So you have tried codesign with Mavericks OS X? I am getting invalid bundle when the jdk is bundled as required by the Apple Store. You have to codesign the jdk plugin seprately. 
Yes you can create a pkg or dmg image but I am looking for the correct way get the jdk codesigned else the app codesign fails also.
Do you have a working example of codesign the jdk in the bundle?

You can still deploy apps to the app store using JavaFX.  You just cannot use the media library at the moment.  You can do it also via non app store distribution and sign it via gatekeeper as well and keep the media libraries in.  And it shouldn't matter what version of Mac OSX you use to build it.

Thanks Richard,
I know some more now. It seems with Mavericks 10.9 codesign and the bundle format that JavaFX deploy creates is no longer valid. There are starting to appear to be more references to this issue on the internet.
So JavaFX apps can no longer be created and work on the Mac at least as far as the Apple Store is concerned.
I may have to downgrade my Mac OS X to 10.8 to create Apple Store distributable JavaFX apps for the Mac.

Oh good grief, Apple! So what should we be using instead? This means I cannot make use of fx media in any app submitted to the app store?
