Description Martin Balin 2015-09-22 09:13:05 UTC
Special Jigsaw build of NB dev with Jigsaw EA public build:
Product Version = NetBeans Dev JDK9 branch (Build 20150918-951c25ccfea0) (#951c25ccfea0)
Operating System = Linux version 3.16.0-44-generic running on amd64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.9.0-ea; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 1.9.0-ea-jigsaw-nightly-h3337-20150908-b80; Oracle Corporation

Create sample app ClientEditor, then build it, change source level to support one (e.g. 7). Build fails with error message in NB output window:
Unable to find a javac compiler; is not on the classpath.
Perhaps JAVA_HOME does not point to the JDK.
It is currently set to "/home/mbalin/jigsaw_public"

I have seen the same error when I turned off Compile on Save and wanted to debug a sample AnagramGame project.

Unfortunately, I cannot reproduce the problem using the current Jigsaw build of NB. Is the issue still reproducible on your sources? Thanks.
