Getting started with javafx-8 – Instalating Guide JavaFX 8

First of all, I will use Netbeans for this tutorial and this Windows version.

  1. Intall Scene Builder:
    When you have installed Netbeans on your computer, you must install Gluon Scene Builder.

Once read and accepted the License Agreement and selected a destiantion folder you can pass to the next step.

  1. Scene Builder Integration:
    Once Scene Builder is installed, you must go Netbeans->Options->Java and finally JavaFX.
