Description Tomas Stupka 2017-05-15 12:05:23 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 20170511-8c9abee530fb)
Operating System = Mac OS X version 10.11.2 running on x86_64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.8.0_102
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 25.102-b07

Reproducibility: Happens every time

- have a simple java project (maven/j2se)
- jdk9 and
- but source level is set to 1.8 (incorrectly)

module-info in projects view is annotated with an error badge, but there is no mention regarding the wrong source level in the error tooltip 
on the other hand - action items lists the proper error description - "modules are not supported in -source 1.8 ... "
