Incorrect Digester Name Causing Module Creation Error In Apache Netbeans

      Netbeans 9.0, Ubuntu 18.04, Java 10


      My initial bug report was with Digester.  The Digester developer claims the problem is with Netbeans.  The following is their response.  My initial report is at the bottom of the copied email message.  I am looking forward to your assessment.

      Joerg Schaible commented on DIGESTER-190:


      Sorry, but your analysis is somewhat wrong. The Bundle-SymbolicName is an entry for OSGi and has nothing to do with the JPMS. Digester is simply one of a gazillion other Java archives that have been released before Java 9 (or simply without an Automatic-Module-Name). In such a case, JPMS will normally derive the module name from the file name directly if you insist to put the archive into the module path.

      Why NetBeans tries to do this, I have no idea, because normally such a library should become part of the "unnamed module". So either NetBeans has a problem with elderly archives or you failed to configure your project properly.

      > In my Netbeans 9 project, I attempted to add Digester and Lang 3 as Jigsaw modules.  Both were added to the module path by Netbeans via a wizard

      > module XmlTrans

      { >   requires opencsv; >   requires org.apache.commons.lang3; >   requires commons.digester; > }

      >  However, the project produced the following error when compiled:

      > Compiling 14 source files to /home/sumner/JNB/NetBeansProjectsPre9.0/Applications/XmlTrans/build/classes

      > /home/sumner/JNB/NetBeansProjectsPre9.0/Applications/XmlTrans/src/module-info.java:10: error: module not found: commons.digester

      >  requires commons.digester;

      > 1 error

      > BUILD FAILED (total time: 1 second)

      > It is not possible to change the statement “requires commons.digester” to  “org.apache.common.digester3” to correct the problem.

      > Interestingly, both libraries use the same org.apache.commons directory structure in their jars with the library name at the end as .digester3 and .lang3 respectively.

      > A comparison of the MANAFEST.MFs  however reveals the potential problem.  In the case of Lang3 the manifest lists:

      > Automatic-Module-Name: org.apache.commons.lang3

      > Bundle-SymbolicName: org.apache.commons.lang3

      > Whereas the Digester manifest only references:

      > Bundle-SymbolicName: org.apache.commons.digester


      > Obviously, the error lies with the digester manifest.
