      Description

      The module loader would be able to load (at minimum) the following modules:

      java.base
      java.compiler
      java.datatransfer
      java.desktop
      java.instrument
      java.jnlp
      java.logging
      java.management
      java.management.rmi
      java.naming
      java.prefs
      java.rmi
      java.scripting
      java.se
      java.security.jgss
      java.security.sasl
      java.smartcardio
      java.sql
      java.sql.rowset
      java.xml
      java.xml.crypto
      

      The following modules are already deprecated and should be excluded (for now):

      java.activation
      java.corba
      java.se.ee
      java.transaction
      java.xml.bind
      java.xml.ws
      java.xml.ws.annotation
      jdk.policytool
      

      On Java 8, the loader should be implemented by way of a system dependency which delegates the exact paths of the given module (these can be hard-coded in the approprate JDKSpecific class). On Java 9, it should be implemented using the MODULES-254 solution.

      The system dependency methods should then be deprecated, so that users can move away from using javax.api, sun.jdk.api, etc. kinds of modules, towards using the standard module names instead.

      The list is not including any jdk.* modules yet. These can be added on an as-needed basis; in particular, they may have different names and/or contents depending on the JDK vendor. The goal would be to provide, on a per-vendor basis, a consistent experience between Java 8 and Java 9 versions.
