In the last JDeveloper extension for JFX I used the initial release of JavaFX. The support for compiling a javafx file was missing in the extension. Moreover, the extension didn't make use of the JavaFX SDK.

I have finally upgraded the extension, to use the JavaFX SDK. With this, we no longer need to add the ".fx" extension to the list of files to be copied to classpath during compilation.

The extension works on the assumption that an entry in environment PATH is set, which points to <JAVAFX_SDK_HOME>\bin folder.

There is no Drag and Drop support yet. And of course there will be bugs which you can point out or fix.

To use the new extension, please remove the old extension jar from jdev_home\jdev\extension folder and add the new jar oracle.jdeveloper.javafx2.jar to folder. Restart Jdeveloper. [Once more, please do not forget to add <JAVAFX_SDK_HOME>\bin to your system PATH variable].

You can download the JavaFX SDK from javafx website.

Rest of the menus remain same as earlier extension except for the fact that now you get compilation error if error exists.

Room for improvement:

1) Drag and drop support.
2) Code insight.
3) Better package control
4) Predefined forms and panels like we have in ADF Swing
5) Best feature will be to have controls bound to datacontrols. Imagine doing a drag and drop creating a javafx form for you bound to your database, listening to the changes in the backend :)
