        Description

        In JDK-8264998 [1], Automatic-Module-Name was removed from empty Maven jars to allow seamless adaptation of JPMS.

        It turns out that with the current approach of publishing platform agnostic jars, empty jars need this entry[2]. A better alternative to empty jars is still been discussed. It will need both time and effort.

        Until an alternative is finalized, it is best revert the change made in JDK-8264998.
