Hi, Actually I don’t know of any reason why Window and Scene cannot be created and initialized on any thread. Each of these has a peer, and the *peer* we can’t update except on the right thread (or with care, these are OS specific restrictions or issues). But I don’t see any reason why the Java side cannot be initialized on any background thread. And in fact, that was always my intent for exactly these reasons, having experienced all this pain in Swing before firsthand.
Its just work that needs to be done, contributions welcome :-) Richard On Apr 26, 2014, at 12:48 PM, Tony Anecito <adanec...@yahoo.com> wrote: > Hi Tom this is also true for Swing and the EDT.
