      Description

      The PluginService class can be updated to return a list of plugin entries that refer directly to the Class<?> instances rather than their class names. This would avoid the need to lazily load classes, avoids problems with module systems, and prevents the use of optional dependencies which makes it much easier to write proper JPMS-compatible modules.
