A first batch of snapshots for the JavaFX 11 modules is now in the maven
sonatype snapshot repository (see although
you probably don't want to work with these artifacts directly but use build
tools like maven or gradle to do that)

This is work based on the not-yet-merged PR#83:

Basically, you need to specify which modules you need (transitive
dependency management will be handled by maven as the modules contain a
pom.xml with the same dependencies as the, e.g.


I have a few samples that show how you can use those artifacts in your
maven project: (note that this is a temporary
the topics/javafx3d directory contains a number of standalone samples that
can be executed via
mvn clean install exec:java

Note that some of the samples create a build.gradle as well, but I never
managed to get gradle working with the combination of classifiers and
SNAPSHOT versions (it's actually the reason why I went back from gradle to
maven in other projects -- e.g. dl4j related).

If someone else can somehow fix the build.gradle, that would be great of

Before PR#83 is merged, it would be nice to have a few reports from people
using the snapshots.
