Thanks for the quick reply. Just to recap:
I have JDK 7 on my machine.
It sounds like I should be using JDK8 to play with the FX sources (which
are for FX8?)
Is this more what I should be doing?
- *Download the latest JavaFX Developer Preview
- *Replace with Download JDK8*
- Unzip the binary and put it in ~/closed-jfx
- mkdir -p ~/open-jfx
- cd ~/open-jfx
- hg clone http://hg.openjdk.java.net/openjfx/2.1/master
- cd master
- mkdir -p artifacts/sdk/rt
- *cp -r ~/closed-jfx/javafx-sdk2.1.0-beta/rt artifacts/sdk*
- *Replace with cp the jfxrt.jar from JDK8 to articacts/sdk
- hg clone http://hg.openjdk.java.net/openjfx/2.1/master/rt
- cd rt
- Edit build-defs.xml (comment out '<propertycopy
- cd javafx-ui-controls
