Java FX Native Packaging 2023

MithelJul 24 2023 — edited Jul 25 2023

The posts I've found about creating a native application (that uses JavaFX) are “ancient” (around 2012/2013). What is the current status? Is there a way to do this?

I reached out to IntelliJ support and their comment was “_JavaFX is not an easy framework to package properly._” and recommended using “JPackageScriptFX” (quite complex). So far I haven't been able to get JPackageScriptFX to work (looks like due to a problem with “Wix”).

Is anyone able to actually create a JavaFX (native) application? Java's one major weakness has always been the inability to make a native application and thus distribution / deployment nightmares.

If you aren't building a native application, how are you deploying so that your users don't have challenges configuring their environment?
