Inspectopedia Help

Module exports/opens package to itself

Reports packages that are exported to, or opened in the same Java 9 module in which they are defined. The quick-fix removes such directives from


module com.mycomp { exports com.mycomp.main to com.mycomp; }

After the quick-fix is applied:

module main { }
