Unlikely without help from the community, given that FX itself is no
longer supported on linux-arm. We currently have no plan to add such
Quite annoying stuff. BTW, I've just read
It's quite curious. I've just ordered a Raspberry Pi 2 and was planning
about writing a media center prototype with some ideas in mind. In the
past years I did lots of stuff with imaging and media, and was with Swing.
I struggled with tons of incomplete features in the imaging and movie
APIs, lots of additional libraries in order to have a decent modern UI
(with animations and such), because Java didn't offer them out of the box.
In the end I quit because it was frustrating to always be forced to fix
something at the basics level. I mean, I just wanted to focus on the
application. Now, fast forward some years and we have that Java FX, with
bells and whistles. I supposed I could at last enjoy writing an app on the
RPI without worrying about missing, incomplete, partially unsupported
stuff, but I was wrong. It seems that no matter Sun or Oracle, there's a
sort of curse preventing the Java ecosystem to fully work on the reference
rich UI hardware.
Sorry for the rant, nothing against people of course, but that's just my
feelings at the moment.
