Hi everbody,

I need Eclipse with JavaFX support. So, I'm running macOS with Mojave. I've downloaded Eclipse in version Version: 2019-06 (4.12.0) and the latest Java SE SDK 12. Unfortunately, I'm getting in my JavaFX-project, which I've gotten from GITHUB, a lot of errors. Somehow "directives" or "buildpaths" are missing for my machine. I have made a system search. I can't find any JavaFX directories or even the file called -> jfxrt.jar. No framework or libraries... :/

So, I have tried to get this file and have added it to the build path inside the project directory... Then all the errors were gone but it isn't still running properly. It's strange because on this page those guys claim:
.../technetwork/java/javafx/downloads/index.html
Quote:

The JavaFX Download Section has moved

As of JDK 7u6 JavaFX is included with the standard JDK and JRE bundles. Please download the JDK or JRE to use JavaFX.

If you are looking for the JavaFX Scene Builder download you will find it in the "Additional Resources" section of the main Java SE Download Page.


So, I can't even install it separately. I have installed the latest Java SE SDK for macOS? In my opinion there is something missing and all the pages are leading you to a big question mark. How can I get my JavaFX running?

Thansk for any advice in this matter.

Simon from CH :)

JavaFX was removed as of JDK11: https://blogs.oracle.com/java-platform-group/the-future-of-javafx-and-other-java-client-roadmap-updates . You'll find more info at https://openjfx.io/ and https://openjfx.io/openjfx-docs/#install-javafx (the download link is in the first sentence).

Thank you Nitin for your short reply. But then I'm wondering how can I get this project working on my machine? Please advise me how I can get it running.

Cheers mate,
Simon

I have no clue either, but did you try installing from https://gluonhq.com/products/javafx/
