All-in-one download of e(fx)clipse

To make it as easy as possible to get started with JavaFX 2.0 development with Eclipse I’ve just uploaded prepackaged SDKs for Windows and OS-X to

This makes it super easy for you to take e(fx)clipse for a spin – just grab the package appropriate for your platfrom, unpack and start writing your first JavaFX 2.0 application (after you configured the SDK-Location in Window > Preferences > JavaFX).

  1. Question 1: Is there a user guide that includes an installed-package list?

    Question 2: Is WindowBuilder from Google part of what’s included?

    Question 3: Is there a version for Linux Ubuntu?

    • Tom Schindl says:

      1) The list of included features is found on the installpage
      2) No Window Builder is not included and it hardly makes sense at the moment for JavaFX 2.0 development because there’s no support for JavaFX in it
      3) No there’s no linux version because there’s currently no JavaFX 2.0 version on Linux available (See in the Platforms-Section)

    I’ve been using the e(fx)clipse package but I’ve been having some problems. I’m quite new to Java development so I was wondering if you could give me some advice. I’ve using OSX and I can compile JavaFX applications using Eclipse but they run very slowly. I also get strange text artifacts – missing and scrambled letters. I was wondering if it could be due to my configuration. At the moment I just reference the jfxrt.jar in Eclipse. I was trying to set up the JavaFX runtime globally so I could run JavaFX jars from the command line but at the moment it says that my platform isn’t JavaFX enabled. I was wondering if you knew how to set up the runtime environment on OSX Snow Leopard.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      I can’t really help you on the JavaFX problems – I’d suggest you ask at the JavaFX Forum at OTN, the problem on the command line is that the system has no idea where to look up the jfxrt.jar (which isn’t a problem when running inside eclipse) – on windows one can find this out using the Windows-Registry which naturally is not available on OS-X (my guess would be that once they provide an installer they could set an ENV-Variable but that’s something also have to ask the JavaFX Team)

    Why is 1.6.18 instead of latest version 1.8.3 of subclipse?
