    public class JFXPanel
    extends JComponent
    JFXPanel is a component to embed JavaFX content into Swing applications. The content to be displayed is specified with the setScene(javafx.scene.Scene) method that accepts an instance of JavaFX Scene. After the scene is assigned, it gets repainted automatically. All the input and focus events are forwarded to the scene transparently to the developer.

    There are some restrictions related to JFXPanel. As a Swing component, it should only be accessed from the event dispatch thread, except the setScene(javafx.scene.Scene) method, which can be called either on the event dispatch thread or on the JavaFX application thread.

    Here is a typical pattern how JFXPanel can used:

         public class Test {
             private static void initAndShowGUI() {
                 // This method is invoked on Swing thread
                 JFrame frame = new JFrame("FX");
                 final JFXPanel fxPanel = new JFXPanel();
                 Platform.runLater(new Runnable() {
                     public void run() {
             private static void initFX(JFXPanel fxPanel) {
                 // This method is invoked on JavaFX thread
                 Scene scene = createScene();
             public static void main(String[] args) {
                 SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
                     public void run() {
