Hi Tobi and Philippe,
Android port is being developed in open source so all developers can see 
every progress. There is nothing to hide. You can understand it as an 
example of porting javafx runtime to a linux based platform not a 
product with a roadmap.
As you've noticed there are 2 launchers DalvikLauncher and 
JavaSELauncher. Have a look at DalvikLauncher it is quite simple how it 
launches an application. What you need to try it out is an java6 (dalvik 
vm limitation)  compatible javafx fork.
On the other hand JavaSELauncher uses standalone vm which is not part of 
the port. It expects that the vm is packaged with an apk. The launcher 
unpacks vm, installs it, setup classpath, main class debug port etc (all 
specified in manifest) and launches it . These are the 2 options which 
can be further extended by the community.

best regards
