By "the empty package" then I assume you mean the resources are in the 
top-level directory of the JAR file. If that is so then you shouldn't 
have any issues as there is no encapsulation of resources in the 
top-level directory.

On the other hand, if the resources are compiled, meaning you have 
compiled the resources to .class files,  then there will be an issue 
because all types in a named module must be in a named package.
