Yes, that is the plan.

Actually, there are 2 paths:
1. create a JavaFX SDK (see https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8198329
2. create and upload the JavaFX modules to the traditional, popular
repositories (maven central, bintray) and make sure developers can use the
API's using maven/gradle (see

This is imo the most important work right now, and a number of people are
working on it.

I am very positive this [both paths] will be realised before the Java 11
release date.
