Re: [] [jakartaee-platform-dev][][jakartaee-spec-project-leads]AutomaticModuleNamesinJakartaEE9

Thanks, Scott,
Based on your last comment in this Issue, did you end up changing to "java.inject" as the AMN for Jakarta EE 8?  Or, did you leave it with "jakarta.inject"?  I don't think it matters either way, just curious.  I'm going to update Werner's spreadsheet to indicate that it was part of "Java EE 8" since you have a released version of an AMN and the end result should be "jakarta.inject" for Jakarta EE 9.  Thanks!

The DI AMN was added in response to this issue:

However, it really should have been java.inject.

The fact that users are asking for module names brings up the issue of the usage of these api jars outside of the platform releases. An api jar that has one of its targets being Java SE usage needs to be able to evolve to adapt to the runtime users are making use of.

Hopefully Scott can help with that.
Jakarta Inject is particularly weird, because ist automatic-module-name in the ee8 branch suggested it had "jakarta.inject” but the 1.0 JAR in MavenCentral has an almost empty META-INF with no such thing as a module declaration, but it released a 1.0.1 patch release this year with the module declaration.
Its codebase/branch and binaries don’t seem to match, please ask Scott to sort it out, IMO based on the 1.0 state it should be removed.
Jakarta Validation had "java.validation” in its 2.0.2 from August 2019 so that release should be part of Jakarta EE 8 and it seems good to go. I updated the In EE 8 and Issue columns accordingly.
