Netbeans X & Java 11?

Hi, Mike.

Did you check the docs?

There is a whole section for IDEs, including NetBeans (, that explains how to work
with both modular and non-modular projects.

While you may have noticed that the usual JavaFX project template doesn't
work, you can use a regular Java project, instead (the ant tasks have not
been updated yet, but they are working on it).

There is a sample (a simple HelloFX that uses FXML) for each possible case
(modular/non-modular, each one with IDE tools, Maven or Gradle), that can
be found here:

And those FXML files work of course with Scene Builder (10, but 11 will be
released very soon).

Hope this helps you. Otherwise please feel free to file an issue:
