Does your test launch NetBeans with --jdkhome to point to your build of 
jigsaw/m? Or maybe you mean that you added your build of jigsaw/m2 as a 
platform and created a project that uses it? In any case, NetBeans and 
other IDEs that read scan the JDK image for JAR files is an area that 
will need attention. One long standing suggestion is a "finder API" to 
be used in conjunction with javax.lang.model to avoid needing to poke 
around in the JDK image.
