Tracking OpenJDK 9's usage and adoption rate via Maven Central

Martijn Verburg
Hi all,

Several Adopt members have gotten together to look at answering the
questions of what percentage of the most popular (TBD what most popular is)
projects on Maven central can:

1. Run on Java9+
2. Use Automatic-Module-Name
3. Use module-info.java

As a side effect we're also working with Sonatype to improve Maven
central's indexing to include searching for modules.

As a follow on to this the LJC will start a crowdfunding campaign to bring
any popular libraries that aren't Java 9+ compatible up to date and
possible look at applying at least an Automatic-Module-Name as a starting
point to modularity.

See the kickoff doc
<https://docs.google.com/document/d/1rT9tWLdH0zPbQaZ6-eAJ5NKU6NI78ATcsXSWhLYhkw8/edit#>
for
details.

Cheers,
Martijn
