Description Alexandr Scherbatiy 2014-02-24 13:12:03 UTC
I run the NetBeans 8 beta with the JDK 9 on Mac OS X.

The NetBeans does not start with the error:
alex$ Unrecognized VM option 'MaxPermSize=384m'
Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.

java version "1.9.0-ea-fastdebug"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.9.0-ea-fastdebug-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.0-b62-fastdebug, mixed mode)

I can confirm this behaviour on Mac and Linux. On Windows it works properly.
Comment 2 Libor Fischmeistr 2014-02-26 10:13:15 UTC
Reassigning to JDK problems. JDK should behave on all platforms identically.
Comment 3 Alexandr Scherbatiy 2014-03-03 11:17:06 UTC
What is the JDK issue number?
