I think that Alex goes a bit into all that in the unnamed and automatic 
module sections in his JVM Language Summit talk: 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnMDsI2GbOc . For some interesting usage 
of layers to generate dynamic modules, for example, please see the 
Nashorn talk from the same event: 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zk6a6jNZAt0 .

A more detailed exploration of different migration approaches to fully 
modular applications is available in the Advanced Modular Development 
talk at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SU1WFX8yeKM .
