Project Jigsaw - Java SE 8 or 9

I recently read about Project Jigsaw which is conceived to be better than OSGi. Frankly I have not understood the purpose of OSGi because - it is complex to understand and for most business applications it is not required to be used as a platform.

However, Project Jigsaw planned for Java SE 8 or 9 release is considered much less complex with far more better features than OSGi. It will provide modularity for JDK on what need to be in the build and better jar library management. Still need to understand and fully appreciate the requirement for this. With tools like Maven, it does not seem to be a requirement.

Anyone, any more thoughts on this?
