The installation for the Netbeans 11 the latest made available with JDK 12 at first functions quite well, but most of the plugins get disconnected, after about 3 projects, in addition to which the simple Java apps become forced as Maven or Gradle projects. Why? This is misleading and rather disappointing to the developers and students, who take time to try out the new product and its functionalities. Is there a way to get the plugins and the initial set up and its functionalities back or is it just the way that developers, who cannot afford the EE edition gets treated by Apache? There was no indication or mention anywhere that such would be done, so just asking what your organisation's official policy these days.
