I meant the work of Jasper Potts which Richard Bair mentioned in his post.

"To be honest, it wasn't until just a couple weeks back at Devoxx that 
Jasper and I looked at each other and realized how stupid we were that 
we didn't think of providing a custom node in the javafx.embed.swing 
package that was capable of doing 2D graphics"

Could this not be the basis of your SwingView?
