The much awaited Project Jigsaw whose aim is to design and implement a standard module system for the Java SE Platform, and to apply that system to the Platform itself and to the JDK seems to be getting deferred to Java 9 which is expected to available by 2015.

In announcing the deferment, Mark Reinhold, chief architect of the Java platform group at Oracle, cited insufficient time and technical issues. "The proposed development schedule for Java 8 expects work on major features to be finished by May 2013 in preparation for a final release around September," Reinhold said in a blog post
