What I have seen in many older builds is NetBeans build is supported only
on stable and released Java version.
NetBeans IDE supports latest Java version as a Platform, but the basic
NetBeans IDE build is done on the stable and release java version which in
our case is Java 8

There is a process of shifting the build to new Java version which I
believe is added as a task in the development process later when the Java
release is done for the latest version.

Going by this logic, I will say that the current build will need tweaking
to make it Java 9 build ready.

There are two things in discussion here:

1) Java 9 Support - This is not same as NetBeans building on Java 9.  This
will only mean that we configure Java 9 as a supported platform in NetBeans
(built on Java8 compiler) and then NetBeans will be able to create new
projects in Java 9 and building those new projects in Java 9 platform

2) NetBeans IDE building on Java 9 - here there may be some tweaks needed
to the code where we declare that Java 8 no longer supported for building
NetBeans and shift the building logic altogether to Java 9

So we should be checking Java 9 support by adding Java 9 as a platform
after the NetBeans build is done using Java 8.  This will also mean that
our sysem should have both the Java versions available and installed on them
