I should also point out that this shortcoming was identified nearly 9 years ago.
I would love to make some progress on this, but I think doing it right is a bigger job than “outsiders” can tackle. Ideally most of the desktop APIs should be supported by JavaFX without AWT/Swing. I think that requires some careful thought. Some of the code should be independent of the UI toolkit and it could be shared between the AWT and JavaFX implementations. In a modular JRE we shouldn’t need the Swing modules to have a system tray icon in a JavaFX app.
