JavaFX does the same thing for a blocking, modal dialog. It done using another thread, though.

Hi Steve,

My understanding of Swing was that when in a modal dialog, which blocked the EDT, a second EDT was fired up for the duration of the dialog to keep the events flowing.

When you say, below, that only 1 GUI thread is supported (and that thread is the native GUI thread), how are (will?) modal dialogs handled?


Thanks,

Neil

P.S. I've been trying to read Jonathan's article on dialogs on fxexperience.com, but haven't been able to because I get redirected to hosting.xmission.com

This would imply that there was more than on distinguished GUI thread per process. JavaFX runs in the native GUI thread by design and more than one GUI thread is not supported in JavaFX and on some platforms (ie. Mac).

No, this is not supported. RT-29969 (and the non-public RT-32321) is about running multiple applets from the same web page, each in their own JVM. By design, JavaFX runs each applet in its own VM. It is very unlikely that we would ever add the ability to run more than JavaFX applet in the same VM.

Hello,

What is the status of running 2 JavaFX applets in the same JVM (separate_jvm = false)? When we try to load 2 applets into the same JVM we get a runtime error (I think it was class loader related).

When I searched in jira I found RT-29969 (the 2 applet test it refers to may or may not be in the same JVM) which points to RT-32321 which seems to be private (it gives me an error when I try to access it).

Is running 2 JavaFX applets in the same JVM supported?

If not, is that a bug or a feature?


Thanks,

Neil
