// path is the path to javafx-swt.jar
ModuleFinder finder = ModuleFinder.of(path);
Configuration cf = Layer.boot()
    .resolveRequires(finder, ModuleFinder.of(), Set.of("javafx.swt"));

// “parent” is the class loader to which SWT types are visible
Layer layer = Layer.boot().defineModulesWithOneLoader(cf, parent);

// the class loader defining javafx.swt module
ClassLoader loader = layer.findLoader("javafx.swt”);

[1] will show more examples of Layer.
