JMOD is a new format for packaging your modules. This format allows including native code, configuration files, and other data that do not fit into JAR files. The JDK modules have been packaged as JMOD files.
The jmod command-line tool allows create, list, describe, and hash JMOD files:
- create: This is used to create a new jmod file
- list: This is used to list the contents of a jmod file
- describe: This is used to describe module details
- hash: This is used to record hashes of tied modules
