Java 9.0.4
Eclipse 4.7.2
e(fx)clipse 3.0.0.201705220750
Building a swing app
target is a windows EXE

build.xml doesn't work.

Problem #1)
<file name="${java.home}\..\lib\ant-javafx.jar"/>
should be for java 9 (at least - dunno java 8)
<file name="${java.home}\lib\ant-javafx.jar"/>

Problem #2)
basedir is not a supported property of fx:platform

Problem #3)
After fixing problems #1 and #2 in the build, it still doesn't work, claiming it cannot find any modules.

Still working #3

Ideas?

Upgraded to e(fx)clipse 3.1.0 , which should be more obviously available.
No change, so I guess it doesn't matter.

As for problem #3, using jmod to build modules from my code, and adding them to the build seems to work. Would be nice to have an ant task for jmod, but I can build that myself.

But, after that, Inno Setup exits code 2.
Wix gets a bit further, but now fussing with license files and desktop shortcuts not working.

Not sure if any of this stuff is supposed to work anyway. Really, really, not ready for prime time.

Please file a ticket at https://github.com/eclipse/efxclipse-eclipse - but I can guarantee to take a look at this soon :-(

jdk1.8.0_202
Eclipse Version: 2018-12 (4.10.0)
e(fx)clipse 3.3.0
Building a javafx app
target is a windows EXE
I downloaded and installed Inno Setup 6.0.2. When working in Eclipse, I received the message: Detected [iscc.exe] version 0 but version 5 is required. Advice to fix: Download Inno Setup 5 or later from http://www.jrsoftware.org and add it to the PATH.
I checked up. Indeed version 0. Download versions 5.6.0 and 5.5.9. History repeated. I texted to Inno Setup developers and got reply: You should ask the Eclipse people to remove this check or to implement it in a proper way.
In the mean time I will readd a version number to the ISCC banner even though one shouldn't use that to try and detect a version.

Greetings,
Martijn Laan
Is there a solution to this problem?

I'm sorry but we can't do anything here until the new packager from OpenJDK is released. All we do it to call out to java-packager
