It was removed from the Oracle JDK 11 (it never was part of OpenJDK 11).
The javafx.* modules were included in jdk-11-ea+13 and gone in
jdk-11-ea+14. From the point of view of OpenJDK 11 there is no change.

This came up during the review of changes I made to FXLauncherTest .
Alan and Mandy suggested that this functionality should be removed at
some point, but it will be an incompatible change if done in JDK 11. I
plan to file a follow-up JBS issue to consider removing this. One
possible timeline would be to "deprecate it for removal" in JDK 12 and
remove it in JDK 13.
