Modular java software using jars

Im currently developing a software application in java. This applicaton contains many modules.

What I would like to do ulitmatly is at the end of my project have:


My question is can I somehow have these modules communicate with eachoter? Meaning have module1, 2 and 3 act as one jar but in physically slit in three? can this be done?

The reason I wish to do this is to example send client updates of module2.jar withouht having to worry about module1.jar and module3.jar. I don't want to have to send an update of the entire project it is to large.

Please don't crosspost, i.e. don't post exactly the same question in multiple forums just to attract more attention.
