Java SE: Modularity beyond Java Kernel


The Java Kernel feature of Java SE 6u10 attracted a lot of attention when it got released. A modularization of the JRE binary at installation time, it slims the download of the JRE by 10MB, for quicker download, installation and gets that first app up and running quicker. With the upcoming release of JavaFX, and the auto-update of 6u10 early in December, its sure to reach hundreds of millions of desktops.

But when you read Mark's new blog on the monolithic JDK, you see that the Java Kernel is just first step along a path towards a full modularization of the JDK. Not just at installation time, which is just one moment in the lifetime of the JRE (albeit one especially important to consumers installing the JRE for the first time). But every phase in the JRE lifecycle: right through the source code at development time to the deployed binaries running your applications at runtime and every stage between.

The tenor is just clearing his throat. More next week.
