We removed it from 8u20 because it wasn't supposed to be part of the production release -- it isn't a supported / tested feature of 8u20 (see RT-37584 <https://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-37584>).

I thought that we filed a JIRA to consider adding this functionality in a future release, but I can't find it. Maybe David or Daniel knows?

Daniel, Christian --

There seems to be a strong use for Monocle in the case of doing headless
testing. I am currently using TestFX, and testing on Jenkins requires
having a remote desktop window open to the headless Windows Jenkins slave.

I had started to explore using Monocle with an earlier build of 8u20 and a
tweaked version of TestFX, and it was very encouraging. Without it, I have
a serious hole in my testing strategy.

Hi Christian,

Monocle is gone for the desktop since it is not a tested configuration
there. We only test Monocle in his non-headless implementations, on
embedded platforms.
However, if you build OpenJFX yourself (
https://wiki.openjdk.java.net/display/OpenJFX/Building+OpenJFX) you will
get Monocle included in the build and will be able to use it as before.

Hi all,
I just updated from 1.8.20-b17 to b21 and there is no monocle platform
Will it come back?
Is there any other way to have a headless build?

I was trying around with xvfb as an alternative but sadly:
ES2 Prism: Error - GLX extension is not supported
   GLX version 1.3 or higher is required
Additionally xvfb segfaults...

However I would be awesome if Monocle would be back.
I have a lot of tests for the UI and since I cannot mock JavaFX classes
because they are final I have to run a real application.
