Akka and Java 9 modules

(Nikolay Volnov) #1


I’ve read ton’s of different topics but still don’t understand.

Is it possible to use Akka in Java 9 module systems?

I see that they close the issue: https://github.com/akka/akka/issues/23931

I’ve tried to add akka to my module-info and get

java.lang.module.FindException: Unable to derive module descriptor for C:\Users\Nick.m2\repository\org\scala-lang\modules\scala-java8-compat_2.12\0.8.0\scala-java8-compat_2.12-0.8.0.jar
Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: scala.java8.compat.2.12: Invalid module name: ‘2’ is not a Java identifier

Akka actor uses this dependency.

So, anybody could manage to use Akka in modules?

The module system isn’t supported yet. Module name can probably be added to that dependency if you create an issue, but there will (probably) be other unsolved problems.
