+JFXGen - JavaFX Game Engine
+
+Welcome to a simple JavaFX game engine. This project consists of the core project called jfxgenproj and sub modules or demos. This document will help you show you how to setup your environment and build executables.
+
+Software Requirements:
+ - Java 7 SDK or later
+ - JavaFX 2.1 SDK or later
+ - Gradle Gradle 1.0-rc-1
+ - Git
+
+When setting your environment make sure you have 'JAVA_HOME', 'JAVAFX_HOME', and 'GRADLE_HOME'. Please refer to install instructions for your platform (iOS, unix, linux, Windows).
+
+Building the game engine and the demos as Java Webstart applictions.
+--------------------------------------------------------------------
+mkdir JFXGen
+cd JFXGen
+git clone git@github.com:carldea/JFXGen.git
+
+gradle -DhostUrl=http://yourhost/path_of_jnlp
+
+Creating a project for IntelliJ IDE:
+------------------------------------
+cd JFXGen/jfxgenproj
+
+gradle idea
+
+cd JFXGen/demos/atomsmasher
+
+gradle idea
+
+Launch IntelliJ
+
+File -> Open Project
+
+Navigate (Browse) to the jfxgenproj folder then click 'OK'.
+Example:
+C:\projects\jfxgen\jfxgenproj
+
+File -> New Module
+
+Import existing module (select radio button)
+Select the browse button '...' to locate *.iml file.
+Example:
+C:\projects\jfxgen\demos\atomsmasher\atomsmasher.iml
+Click 'OK'
+Click 'Finish'
+
+To run the examples:
+--------------------
+You can double click the jar file in your file explorer. (On Windows it works)
+Provided that you have built the executables you can upload them to your Web server. Make sure that the JNLP file's jnlp XML element having the 'href' attribute contains your location of the jar file (using the -D system property to set the host URL). Another way to run examples in IntelliJ is to Ctrl-Shift-F10 or right click ('Run') the file GameLoopPart2.
