- No standards for modularity of dynamically-generated code
- Most systems focus on the dynamic loading of statically compiled code
Work in Progress
Work-in-progress on the "modules" branch. BUILD IS SUCCESSFUL.
Each major namespace group gets its own module.
Every module depends on a "parent" module that specifies which version of Clojure to depend on, and configuration for compile/test/build.
Library authors can override this on a per-module basis.
The "complete" module includes all other modules as dependencies and can build a clojure-contrib "uberjar."
A full build takes over seven minutes on an 8-core, but individual modules can be built independently.
Current Status of Java Modularization
Java 7 / Jigsaw
Java 7 will NOT include JSR 294 (superpackages) or JSR 277 (Java Module System).
Project Jigsaw is an OpenJDK endeavor. It is "focused narrowly upon the goal of modularizing the JDK," and "will not be an official part
of the Java SE 7 Platform Specification."
Java EE 6
Clojure works fine in Glassfish 3 (a Java EE 6 application server). Dynamic loading, eval, everything works.
- Equinox (Eclipse OSGi implementation)
- Clojure does NOT work out-of-the-box
