Javadoc fails to link to modular jars from non-modular project

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      The javadoc tool fails with "The code being documented uses packages in the unnamed module, but the packages defined in $URL are in named modules." when a non-modular project tries to link to a mdular one.

      See attached zip. Error seen on Windows with JDK 11.0.6 and 13.0.1.

      With a mix of modular and non-modular projects, being able to link to anything seems like a necessity. In this case, the project being linked to (Joda-Convert) has a module-info.class and modular Javadoc.

      This is the opposite case to JDK-8240169 AFAICT.
