IBM and Red hat to take a stand against plans to Java in the future, in different modules. Oracle does now serious allegations.
Oracle criticized IBM and Red hat for their refusal to Java in the future, modular continue. 8. June will be published the result of a Community vote JSR 376. This Java Platform Module is a Central part of Project Jigsaw, the architecture should be run by Java in the future, in the Form of individual modules.
IBM and Red hat, however, had already announced in the run-up to vote in this election against the Change. Now, Mark Reinhold, Oracle chief of the Java Platform, rails, and is called IBM’s stance with regard to the Java 9 Module System (JPMS) “disappointing,” “surprising,” and sees it as a threat to Java. The members should vote against JSR 376, would delay the further development of Java and could also hinder the Community process itself, warns Reinhold.

“Many members of the EC (Expert Group) said that we are not done yet,” countered Tim Ellison, the IBM representatives in the JPMS, in a Blog. Ellison, the development is also important, but may still be a need for improvement, and also indicates that there is little consensus.

Scott Strong of Red hat Middleware, explained that the draft in the current Version of the Apps may be to existing Java is not compatible. In addition, the new architecture has not been tested in large, complex installations. Many of these installations to be with a Jigsaw is not possible and would have to be rebuilt.
The JBoss Middleware, Red hat is based on Java. “The implementation of the Jigsaw could possibly mean for millions of users and writers in the Java Ecosystem, you need to make major changes to applications and Libraries, especially if you are dealing with Services, classloading or Reflection,” was the warning Stark.
Oracle representatives Reinhold criticized, but also Red, because it has also raised concerns about JPMS. Reinhold makes in his Blog clear that the process requires that all need to be of an opinion and the “good reason”. The ladders were awarded-wide rights and therefore, to a single group to hold members of the development to restrict and defend their own interests. It is therefore in the future, this question authority, are hazardous to the further process.
The address of Red hat directed, he declared that the Position of surprise. Because in order for the provider attempts of the non-Standard to protect compliant, modular development. Reinhold is on Red Hat’s modular WildFly Application Server is modular.
