Not sure if I'm allowed to ask here because it is a Gradle problem, but since JavaFX is also build using Gradle: I'm not even getting JFXtras to start compiling with Gradle 3.3 because of:
/"java.lang.reflect.InaccessibleObjectException: Unable to make protected java.lang.Package[] java.lang.ClassLoader.getPackages() accessible: module java.base does not "opens java.lang" to unnamed module @aa1f72z"
/Probably related to: https://issues.gradle.org/browse/GRADLE-3565

Having a basic understand on jigsaw and decent google skills I've gathered that this is a module configuration problem, and that it should be solvable by adding to gradle.properties:
/org.gradle.jvmargs=//--add-opens java.base/java.lang=ALL-UNNAMED

/But alas...

Any pointers?
