Is there any source code for the JavaFX SceneBuilder?

This is also simple to do in Eclipse. The main problem I am having is, 
how to pass the location of the resource bundle and especially the 
classpath of my custom controls to SceneBuilder. Without this I am 
seeing only black boxes (not necessarily black) instead of my custom 
controls, and resource bundle keys like "%task-dialog-title" instead of 
"Edit employee task".

In my case this classpath would be assembled from the output directories 
of several dependent projects plus libraries.

Tom, is this something you managed to do in e(fx)clipse?
