I'm am so close to just throwing in the towel and switching to another language for creating cross-platform GUI desktop applications.

I just recently came from VB.NET (don't laugh, it worked!) and made the switch to Java because it was giving off the impression that building cross-platform GUI applications wouldn't require such a major learning curve or was to be a much easier process than many have made it seem.

I was so close to settling on with JavaFX after about 1 month of becoming content with and excited about the Java language, I finally tried to package up a very simple 1-button 'Hello, world!' application a few days ago, only to realize that it wasn't an 'easy process' after al.....In fact, it has been nothing but PROBLEMS!

I've been going on for days trying to find a simple solution, only to find out that most of these tutorials that I've been following were outdated and even deprecated.

Then I found in many online forums, folks are claiming that "JavaFX is DEAD"???

Anyhow, I apologize about this long, drawn-out, and even downright monotonous story that I've conjured for you. I'm just trying to see if anyone has a simple step-by-step solution that I can do in either Eclipse or IntelliJ Idea.....HELL, even the command line would be fine with me! I'm very eager to learn this.

If I can't find a solution soon, I'll have to switch to Electron or possibly Python with PyQT5. Please let me know before I just hang up the ol gloves. Thanks in advance if you can offer any support!

UPDATED:
I apologize, but I've already tried the default exporting in both Eclipse & IntelliJ Idea, and touched a little on Maven, but Maven requires a learning curve. If anyone has a good little example I can follow, I would appreciate it.
