While thinking about how to take advantage of Bean Validation within JavaFX 2 based applications, I just learned that JavaFX is actually part of the JDK installation since Java SE 7 Update 2. The latest JDK (Update 5) comes with JavaFX 2.1.1.

This makes it very easy to use the JavaFX API within Maven based applications; all what's required is to add the following dependency to your POM file:


That was simple :)

Now to the bad news: as it seems the installation doesn't contain the JavaFX API sources or JavaDocs. But that's not really a problem, as a ZIP with the sources can be downloaded from OpenJFX's Mercurial server and the latest Javadocs can be found here.
