Looks like an ergonomics issue - j2seproject is just being turned on.
This doesn't look like ergonomics issue, but maybe a configuration problem.
The exception probably occurs when you have glassfish.common module but no glassfish.javaee
Glassfish.common has a layer entry calling org.netbeans.modules.glassfish.javaee.Hk2DeploymentFactory.createPrelude (from the glassfish.javaee module).
Now, I have an installation containing glasfish.common but no glassfish.javaee, as I have opted not to install glassfish during installation.
And I see no dependency that would prevented such a situation and specifically in the log here, glassfish.common is enabled and glassfish.javaee is not mentioned at all.
This exception will likely pop up for many users after the installation of the full IDE, upon creating/opening their first java project. This makes very bad OOB experience.
