      Description

      When running javadoc on a specific module, with only that module on the module source path, it is observed to generate the following messages:

      javadoc: warning - module compiler not found.
      javadoc: warning - module compiler not found.
      2 warnings

      There are various issues here:

      1. Only the simple name of the module is being reported
      2. The message is misleading: what it means is that the *source* for the module cannot be found, not the module itself
      3. The message is reported multiple times
