I'm using Jython 2.7.1 and I notice that it cannot import by default the standard Java libraries when using JDK9 (on ubuntu).  Example:

>from java.awt import *

This failed.  I have to import all classes explicitly, i.e. "from java.awt import Color". I guess, Java9 has different locations of the standard jar libraries. How to enable this feature again?

Duplicate of #2362

Thanks, I consider this is a very serious problem that breaks just everything around Jython, i.e. documentation, blogs, books, etc. It has not been solved for 2 years, according to #2362.  Maybe there is simple workaround?

The simple workaround I guess is to use Java 8 not 9. Java 9 has only been out a few weeks and no Jython versions at the moment claim to fully support it.

Having said that I agree this is a serious issue, which need to be fixed as soon as possible.

(For discussion) I'm allocating this to 2.7.2 on the principle that we ought not to hold users back at Java 8.
