I've downloaded JavaFX for Mac to my computer from the Gluon website, but it doesn't come with an installer. It's just a zip file full of files.
In Oracle's instructions for installing JavaFX on a Mac, it mentions an installer, so I went back to make sure that I downloaded the correct package, and it appears I did (javafx-sdk-14.0.1). There's no installer in there.
What are my next steps for getting this installed? Manually copying them to the right place? Where would that be on a Mac?
I saved the sample pom file and the HelloFX.java files to the directory where I've been doing all of my coding.
When I ran the command from the website "mvn clean javafx:run", I go the following error:
[ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.openjfx:javafx-maven-plugin:0.0.3:run (default-cli) on project hellofx: Error: Output directory is empty, compile first -> [Help 1]
When I tried to compile HelloFX.java, I got multiple errors. Here are the first five:
HelloFX.java:1: error: package javafx.application does not exist
HelloFX.java:2: error: package javafx.scene does not exist
HelloFX.java:3: error: package javafx.scene.control does not exist
HelloFX.java:4: error: package javafx.scene.layout does not exist
HelloFX.java:5: error: package javafx.stage does not exist
What is my next step? (By the way, I tried manually placing the JavaFX files in the directories specified by Oracle and that didn't work.)
I guess I've been abducted by space aliens. So unprofessional. They tried to probe me with this tiny ad:
