With an appropriate sense of flair, Sven Reimers has published his JavaFX Scene Builder/NetBeans integration module under the name "Monet", i.e., in the same series of project names as "Matisse", the NetBeans Swing GUI Builder.

Get it here:

Be aware that I am using BizLaf, hence my IDE looks pretty different to the standard NetBeans IDE.

    Getting nicer with each iteration.

    Now that JavaFX is a part of JDK, the next step would be to remove the requirement for a special project in order to use specific features (we don't need one for Swing).

    Oh and was that an Ant reference I saw in the build output?

    So does this plugin add the project classpath to the emedded scenbuilder view and palette? Or in other words, if the fxml uses custom components present in the project's class path, are they recognised by the embedded viewer?

    Try using any components from jfxtras or controlsfx in fxml in a maven project.

    You are a good man
