Help with org.beryx.jlink plugin

running:
gradle jlink

getting:
Task :createMergedModule FAILED

/Volumes/Dev/qirl/build/jlinkbase/tmpjars/qirl.merged.module/module-info.java:320: error: module not found: javafx.graphics

requires javafx.graphics;

Suggestions?

I think it is because JavaFX is no longer bundled by default by various JDKs. You can find some JDK which do, but you might be better to off to use OpenJFX.

More I don’t really know. We ran into this issue on the asciidoctor-gradle-plugin when we wanted to add support for something that used JavaFX.

I have followed https://openjfx.io/openjfx-docs/#gradle on how to install both openjdk and openjfx. Running the application works, only jlink that doesn’t work.

I have followed https://openjfx.io/openjfx-docs/#gradle

What is your JAVA_HOME environment variable pointing to?

/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/openjdk-12.0.1.jdk/Contents/Home

As @Schalk_Cronje said

I don’t think that JavaFX is bundled with openJDK by default. Perhaps this stack overflow thread is a good place to start

jlink plugin is from 2018. The stack overflow post is six years old. It is highly unlikely that jlink does not work with the way javafx is set up today.
