re: Creating a native executable in Windows with GraalVM VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I tried to make graal native image to work for javafx, and failed, leaving notes for the record.
Even after making several configurations changes I am not able to get it to work.

The project I am compiling is thejavafxproject
with the entry point - JavaFxEntryPointMainMethod

This is the command I used to build the native image.

\graalvm-ce-19.0.2\bin\native-image.cmd -H:+ReportExceptionStackTraces -H:JNIConfigurationFiles=jniconfig.json -H:ReflectionConfigurationFiles=reflectconfig.json -Djavafx.verbose=true -Dprism.verbose=true -Djava.library.path=\graalvm-ee-19.0.2\jre\bin -cp \graalvm-ee-19.0.2\jre\lib\ext\jfxrt.jar -jar thejavafxproject.jar 

I am able to get a native image, which will crash :'(

Good attempt! Gluon is supposedly going to release a Maven/Gradle plugin to get javafx working with openjdk and graalvm for Windows "shortly." They just recently released the beta version for macOS, so I have high hopes!
