I have had some problems setting up JavaFX to work on my Mac. I’ve tried desperate measures (I even read and reread the instructions) but it did not help. Luckily, I am at Devoxx at the moment and there seem to be a lot of JavaFX gurus here (and it is running on all their Macs). So I asked them…
It turns out that sometimes the software does not automatically pickup the settings like it should do if you give it the JavaFX SDK path. The solution is actually really simple (isn’t it always once you know). Enter these values manually and it will work. You can see the correct values for my setup below (so just adjust to your machine).
Thanks to @steveonjava for a great talk at Devoxx and putting me out of my misery…
