You should get the current version number for your installed JavaFX SDK displayed.
How it works...
Version 1.2.x of the SDK comes with several tools and other resources to help developers get
started with JavaFX development right away.
The major (and more interesting) directories in the SDK include:
This directory contains tools for compiling, packaging, documenting, and running
JavaFX scripts. They include javafx, javafxc, javafxdoc, and javafxpackager.
This directory contains documentation for various JavaFX tools and the JavaFX
This directory contains tools for JavaFX mobile emulator , which is useful for

This directory contains .jar files necessary to build and run JavaFX applications
for both desktop and mobile environments.
This directory contains configuration files for the SDK tools.
This directory provides sample applications to help you get started.
Setting up JavaFX for the NetBeans IDE
The previous recipe shows you how to get started with JavaFX using the SDK directly.
However if you are more of a syntax-highlight, code-completion, click-to-build person, you
will be delighted to know that the NetBeans IDE fully supports JavaFX development. JavaFX
has first-class support within NetBeans, with functionalities similar to those found in Java
F Syntax highlighting
F Code completion
F Error detection
F Code block formatting and folding
F In-editor API documentation
F Visual preview panel
F Application profiling
F Continuous background build
F And more…
