Hi,

I'm just running a dummy app based on e4 + EFX on macOS.
Everything runs smoothly from a product launched from the IDE.
I exported the app from the IDE with cross platforms options.

Running built apps from win10 and linux is OK.
When running from macOS (double click on myApp.app), the app starts I can see the splash screen but the app is blocked as a dead lock somewhere between JavaFX thread and main thread.

With a shell run.sh pointing to the content of myApp.app is also OK.

I payed attention in the product config to not check -XstartOnFirstThread option but the symptoms seem quite similar if run from the IDE with this option checked.

Does anyone experience the same issue on macOS ?

Running on a target platform based on modeling 2018-09 + EFX 3.6.2

Thanks,
Stéphane

Well if you want a splash you need to use another launching application - I can't remember it put if you look into the dropdown in the product file you should spot it immediately

Than you very much Tom for the tip :-)

It is this class E4MainThreadApplication instead of the standard E4Application
/**
* An E4Application who assumes to be launched at the same thread as the
* OSGi-Launcher
*/

Then I'm extending this one and now it runs.
