Description Lou Dasaro 2014-01-08 08:34:28 UTC
This is the umbrella for a variety of issues that arise when NetBeans 8 is running on JDK 8 but compilation is set to JDK 7 in Project Properties. If I am in error in working this issue in the manner, my apologies. Please correct me.

It is likely that these issues have a similar root cause, hence the umbrella. 
The stopgap/workaround is for the user to install NetBeans on JDK 7 *if* their intention is to compile for both JDK 7 and 8. My opinion is that this is a valid workaround for the moment, while Java 8 is still early access, but the root cause should still be addressed in a patch or point release if it cannot be addressed in time for NetBeans 8.0 FCS.

Changed from duplicated to blocker and reopened.
Comment 3 Lou Dasaro 2015-10-09 19:14:09 UTC
Remains an issue for NetBeans 8.1. See

However, this and related scenarios/workarounds become unnecessary in JDK 9 branch builds, where one can build JavaFX projects for JDK 7, 8 or 9 targets without changing the JDK to start the IDE.

Therefore, I am marking this Fixed because the related Bugs have effectively been Fixed and Verified using JDK 9 branch build.
Product Version: NetBeans Dev JDK9 branch (Build 201506180405)
