sorry for reviving this 8 month old thread but this is basically about 
the same topic. Today I tried to open FXML with custom controls in 
SceneBuilder, using e(fx)clipse - and failed because SceneBuilder did 
not know about the custom part. Ssame problem if the FXML references one 
of my enums.

Is there some way to get this working and I just did not find it so far? 
Or is the (CLI) API you are talking about not yet available? I didnt 
find CLI documentation for SceneBuilder to check for myself.

Other than that there are more issues with SceneBuilder affecting custom 
controls (DTL-5089), or URLs relative to the classpath not working 
(DTL-4294), but it would be nice to have at least the classpath problem 
out of the way.
