How to Instal JavaFX 1.1 plug-in for Eclipse on Linux

>> 20 February 2009

A plug-in for JavaFX is available on " Project Kenai’s " site.
I've tested this plug-in on Linux using JavaFX SDK 1.01 and 1.1 and it works fine

Download the Plug-in

You can download a plug-ins for Linux, Windows and Mac or you can use "Update" to install the plug-in online.

Note :
This project is referenced on Sun's Web site

Download :

Download and Install Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers

If you want a full functional plug-in you must install this bundle. Otherwise you cannot get the "Snippets" in Eclipse.

Install 32 or 64 bits according to your Linux version

System Requirements

  • JDK 6 Update 12 or later
  • JavaFX SDK 1.1 or (1.01) installed

  • Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers

  • Eclipse Plug-in for JavaFX

Installer JavaFX SDK sur Linux

Installing Eclipse
All you have to do is to gunzip the file to get Eclipse installed

$ tar -zxvf eclipse-jee-ganymede-SR1-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz

Note :
Although installing the plug-in can be done simply by gunzipping and unzipping components in the same directory as follows, it’s recommended to install plug-ins using "Update Softwares" in Eclipse

$ tar -zxvf eclipse-jee-ganymede-SR1-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz

$ unzip

$ eclipse/eclipse -clean

Preparing for Installing the Plug-in
Create a directory for the plug-in, copy and unzip. We will use this directory later in "Update Softwares"

$ mkdir eclipse_plugin

$ cp eclipse_plugin

$ cd eclipse_plugin

$ unzip

Start Eclipse

$ Eclipse_Root_Directory/eclipse

Note :
When you gunzip the Eclipse.xx.tar.gz you get a directory called "eclipse" this is the defaut I have kept this in the examples

Installing the Plug-in

" Help " -> Software Updates

Click on " Available Software " tab -> " Add Site "

Click on " local "

Browse to the directory where you unzipped the plug-in
This was done above in " eclipse_plugin "

Right click on JavaFX Features -> Install

Note :
Select JavaFX Features before right clicking

Click on " Next "

Read the license and " Finish "

Restart Eclipse

Create a Java Project

File -> New -> Project

Select " Java Project " -> " Next "

Enter Project Name

Click on " Finish "

Click Yes to open Java Perspective

Add " Java Nature "

Right click the newly created Java Project -> JavaFX -> Add JavaFX Nature

Error Message !!!

The error message indicate simply that JavaFX SDK was not found

Click on "OK" to browse to your installed JavaFX SDK and configure


Select JAVAFX_HOME (empty) in " Classpath Variables " -> click on "Edit"

Click on " Folder " -> Select your JavaFX SDK directory
This can be JavaFX SDK 1.1 or 1.01

Select JavaFX SDK folder -> OK

JavaFX SDK folder is selected
Click on " OK "
Another " OK " to quit " Classpath Variables " dialog

Add a Package and a Script in the Project

Right click on " src " -> New -> Package

Enter your package Name and " Finish "

Add a JavaFX Script

Right click your package -> New -> Empty Script

Give a Name to the Script

Enter " Main " JavaFX (file name is " Main.fx ")

Click on " Finish "

The script is opened in the editor

Add a " Stage "

Click on " Stage " -> keep your finger on the button -> move and drop inside the editor

Note :
You can also right click on " Stage " in the Snippets -> " Insert "

Set some properties if you like

Click on " Insert "

Add a component to the Stage

Run the script

Always save your work.

Right click on " Main.fx " -> " Run As " -> " JavaFX Application "

Run configuration dialog is opended

Click on " Run " to run the script

Et voilà. All is OK
