I have a JavaFX application that uses a central database and will have multiple users running recent versions of Windows. |
I was going to run the application via Java Web Start but that is apparently dead or dying. I assume that applets continue to be avoided for serious applications due to the many limitations on them.
It struck me that I'd like to embed my application on a web page where all users can then access the database regardless of where the user is. I wasn't sure if it was even possible to embed JavaFX on a web page but some googling produced this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/27958019/embed-a-javafx-application-in-a-html-webpage#27958301
Unfortunately, I can't get this to work and the second comment on that page says it didn't work for him either. (In my case, Java keeps trying to install the current Java release even though it is already on my computer.)
Before I waste even more hours chasing my tail, I'd like to know categorically if it is possible to embed a JavaFX application on a web page. If so, HOW DO I DO IT? If someone could confirm it is indeed possible and point me to a detailed article or tutorial or manual describing the technique, I would really appreciate it.
I would also be open to suggestions on better designs, although I would be reluctant to give up JavaFX since I really like the TableView in JavaFX and already have the code working in a standalone application. (It's currently using a copy of DB2 on my laptop but I don't have a server at my disposal 24/7 where I can install a database that can be accessed by others.)
