Hi all,
Hi Linda/Bill,

seems as if the big news today also has some influence on Java EE 7/8.

With the current plan we can't work on any further modularization
based on Jigsaw before 2015.

I would love to have a brief idea about what this mean to the plans
for EE in general.
Remembering some discussions about logging and modularization efforts
planed to address with the JDK base in place.
I still believe that the PaaS focus of EE 7 also lacks a lot of
thoughts around this topic and I am wondering how everybody
else sees this.

Thanks for some clarifications,
- Markus
