Description keks 2014-11-03 11:29:50 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 8.0.1 (Build 201408251540)
Operating System = Windows 7 version 6.1 running on amd64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.8.0
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 25.0-b70

The newer functions of the Objects class (like Objects.nonNull(Object obj) or Objects.isNull(Object obj) seem to be ignored and a "Dereferencing possible null pointer" hint is shown when trying to access a field that has just been checked.
MyType myVar = someOperationsResult();
if (Objects.nonNull(myVar)) { // returns "obj != null;"
	myVar.doSomething(); // only gets executed if myVar != null yet the hint shows up
I'm guessing it's sort of a dublicate of
