The platform does in fact run on JDK 9. The IDE is built on top of that after all, so if that doesn't work the IDE wouldn't run either.
So I just created a brand new platform application, using IDE 9.0 beta with JDK 9.0.4. What didn't work out of the box was running it on the default platform used by the IDE. But when I added the JDK 9 as a seperate Java platform, and ran it using that, the platform app started up without any issue. ~ Hermien On Sun, Mar 11, 2018 at 10:44 AM, Geertjan Wielenga < geertjan.wiele...@googlemail.com> wrote: > NetBeans Platform does not support JDK 9 at this point. > > Gj > > On Sunday, March 11, 2018, Tushar Joshi <tusharvjo...@gmail.com> wrote: > > > Hi All, > > > > I tried creating a NetBeans Platform Application and Run it from the Run > > menu.
