JavaFX Maven Plugin

The JavaFX Maven Plugin provides a way to assemble distribution bundles for JavaFX applications (8+ and 9+) from within Maven.

This plugin is essentially a Maven wrapper for the packaging tool that comes with JavaFX, it's called javapackager.

For easy configuration please use our new website (which needs to get updated/reworked again): http://javafx-maven-plugin.github.io

Requirements

  • Maven 3.5 (older versions might work too)
  • Java Developer Kit 8 with at least Update 40

OS-specific requirements

  • (Windows) EXE installers: Inno Setup
  • (Windows) MSI installers: WiX (at least version 3.7)
  • (Linux) DEB installers: dpkg-deb
  • (Linux) RPM installers: rpmbuild
  • (Mac) DMG installers: hdiutil
  • (Mac) PKG installers: pkgbuild

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>8.8.3</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

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

<plugin>
    <groupId>com.zenjava</groupId>
    <artifactId>javafx-maven-plugin</artifactId>
    <version>8.8.3</version>
    <configuration>
        <vendor>YourCompany</vendor>
        <mainClass>your.package.with.Launcher</mainClass>
    </configuration>
</plugin>

To create your executable file with JavaFX-magic and some installers (please see official oracle-documentation which applications are required for this), call mvn jfx:native. The native launchers or installers will be placed at target/jfx/native.

Using SNAPSHOT-versions

When you report a bug and this got worked around, you might be able to have access to some -SNAPSHOT-version, please adjust your pom.xml:

<pluginRepositories>
    <pluginRepository>
        <id>oss-sonatype-snapshots</id>
        <url>https://oss.sonatype.org/content/groups/public/</url>
        <snapshots>
            <enabled>true</enabled>
        </snapshots>
    </pluginRepository>
</pluginRepositories>
