Eclipse Export JavaFX Project to Runnable Jar File - Nothing is Showing up? [message #1837921] Wed, 10 February 2021 15:16 Go to next message

I am new to using Eclipse, JavaFx, and the Java language in general (came from VB.NET, Javascript, & PHP background).

So, I'm trying to do a simple test where I export a very simple JavaFX program in Eclipse, but I keep getting the following error message inside of the command line when I try to test to see why the exported .jar file never appears or never opens up when I double click on the .jar file to run it:

"JavaFX runtime components are missing, and are required to run this application"

I have tried to export the project as a "Runnable Jar File", but only to no avail. This must be a common issue, no?

I'd greatly appreciate any support.

Hi,

The way I managed to use JavaFX is using Maven.

I just put:
<dependency>
<groupId>org.openjfx</groupId>
<artifactId>javafx-web</artifactId>
<version>15.0.1</version>
</dependency>

And almost all JavaFX stuff is known to the project.

In addition, I add module-info.java with the content:

requires transitive javafx.base;
requires transitive javafx.controls;
requires transitive javafx.graphics;
requires transitive javafx.media;
requires transitive javafx.web;

I know this is short (Zoom is also an option).

Regards.

Can you give me an example starting from point A? I'm not familiar with modules yet. I have very little experience with Maven too, although I have gotten my toes a little damp in it. Thanks.

Hi,

I suggest we use Zoom. It is much simpler.

Can you send your email or phone (for WhatsApp) so I can invite you for Zoom meeting ?

Regards.
