openjdk8 sdk contains the openjfx sdk binaries. So, you don't need to change the classpath in order 
to compile or run your jfx application. Simply add your jdk as a Java Platform.

In case you want to try your own openjfx build with openjdk in netbeans, you can do the following.

In the "Project Properties"dialog of your project, select "Libraries" and add jfxrt.jar to the 
Compile-time and Run-time libraries. Please, find jfxrt.jar in the "artifacts" of your openjfx 


Also, you can find the netbeans projects of the openjfx source tree under the following dir:
