Im new to developing with Swing and JavaFX and I have a problem when using WindowBuilder.

Im using Ubuntu 12.04 x64 and Oracle Java 7.

If I create a new instance of JFXPanel and then open the Designer view, the JVM would crash. Is this a common problem? any workaround?

This is the class im wrote:
package view;

import java.awt.EventQueue;

import javafx.embed.swing.JFXPanel;

import javax.swing.JFrame;
import net.miginfocom.swing.MigLayout;

public class Start {

	private JFrame frame;

	 * Launch the application.
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		EventQueue.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
			public void run() {
				try {
					Start window = new Start();
				} catch (Exception e) {

	 * Create the application.
	public Start() {

	 * Initialize the contents of the frame.
	private void initialize() {
		frame = new JFrame();
		frame.setBounds(100, 100, 450, 300);
		frame.getContentPane().setLayout(new MigLayout("", "[grow]", "[][grow][]"));
		JFXPanel myFXPanel = new JFXPanel();


And this is the message Eclipse gives me:

JVM terminated. Exit code=1
-jar /usr/lib/eclipse//plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.0.dist.jar
-os linux
-ws gtk
-arch x86_64
-showsplash /usr/lib/eclipse//plugins/org.eclipse.platform_3.8.0.dist/splash.bmp
-launcher /usr/lib/eclipse/eclipse
-name Eclipse
--launcher.library /usr/lib/eclipse//plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_64_1.1.200.dist/
-startup /usr/lib/eclipse//plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.0.dist.jar
-exitdata 292c0004
-vm /usr/bin/java
-jar /usr/lib/eclipse//plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.0.dist.jar 

Thank you

Edit: The same happens in Windows 7 X64 using Oracle Java 7

I have not seen anywhere that claims that WindowBuilder supports JavaFX in any way unfortunately.

JavaFX has its own SceneBuilder for building JavaFX interfaces. But I do not believe that it will work inside of a Swing app that includes a JFXPanel.

I don't know a lot about NetBeans (Eclipse user) but they do seem to be adding JavaFX support to their visual designer. I haven't really seen (or looked hard) any news from Eclipse stating any JavaFX work being done for WindowBuilder.
