I put it on the bootclasspath when configuring the compiler:

> 					<configuration>
> 						<encoding>UTF-8</encoding>
> 						<source>1.6</source>
> 						<target>1.6</target>
> 						<compilerArgument>-verbose -bootclasspath /Users/tomschindl/Applications/javafx-sdk2.2.0-beta/rt/lib/jfxrt.jar</compilerArgument>
> 					</configuration>

I'm not a maven guru and this was the first solution I thought of and it
works. I have not tried yet replacing this hard coded path through
something I can pass from the outside but once I set up my
hudson/jenkins I'll have to figure that our because it runs on linux.
