I need to open .jar files which requires Java and JavaFX. I have installed both Java (from Oracle website) and JavaFX (SDK from openjfx website). I have added environment variables by updating
/etc/environment file, and adding
/etc/environment file looks like:
PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games:/usr/lib/jvm/jdk-12.0.2/bin" JAVA_HOME="/usr/lib/jvm/jdk-12.0.2" JAVAFX_HOME="/home/joshi/Documents/javafx-sdk-12.0.2/lib"
For now, I can get a .jar file running by executing:
java --module-path $JAVAFX_HOME --add-modules ALL-MODULE-PATH -jar myfile.jar
There are multiple .jar files, which makes executing above command pretty troublesome. Name of .jar files are pretty non-catchy and complex too.
I want to know if I can add JavaFX jmods to Java permanently. For example, when we execute in terminal
java --list-modules, it should include JavaFX mods in it too.
I have tried:
- Copying JavaFX jmod files in
/usr/lib/jvm/jdk-12.0.2/jmods. But even after rebooting,
java --list-modulesdoesn’t include JavaFX mods. I have also ran
sudo update-alternatives --config java sudo update-alternatives --config javac
- I don’t think creating .sh script files would be a great idea as there would need to be as many script files as there are .jar files.
Any help is highly appreciated. I am on Kubuntu.
You can use environment variable:
All options specified in this variable will be appended to the JVM startup args.
export _JAVA_OPTIONS="--module-path=/path/to/JavaFX --add-modules=ALL-MODULE-PATH"
