Can two or more modules contain the same package?
Yes, NetBeans does permit multiple modules to load from a single package. However, this should be considered poor style and avoided whenever possible. In particular, the Java runtime forbids package-private accesses between classes defined by different class loaders (e.g. classes contained in different modules).
Applies to: NetBeans 6.1 and later
