The Java Platform Module System was available with Java 9. In this session, we provide a clear framework for migrating your applications to JPMS.

With Java 9, modularity became a first class construct on the Java platform…Finally! In this session, we explore the default module system and examine how to migrate applications. We'll start by examining the first step in the migration (compiling under Java 9+) and then examine several strategies for migrating your application.

Finally, we will explore advanced concept of JPMS that bring greater structural integrity and encapsulation to the Java platform.
