Experience with piecewise migration Swing -> JFX

we're currently in the process of migrating our Swing application from
Apple JDK 6 to OpenJDK 8 hoping to be able to ship it bundled with
OpenJDK 8 in the coming months. In addition to that we're seriously
considering a Migration of the UI to JFX and it appears very tempting
to do this component-wise, i.e. using JFXPanel.

I have read and understood
but wanted to ask if someone has followed this route and could share
their experience regarding caveats of this. How well does it work for
a non-trivial application? What are the hidden problems one should be
aware of (other than having 2 UI threads).

Thanks in advance,
