JavaFX in Max/MSP

    Jun 11 2018 | 2:44 pm
    What do I need to do to use JavaFX inside Max/MSP?
    If I try to compile, it doesn't find the javafx.application.* library.
    Thanks in anticipation.
    EDIT: Oh, my Max/MSP is using Java 1.6, while my command line is running 1.8.

      Hey did you manage to get to work?

      No, not yet. I don't know how to get the JavaFX thread going without using a standalone application. At the moment it just claims that it can't find the JavaFX class.

      Im not an expert on this field, but, I think, integrating JavaFX with Max will be somehow problematic. Standalone Java application (or maybe Processing?) + communication with Max through Syphon, OSC may be simpler.

      For complicated reasons, I need to work out how to simply integrate Max/MSP with JavaFX. Communication with a standalone application wouldn't work for my purposes.

      regarding your original post, I found my default compiler command path on my Mac OS10.8 (within the mxj quickie ide) is : /System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/Contents/Home/bin/javac
      but it should have been: /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_131.jdk/Contents/Home/bin/javac
      just posting this for the record-- not directly pertinent to the issue at hand-- but if I get a chance i'll try compiling some simple Javafx code within quickie and see if it sticks...
