Update boot loader to support modular image

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description


      Moving to a modular image will require that class loading in the VM will need to be updated to support the new format.

      It is likely that co-bundled components (plugin/webstart in particular) will still have JAR files in the modular image and so it will still be necessary to support loading of class files from JAR files on the boot class path (it will be needed for -Xbootclasspath too).
