NetBeans problem after installing Mac BigSur

I am having problems with netbeans IDE since I installed Mac os BigSur.
In searching the internet it seems to be a problem with NetBeans not finding the home directory?
Most of the changes revolved around changing the config file at this point.  #netbeans_jdkhome="/path/to/jdk"

Terminal commands

java -version
java version "1.8.0_271"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_271-b09)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.271-b09, mixed mode)

/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home

Changed config file to:
netbeans_jdkhome="/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home"

I still get this message and NetBeans 8.2 will not open my projects.

The JK is missing and is required to run some Net Beans modules
Please use the --jdkhome command line option to specify a JDK
installation or see for
more information.

Looking for a solution TIA.

Roger hello...I have the same problem today..How did you solve it?

ok..after some hours trying I solved also...the resume is. Netbeans lost its configuration when migrating to Big Sur..first , the place where is located the Java and second, some of the internal features had to be restored in an error by error basis.
thanks anyway.
