JavaFX Maven Plugin

The JavaFX Maven Plugin provides a way to assemble distribution bundles for JavaFX applications (8+) from within Maven.

For easy configuration please use our new website: http://javafx-maven-plugin.github.io

For (outdated) documentation/examples, your can look at archived website: https://web.archive.org/web/20141009064442/http://zenjava.com/javafx/maven/

A new website will be provided soon and recieves it's final polish, so please be patient.

Quickstart for JavaFX JAR

Add this to your pom.xml within to your build-plugin:

<plugin>
    <groupId>com.zenjava</groupId>
    <artifactId>javafx-maven-plugin</artifactId>
    <version>8.2.0</version>
    <configuration>
        <mainClass>your.package.with.Launcher</mainClass>
    </configuration>
</plugin>

To create your executable file with JavaFX-magic, call mvn jfx:jar. The jar-file will be placed at target/jfx/app.

Quickstart for JavaFX native bundle

<plugin>
    <groupId>com.zenjava</groupId>
    <artifactId>javafx-maven-plugin</artifactId>

    <configuration>
        <vendor>YourCompany</vendor>
        <mainClass>your.package.with.Launcher</mainClass>
    </configuration>
</plugin>

Last Release Notes

Version 8.2.0 (26-Nov-2015)

Bugfixes:

  • bugfix #159 added support for openjdk/openjfx (version-checker failed with NumberFormatException due to wrong expectations)
  • added workaround for bug #167 regarding native windows launcher configuration-file (cfg-file), bug is inside Oracle JDK since 1.8.0 Update 60 (to work around this, this plugin tries to enforce property-file-format, which does not contain the problem)

New:

  • added new property to disable workaround <skipNativeLauncherWorkaround167>true</skipNativeLauncherWorkaround167>
  • added new mojo: calling mvn jfx:list-bundlers shows currently available bundlers with ID, name and descriptions, including their specific arguments able to be passed via <bundleArguments>-configuration
  • added possibility for "secondary launchers", makes it possible to have more than one native launcher
  • added possibility to filter dependencies while putting required JAR-files into the generated lib-folder
  • added property to disable transitive filtering
  • added CONTRIBUTING-file (fixes #125)

Improvements:

  • added some IT-projects and updated others
  • updated to more Java 8 syntax
  • added Windows-CI via AppVeyor (including status badge)
