I might be a bit late to the party but I lately discovered something that might be useful for backporting JavaFX 8 to Java 6:

> Retrolambda lets you run Java 8 code with lambda expressions on Java 7 or lower. It does this by transforming your Java 8 compiled bytecode so that it can run on a Java 7 runtime. After the transformation they are just a bunch of normal .class files, without adding any runtime dependencies.

Hope this helps,
