I think we all agree on this and any work into that direction is

If I remember correctly though, netbeans was traditionally compiled
with JDK current - 1 and some time after release was fixed to be
compilable with the current JDK. Witht the faster release cadence of
the JDK and given the wide split: JDK 8 (non-modular) to JDK 11
(modular, deprecated modules removed), it was to be expected that
breakage occurs.
