That one now is able to package Java+JavaFX to a complete self contained app as an .exe file or installer file, and download this and install on windows, without the user having to necessarily install Java itself on the machine before hand and that app will install its own Java in its own installation directly and not in the system.

i.e. the .exe or the installer comes with everything in it (jre, java-fx, etccc). The user does not even have to know the app is build using Java.

This sounds great. But I am having hard time finding an example the net that I can download and try. All what I find are instructions on how to do the packaging. I am sure someone has already made such apps using JavaFX to download and install.

Any one knows of such apps or sites I can download some such javaFX apps totry on windows? Any app will do. I just wanted to see how it works and seehow JavaFX runs installed from an .exe

Thank you,
Steve

I wrote a little Java program that I wanted computer illiterates to be
able to run. So I wrote a C loader program that called javaw and
distributed the program with the JRE image I copied from my computer.
That works fine and is pretty easy to do. The install is just copying
one folder and creating a shortcut to the C loader. A JavaFX program
should work the same.
