NB doesn't allow to select SceneBuilder-8.0.0.jar as Scene Builder Home.
Comment 1 Lou Dasaro 2015-08-30 15:52:39 UTC
Thank you for your report. At this time, NetBeans only supports launching a Scene Builder _executable_ from the directory in which it was installed.

Currently, one must use either of the installers available from Oracle (archive) or Gluon. I have tested both of them on Windows (8.1, native installer) and Ubuntu (14.04, using Debian pkg) and they work fine.

Assuming low/no impact and low severity, I would consider this an Enhancement.

Reporter: If this impacts you (beyond choice of downloads), please describe the impact and severity.

Others: If a downloaded installer does not work for you, please comment here.

Thank you.

I have NetBeans + Scene Builder on an USB drive. This works just fine, since NetBeans offers an OS-independent zip, and Gluon offers a .jar distribution of Scene Builder.

However, the missing link here is exactly this issue: that NetBeans doesn't allow me to select the Scene Builder .jar for opening .fxml files.

Same problem here. I need to use the JAR because I do not want to pollute the system with non-distro RPM's which have (in the past) screwed up system updates and system upgrades to an unrecoverable state. I have been burned with non-repo RPM's before due to dependencies. So pointing netbeans to the jar file, which runs just fine with "java -jar SceneBuilder-8.2.0.jar" but Netbeans refuses this in the options panel.
