Sad you didn't bet, because it works on Java 9 beta releases, see 
https://github.com/findbugsproject/findbugs/releases. However Java 9 
scope is still not final (OMG), so there are still chances that neither 
FB nor BCEL will work on the final Java 9 version.

It was, but we forced BCEL to release 6.0 which we use right now.

Kind regards,
