Why does Eclipse 2018-12 asks the question whether to create a module or not?

When the project name is entered and the Create button pressed, Eclipse issues a dialogue box that has the title "Create module-info.java" and an input box named Module Name with the project name already entered in the input box. The message from the dialogue box says "Discouraged module name. By convention, module names usually, start with a lower case letter". Why does Eclipse 2018-12 ask this question?.

I believe that comes from Java 9.  In that version of Java you can modularize your project (and Java itself is modularized).
