We're pretty close to building the JavaFX SDK for Android in the OpenJFX
Currently, the JavaFX SDK build is available at
https://bitbucket.org/javafxports/android/wiki/Home and it is build on the
sources from https://bitbucket.org/javafxports/android-graphics-rt which is
based on the OpenJFX 8.0 tree.
Things like multi-touch support are copied form the 8udev tree into the
Apart from building the SDK from the OpenJFX sources, the big hurdle is the
build process. This is currently a multi-step process but we are trying to
simplify it. For a specific project, I'm already down to a single gradle
file for building a JavaFX app that then runs in 3 flavors: a desktop one,
one using LeapMotion, and an Android one.
