OSGi case, as mentioned by Tom Schindl in the bug report, in 
which they add the jar file via a custom classloader; the concern is 
that there is no support in the JDK to make it an automatic module in 
this case. I will file a follow-up issue to improve the integrity checking.

Actually, we can't do this yet, because we still build and test with JDK 
9 build 109 which doesn't have support for the module system. Until we 
upgrade to a JDK with the module system enabled we need this to be a 
silent no-op or all of our tests will fail.
