Subject Early Access builds of JDK 9 b113 & JDK 9 with Project Jigsaw b113 (#4848) are available on
Date Fri, 15 Apr 2016 08:54:02 GMT

Hi Stefan,

I noticed Apache Ant 1.9.7 now supports Java9 modules!

Early Access b113 <> for JDK 9 is 
available on, summary of  changes are listed here 

Early Access b113 <> (#4664) for JDK 9 with 
Project Jigsaw is available on

  * The important change in this build is that root modules when
    compiling code in the unnamed module, or when running and the main
    class is loaded from the class path, do not include the EE modules.
    More on this in JEP 261.
  * The other change in this build is that the -Xpatch option is now
    aligned with what we have documented in JEP 261, support for the old
    form has been removed.

We are very interested in hearing your experiences in testing any Early 
Access builds. Have you have begun testing against
JDK 9 and or JDK 9 with Project Jigsaw EA builds, have you uncovered 
showstopper issues that you would like to discuss?
We would really like to hear your findings so far, either reply to me or 
via the mailing lists [1], [2].
