JDK-8214213 :  
$ jdeps --print-module-deps app.jar

It finds the modules required by the specified application.  Its result can be used to create a runtime image for such application to run.

If app.jar depends on libraries that are not found from the classpath or module path, it currently does not report missing dependences.

$ jdeps --class-path libs --print-module-deps app.jar

jdeps --print-module-deps only reports module dependences required by app.jar.   To include the transitive module dependences required by libs, if referenced, -R option can be used.   To improve usability, -R should be the default.

A new --ignore-missing-deps option can be introduced to ignore missing deps.

Backport note: Fix is included in JDK-8168869.
