Just to follow-up on this. Max Wang from the security group dug into the 
NB usages of this Eclipse library. It turns out NB patches this code 
already and Max only needed to change one line to get it to handle the 
"allow" value added in JDK 12. With that fix, NB starts okay with as expected. Hopefully the NB maintainers 
will be able to include the fix in their next release. The upstream 
Eclipse project have committed a fix too. So I think all good on this 
issue. Hopefully there will wider testing with the EA builds when the 
changes are integrated.
