I just installed Photon on a new computer, and downloaded Java, etc. Then I tried making a simple program. Before it let me use WindowBuilder it popped up a screen offering to "Create a new module-info.java file." Why. should I do that? Well, give it a try. When Eclipse made the requested skeleton GUI program, the code was all marked up with red. None of the imports would be able to pull up the required information.

After a fair amount of frustration I discovered that if I did not make the module-info file then the imports all worked appropriately.

If this is a feature, I don't get it.

I found an article that explains these module-info files for those of us who have not been in the Java development interest group for years:
