Re: [jira] (SUREFIRE-1424) javax.transaction.TransactionManager not visible with Java9

Hi Tibor,

moving this to the dev-list, I don't think JIRA is the right place for  
this kind of discussions.

bq. This is not a regression and not a bug in Surefire.

Sorry, I don't agree with you. The Java8 project provided by St├ęphane  
works with 2.20.0, but not with 2.20.1, so for me this is clearly a  
regression in surefire.

We are all aware that the modularization in Java 9 can break things, and  
yes sometimes that can be quite frustrating. I think it is the task of  
Maven to solve these kind of issues where possible. Maven should solve the  
hard parts for using Java to let users experience a great way to develop  
with Java.

I don't mind picking this issue up and try to get rid of the  
"--add-modules" (this issue just confirms to me it is indeed a  
hack). Alan pointed me to some dependencies we should add, which should  
solve this issue.
