Running NM Cable into Cabinet for Under Cabinet Lighting Transformer

I am installing under cabinet lights as part of my kitchen renovation. I am planning to mount the transformer at the top of one of the cabinets. It is hardwired (no receptacle). Is it okay to have the NM cable come through the drywall and directly into the cabinet? I believe that the transformer has itís own built in junction box, so there would be no separate junction box.

NM-b is fine for that application. 14-2 would probably be adequate.

Yup, you need to protect the NM cable if it's subject to damage (which is subjective). At the top of a cabinet at the back, I'm sure you'll be fine.
