thanks for the report. We aim to release Netbeans and OpenJDK 8 as the
default environment for Stretch. So don't expect a solution for OpenJDK
7 because it will be most likely removed from Debian before the next
freeze. I don't know why OpenJDK 7 got installed on your system because
the default is OpenJDK 8 now, but I don't think we should invest a lot
of time debugging this issue because OpenJDK 7 won't be supported for
Stretch anyway. Sorry for the inconvenience, but please switch to
OpenJDK 8 at your earliest convenience.
