Re: [] [jakartaee-platform-dev] [jakartaee-spec-project-leads]Automatic Module Names in Jakarta EE 9

For the 9.0 release, I guess it does not matter too much, but the discussion around the name is going to get more involved I suspect, and expand beyond the scope of just an artifact name based module name. For example, to simplify the end user's life, I can see having one or more aggregate modules using the spec base (jakarta.servlet) that define the various import/export/services relationships for a typical servlet app, JSP app, JSF app, etc. With that structure I would expect that we do want .api modules for every spec.

Thanks for the input!

We'll have to leave this thread open for a bit to see if we are opening a can of worms or not... ;-)

Mark, thanks for volunteering to minimally change "java.servlet" to "jakarta.servlet".  If we get additional volunteering along these lines, then we could contain this minimal update for Jakarta EE 9 (authentication, authorization, servlet, and transactions).

Let's see how this discussion plays out (and get input from the Spec Committee) as to what's containable for Jakarta EE 9, or 9.1, or 10.  Thanks!
