I was just trying the following sample:

        ModuleFinder finder = ModuleFinder.of(path);   //path points to the location of a jar with an unnamed module
        Layer parent = Layer.boot();
        Configuration cf = parent.configuration().resolveRequires(finder, ModuleFinder.of(), Set.of());
        ClassLoader scl = ClassLoader.getSystemClassLoader();

        Layer newLayer=parent.defineModulesWithManyLoaders(cf, scl);

Thank u for ur help

A named module (this includes automatic modules) can't have types in the
unnamed package. So the FindException is correct, this seems to be JAR
file that can't be automatic module. Do you know this plugin? It is
completely in the unnamed package?
