Hi everyone, nice to meet you. 👋 I'm happy to take all your module system questions, but you can also try me on everything else from Java 8 or later, including stuff like release cadence, support, licensing, etc - no promises, but I'll do my best to answer.

Hi

This book seems to be very hiighly
valuable since  it deals with creation of jar file that is totally different from that
of our old method..Also it does not deviate from the  tradional  jar .Thus it is
like wearing different hats to suit the context So i say it is Six Thinking Hats
that was long ago very dominant .
My hats off to  you ,in wishing a very delightful  Best of the lot Cheers '

Yes, it's up to date with Java 11. That wasn't difficult, though, because there's only really one important module-system-related change between 9 and 11 and that's the removal of the Java EE modules.

And the JRE no longer being available as a standalone download. Everyone has either the JDK or a jlink packaged version for Java 11 projects.

Hey everyone, it was fun to be here. I have too many balls in the air as it is, though, so I won't regularly scan the forum. If you have any questions or want to get in touch, hit me up on Twitter - I'm @nipafx. 👋
