h1. Z2 Modularization Intro
The z2-Environment is a platform for modular application design (or, as we like to say: solution design). Its concept of a module does however differ from what other Java module runtimes offer in that a module in Z2 is not just Java code. In fact, in almost any Z2 based system there will be modules that contain no code whatsoever. That is not to say that Java code is not important or treated with indifference, it is rather that we recognize that a module, a logical partition of a system's ingredients, should contain any kind of _component type_ that the system understands.
