JavaFX Maven Plugin 1.4

Posted by In JavaFX

I’ve just merged in contributions from the community on the JavaFX Maven plugin and released these as version 1.4.

Nothing else was changed apart from these contributions. I have been working with the JavaFX deployment guys trying to integrate and improve things using their recently open sourced packaging tools but the build setup for this is a mess, slowing everything down to a crawl. This work has also sucked up the small amount of free time I had available to put into this project recently.

I’m soon to be off travelling and will be offline for a good few months. If you wanted something fixed that didn’t make it into this build, there’s about a week left to make that happen. In particular, I think there is still an issue on Mac native builds. If someone wants to contribute a fix for this I will merge it, otherwise there’s a 50-50 chance I’ll put a fix in myself before I go.

If you have anything else you want fixed, raise it as an issue on the GitHub project. If you provide a fix you have a much higher chance of it getting sorted.

    Well, sounds like those builds tools won’t be showing up in Central any time soon then , I guess? It’s too bad but can’t be helped. I want to thank you for all your hard work investigating into this area, along with everything else you do to support the community. Thanks a ton, and enjoy your travels!

    Hi, a little bit off-topic, but since you are to be unavailable for a couple of months, please consider moving jfxflow to github. See my post on jfxflow-discuss: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/jfxflow-discuss/nfqCW5Zot_0

    @Edub unfortunately the tools won’t be in Maven any time soon (highly unlikely before May/June and then may still be a while). The core issue was that the jfx JAR is custom built for each platform and there’s no easy way to do a big cross platform build of the open source stuff yet. The internal oracle build of the closed source tools is a big messy process too.

    The guys at Oracle working on this have basically inherited the code base as the original guys working on it have moved on to other things. As a result they are having to work through all the build issues, etc, and there’s a lot of refactoring needed to make it all clean. They are looking into it though and if you have questions, or want to keep track of this, I’d suggest posting on the openjfx mailing list and specifically asking questions about it.

    @Pawel see my comment on the google project for jfxflow.
