Hi George, Thank you for reporting this issue. I ran into the same problem with a gradle-based package during the packaging of easybind. I thought it better to patch  the build system than to add a build-dep on openjfx. I haven't looked into the openjfx/libopenjfx-java packaging yet, but I'm wondering if we can either (a) fix this in libopenjfx-java, or (b) patch up the Debian build toolchain to find the openjfx JARs. I suspect we'll see a big increase in the number of OpenJFX packages in the next release cycle. Cheers, tony  https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-java/easybind.git/tree/debian/patches/01_build_gradle.patch
