 I was amazed to see Jaroslav Tulach demo NetBeans running Mylyn's Bugzilla bundle. His experiment is part of a plan to have NetBeans interoperate with OSGI. What is fascinating is that these module systems that were developed independently for different purposes; yet, they have enough similarity that they can be integrated so easily (not to trivialize Jaroslav's work).

This bodes well for the Java Module system in JDK7.

We will see people creating "Java Modules" instead of Maven/NetBeans/Eclipse(Equanox)/Felix.....

Not that the dependencies wont still be there but there will be the definition of a standard that will make it easier to pick and choose the best components.
