I’ve released version 1.5 of the JavaFX Maven Plugin:
The two big fixes in this one are:
- The ‘app name’ is now being set correctly. Previously this was causing the build to fail when generating native bundles for Mac.
- ‘src/main/deploy’ is now included in the classpath for the build tool, meaning you can add anything in there that the JFX packaging tools need. Among other things, this allows you to provide your own custom icons for native bundles (see the JFX deployment tools for details on how to do this).
Thanks to everyone who made contributions for version 1.4 and 1.5 – most of these fixes have come from the community or as a result of community feedback and input.
As I mentioned in my last post, I’m off travelling for a couple of months and won’t be doing anything on this plugin during that time. I am intending to integrate it with the work the JavaFX deployment guys are doing when I get back though. So keep raising issues and requests and we’ll see what we can do with them in a few months time.
I’ll be blogging my travels a little bit too, so if you’re after a distraction check out:
