Update JavaFX in JFXPanel while EDT is blocked

is there a way to force a JFXPanel to update itself while the EDT is 

This is my situation: on startup the Swing application shows a login 
screen with a progress bar. This login screen is a JFXPanel and the 
progress bar is a JavaFX control. In the background lots of 
initializations are going on, and much of this should run on the EDT. 
Therefore it is executing within SwingUtilties.invokeAndWait - but that 
also seems to block updates to the JFXPanel and the progressbar is not 

Maybe I can force an immediate repaint of the progressbar only? After 
all, I am running two GUI toolkits at the same time, both with their own 
GUI threads, so I'd like to take advantage of that...
