I will to give it a try when there is backport of javafx (https://bitbucket.org/narya/jfx78) updated to latest status of openjfx. It should be fairly easy to write launcher for dalvik.

I tried to start my activity which extends from FXActivity class in „com.oracle.dalvik“ package. But how do I have to specify the JavaFX application class or main method? How do I have to bind the FXActivity with the JavaFX app (Stage / Application)? Is there any demo code available?
