Maven QuickStart Demo Application for FXLauncher

This example showcases how to configure FXLauncher in your Maven application to provide automatic updates optionally in combination with native installers.

Please see pom.xml for complete documentation.

Note: There is nothing Maven spesific about FXLauncher, and these operations should be easy to perform in any build system. There is also a Gradle version of this project.

Operations

The following operations are supported by the example:

  1. Compile project jar to app.dir
  2. Copy dependencies to app.dir
  3. Generate app.xml manifest
  4. Create native installer
  5. Upload artifacts to auto update repository

	<!-- The JavaFX Application class name -->
	<app.mainClass>no.tornado.FxlDemo</app.mainClass>
