JavaFX Embedded

Hendrik Ebbers
Today I saw that JavaFX was removed from the ARM JDK (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/jdk-8u33-arm-relnotes-2406696.html)  . Does anyone has more information about this?

Answer from Donald Smith (Oracle):

Starting with Oracle JDK for ARM 8u33 and Oracle Java SE Embedded 8u33, "JavaFX Embedded", a port of JavaFX 8 which was only available on Linux/ARM platforms, is not supported, and has been removed from these downloads.

The complete source code for JavaFX Embedded has been contributed to the OpenJFX open source project in the OpenJDK community under the GPL v2 with Classpath exception license.  JavaFX development has been done in the OpenJDK open source community for some time now, enabling JavaFX developers to contribute back their changes to the source code, and produce their own OpenJFX binaries for their target platforms under their own responsibility.

JavaFX continues to be provided as a fully supported part of the Oracle JDK 8 product on x86 platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac). Developers looking for alternatives to JavaFX Embedded could explore and contribute to the OpenJFX project in OpenJDK, or alternative UI frameworks like Swing or AWT.
