Thanks for confirming. Your experiment to start NB using jigsaw/m2 as 
the JAVA_HOME and trying projects using jigsaw/m2 or jdk9/jdk9 as the 
platform for a project confirms that this is probably NB looking into 
the JDK image for rt.jar and other JAR files and not finding anything 
that it recognizes. This is one of the big compatibility issues that we 
will need to get over and also one of the reasons for trying to get this 
done early in JDK 9 so that there is a lot of time for the IDEs and 
other tools to add support.
