Builds a jpms OSGi Bundle Layer which can have child Layers that depend on OSGi Bundles as jpms Modules
This project uses Eclipse Neon release or later for development. In order to compile and run the code you need an Eclipse Neon release with the Java 9 beta support . You will also need the most recent Java 9 open jdk build.
Also needed is a patched equinox launcher project (org.eclipse.equinox.launcher) found in my fork of rt.equinox.framework at github in the tjwatson/jpms branch .
Configure a Java 9 jdk installation with eclipse and set it as your default VM.
Import all eclipse projects found in the osgi-jpms-layer repository. Also load only the bundles/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher project from the rt.equinox.framework repository. This should enable an OSGi Framework launcher called OSGiLayer under the Run Configurations wizard. If you run this you will see output from a bundle (osgi.jpms.layer.usage) which creates a new layer for jpms modules which has a bundle layer as its parent. The modules in the jpms layer require bundles from the bundle layer.
