GeneralMy first JavaFX .msi installer Pin

Five or so months ago I started playing around with Java and ended up doing a full project in JavaFX. One of the reasons I was interested in Java, is the fact that you can create runables for your project in several platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac iOS, etc.

My only problem: My projects ran fine in the IntelliJ IDE, but I never created a runnable jar, or exe for that matter. So a week ago I decided it is time to get the project to run as a stand-alone executable. Hoo boy! Was in for a surprise! I battled for days. I could create runnable jars for simple Java projects, but the moment I tried with JavaFX fxml windows, it felt like everything came crashing down. I battled for days.

Then in one of my multitude of on-line searches, I came across the Jetbrains IntelliJ help desk. I posted my problem and in a matter of hours a very kind person pointed me to this website:

GitHub - dlemmermann/JPackageScriptFX: A tutorial project featuring a build script (Mac, Windows) for JavaFX applications based on the new jpackage tool.[^]

This is a sample 3-module project with the necessary build scripts for different OS's to create runables (and a MSI installer for Windows). The process is not trivial and I must confess I would never have figured it out on my own. The more I get to know Jetbrains, the more impressed I get.

I can now create MSI installers to install my JavaFX projects on a Windows machine. And if the need ever arises, installers / runables for Linux and iOS. All thanks to Jetbrains!
Get me coffee and no one gets hurt!
