Description Petr Somol 2013-05-13 19:20:22 UTC
Till NB7.3 the FX Application project type required FX-enabled Java Platforms. FX-enabled Java Platform was a Java Platform with added support for keeping JavaFX RT artifacts on classpath + for adding JavaFX JavaDoc ans sources. FX-enabled platforms enable combining various FX SDK version with various JDKs, but at the cost of user convenience.

For NB7.4 it has been agreed to remove FX-enabled platforms entirely and to enable using standard Java Platforms for JavaFX projects. This is possible because from JDK 7u6 onwards JavaFX RT is distributed as part of JDK. After the change only the FX distributed with JDK will be usable with the particular JDK, but user experience will improve as the non-standard handling of FX-enabled platforms will not be necessary any more. Consequently, Default JavaFX Platform will be replaced by default Java Platform in FX Projects.
