Yes, thank you Emestas, much easier solution.

The Xbootclasspath option is no longer supported bij JDK11 and apparently has to be changed
to --patch-module. It is however still used in the ANT build-impl.xml file under endorsed.classpath.path.
The problem is that if you change "-Xbootclasspath/p:" to "-patch module java.base=" that
NetBeans automatically overwrites it back to "-Xbootclasspath/p" when you change properties
of a project. -Xbootclasspath/a and -Xbootclasspath also don't work.
> I also get the following error when running a class even when I changed everything to
--patch module:
> {{-Xbootclasspath/p is no longer a supported option.}}
>  {{Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.}}
>  {{Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.}}
>  {{C:\Users\user1\AppData\Local\NetBeans\Cache\11.0\executor-snippets\run.xml:111: The
following error occurred while executing this line:}}
>  {{C:\Users\user1\AppData\Local\NetBeans\Cache\11.0\executor-snippets\run.xml:94: Java
returned: 1}}
>  {{BUILD FAILED (total time: 0 seconds)}}
> Removing the cache folder doesn't help. I am not able anymore to run this class even
when I change the Source/Binary format of the project back to JDK1.8. It seems that Apache
NetBeans has hardcoded -Xbootclasspath internally?
